Screenshot / Code Snippet
Chat Overcharged is a userscript that aims to improve the quality of life of chat users. It is a living project, and more features are going to be added as the userscript matures.
The initial release (v1.5.1) focuses on making inserting links into messages easier:
- If you had any text selected, the link title will be prefilled accordingly.
- If no text was selected, the script will attempt to fetch and use the page title as one.
- Choosing "add link" inserts a Markdown-formatted (
[title](url)) link at cursor position.
- If any text is selected before clicking "add link", it will be replaced by the formatted link.
- The modal can be freely dragged around.

|1.9.0||Keyboard shortcuts for text formatting|

The script does not need a userscript manager to work (but shipped with the necessary headers anyway).
