How do I enable this on Stack Exchange sites? – ChrisF Feb 7 '13 at 20:39
@ChrisF, scratch the previous comment. This is now available for all StackExchange sites. Because of my rep limitations, I can only test is on StackOverflow. If you (or anyone) can test it on other StackExchange sites, I'd appreciate the feedback! – James Hill Oct 1 '14 at 14:24
I'll try to remember to give a try when I get home. – ChrisF Oct 1 '14 at 14:34
I've been using the 1.0 user script version with Greasemonkey/Firefox for more than a year now on Arqade and it works fine. The user script download link is currently missing. Can it be hosted on another site? – galacticninja Feb 8 '15 at 10:22
@galacticninja, check out UserScripts went down a long time ago and is not coming back. I'm currently only hosting this as a Chrome extension. – James Hill Feb 8 '15 at 12:49
It currently states "Item not found. This item may have been removed by its author." when I try to access the Chrome webstore page. – galacticninja Jun 19 at 8:44
