I'm impressed with how much nicer the web gets with this. Thank you
Yawning!  :)

Ahh that's why that happened.  lol

Interesting point.

I've noticed some hiccups with medium on the auto mode, like say
It sometimes works if you hit refresh though.

Just noticed this minimalist whois client in node.js :

A task bar icon might find several uses:
- A "View this page through archive.is" button for when CFC misses a
CAPTCHA, or even if the CAPTCHA is not CloudFlare.
- A "contact site button" that worked even after passing to archive.is.
- A "Give me the CAPTCHA" button for those who configure CFC to
automatically load archive.is.  

I'm using another browser profile for this last point currently.  In
fact, it fit perfectly into my existing pattern of browser profiles.
Yet, browser profiles are not user-friendly, especially in TBB, so this
would benefit people who do not use profiles. 

Wonderful extension!
