Summary

This is a fork of the popular chromium extension. You can change the speed of any HTML5 video (ie. youtube, netflix, reddit, twitter, etc), with much more control than websites typically offer.

This fork has mouse-scrolling to change speed - hold shift and use the scroll wheel. This fork also includes unmerged patches to the settings UI which gives it a modern dark theme as well as breaking changes to the settings menu which allow for more fine-grained handling of keyboard input, and some fixes for specific websites such as netflix and reddit.

Because I have seen how backwards compatability left crusty code in the original versions for multiple years while I rewrote large sections of it, I will make no promises about this extension working between versions. A complete reinstall of the extension may be (but probably will not be) required on every update, so I can iterate more quickly and correctly.
