Why this over other available options? For one simple reason: Privacy. This extension is made to be light and private. It doesn't require any permissions or reads your browser history.

Why "subr" over "r" or "/r/"? Usability and efficiency. "r" is too often used just for itself, e.g. when learning about the programming language R, or googling a product id that starts with "r". "/r/" requires the user to go out of the way to type the forward slash key. How inconvenient! Why not just use the alphabet?

Ever wanted to go to a subreddit, without having to type ""? Well, this is the extension of your dreams! Now you only need to type "subr", followed by a space or tab, and then your desired subreddit of choice.

Benefits: Saves you 8 (eight, yes, EIGHT!) whole letters of typing! Less than 5KB! That's less 0.0000002% of a 500GB hard drive! Not persistent, so it won't hold up system resources! Lets you get to a certain subreddit quicker and faster! Increase the efficiency of your "work"flow! Free!
