Exactly what I was looking for. Code reviews are mundane without the ability to insert a Pikachu GIF at will.

Thank you very much for this great extension. I'm now the most popular code reviewer in the team. Everybody wants me to review their PRs because of the fun GIFs I'm adding to the review comment :)

I basically can't do my job well without this extension, so thank you. Though whatever the current github-changed-something bug prevents me from selecting the "suggestion" button, so I had to disable it temporarily. Is there some way we can track an issue or a whatever to know when the fix has come thru?
