Needs an option to make the rotation apply to 1 tab only, and I don't like having to refresh the page to apply the rotation. I will update my rating if/when these issues are fixed (please notify me in that case).

It works! thanks! For those who cant still use this extension, right-click the extension first and choose the orientation you like. Just like explained in the overview.

Tried this on a 2020 MacBook Air M1. It does rotate but renders less than half the page making the whole extension useless.
