Doesn't work anymore :( This extension is super useful and use to work really well. It made reading code in Github so much easier, especially with code where Github doesn't support "go to definition". But seems like it stopped working.

in the last versions of github is worked buggy. because i see doubling the selected text

Love it, exactly what I was looking for! Since I use this feature all the time with Atom, I can't live without it :) Great work!
