Stack Overflow Extras (SOX) is a project that stemmed from the Stack Overflow Optional Features (SOOF) project.
The SOX userscript adds a bunch of optional features to all sites in the Stack Exchange network. These can be toggled on or off from an easy to use control panel (see screenshot below).
Note: This project has no relation to Stack Overflow or Stack Exchange; it is simply a userscript that enhances the sites!

GM_*functions in order to save your settings!
Install the script. Clicking on 'install' below will make your userscript manager prompt you automatically to install it.

Go to any site in the Stack Exchange Network (e.g. Super User or Stack Overflow). You will automatically be asked to choose and save your settings. A toggle button (gears icon) will be added to your topbar where you can change these later on:

Bugs and Feature Requests
Please post bugs and feature requests as issues on Github, where we can track them easily and push updates quickly. Please do not post them as answers on Stack Apps -- they are much harder to manage!
Pull requests to add new features or improve the existing ones, etc. are welcome! Please head to the Contributing wiki page to get started.
Please see the change log at Stack Apps.
