User reviews
The biggest issue with this extension is that it often kills links by bolding the first half. The link won't show up as blue, or lead anywhere if you click it. This isn't too bad when it's a url, or a properly formatted citation, because you can see the link and turn off the extension to use it normally. The problem arises with hyperlinks. It's often impossible to tell that a link exists there in the first place, causing you to lose potentially important information in whatever you're reading. Other than that the only issue is that sometimes the extension won't work when a website first loads, but refreshing the page fixes it. It's really not a big deal Overall it's a great extension that's super helpful. Even if the link issue never gets fixed I'll continue using it, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.
