InteractiveFics is designed to improve your online story reading experience of second-person "interactive fiction", popular on tumblr, that most commonly uses some variation of "Y/N" to indicate where your character's name should go.

If you use this extension, you can enter whatever value you want into it and it will change "Y/N" (and its derivatives, or a special expression if the writer uses another thing to abbreviate the part where the name goes) into that value on all webpages. You can also replace other, unrelated words and expressions to whatever you like.

Update version 5.2.4 adds new features:

  • Get the entire content of the website
  • Edit content
  • Share content on social networks: Twitter, LinkedIn and post to Facebook using facebook's api just one click.

Great extension. It would be cool if you added a whitelist option instead because this extension is very laggy on most websites.
