Summary

Shows the title text under xkcd comic strips.

The text is visible under the comic strip only when you're holding your mouse over the strip, or when you select the text. This prevents you from accidentally reading the text too early, as in some cases this could be sort of a spoiler for the strip.

User reviews
Extremely bad. It has ONE JOB, and somehow manages to completely fail at it. It never shows the alt text of the xkcd ANYWHERE on the page. The only thing it seems to do is show the *title* text (which can always be easily read without the extension by simply hovering over the comic), but the alcual *alt* text is nowhere to be found. 100% misleading
