The option (tick box thingy) make it unusable while zooming the image.

Missing a mouse scroll to zoom in/out, and an option to save/convert image as .jpg, .png or webp

Really nice extension. If possible work on the flicker from white to black initially. It's more than just the flicker from opening a new page. Seems like first a white background is rendered and then the color is changed to black(what I chose) instead of black directly
