love it ! Only problem i notice, is it breaks login on Ebay (Australia for me). Loads fine in incognito, troubleshot the whole list of extensions, and found the culprit was this extension. Not a huge problem, but hope a fix can be done :)

Promising, needs features. - Doesn't slow down large pages appreciably. - No multi-list management. I'd like to have context specific lists that I can enable one or more per page - No ability to choose color. Some things I want in red. eg: "error", etc.
