This a great plugin for chrome but needs some UI improvements for usability. I love the download capabilities! No doubt, but when you simply want to use the Instagram volume controls and they are covered up by the Byond buttons, it makes the user experience FRUSTRATING! Every time I want to see a video with sound I must first open up Chrome settings, go to extensions and disable Byond. The only reason I have not removed the extension completely for this reason is because of the usefulness of the Instagram downloads. Please - Just inset your Byond buttons a little more toward the center of the frame, away from the standard Instagram controls... PRETTY PLEASE

I am loving the control of Byond. Being able to type from my desktop and choosing the shape of the photos has been a real plus. Only issue I have is thatI can't upload more than one photo at a time.
