Summary

Automatically tracks your spot as you read through Homestuck (or any other story on that site: Problem Sleuth, The Homestuck Epilogues, etc.) and brings you back to the last page you've read at the click of a button. No more needing to edit bookmarks manually, or struggling to remember your last page when you forgot to edit the bookmark.

It will also pop-up a notification whenever there is a new update on Homestuck.com. If there are ever any additions to the epilogues, or if a brand new story gets posted, you'll know right away with this extension!

On the Options page, you can:

  • turn notifications on or off
  • upload a custom notification icon
  • upload a custom sound clip to play when there are updates
  • turn the page count on or off (if enabled, the button in the toolbar will show how many pages you have left to read)

I love this! But, for some reason, it's stuck on pumpkin and the notification number won't go away. Also, whenever I click it, it doesn't send me to MSPA. I think it's broken. ._.

Heya..this extension has served an amazing purpose, and it should continue to do so with homestuck^2. for some reason homestuck^2 (a direct continuation of the candy route (that frequently jumps into the meat timeline) of the..gonna butcher the spelling, epilogues.) isnt connected to the homestuck site directly, but it would still serve a great purpose if the notifyer worked with that to! (since it will be updated over tim just like homestuck and the epilogues.)

Will it be updated so it'll work for Homestuck 2? This would be very useful.
