    Change Log:

    Fixed a bug reported by davv, that turned IPB forum topic list into a mess (actually, the problems were inevitable when you had TD element with onclick handler).

Reviews

  1. davv says:

    this thing is awesome, great job !
    but it completely ruins the layouf of IPB forums (topic list page)

    could you please investigate this ?

  2. akovalenko says:

    It should be fixed now (technical info: the problem was caused by TD elements with onclick handle)

  3. davv says:

    works perfectly now, thanks !

    5 stars :)

  4. ak says:

    very annoying. anyway to get this to work when in ‘quite’ mode?

    thanks !!

  5. My computer is working really slow, I was thinking about finding some help. I really dont know what I am doing, has anyone here tried [url=http://boston.citysearch.com/profile/43812963/boston_ma/geek_choice.html]geek choice [/url]? A friend said they might be good. I also found [url=http://www.advantagecomputersol.com/]these guys[/url], but their website does not look good to me.

    I just need some company who can fix this thing.

    Every time I startup my IE it takes nearly 7 minutes to display on screen :(

    I have also been hearing a random clicking sound inside the system itself. What does this mean?

  6. ariel says:

    Love this! I hear a tone every time I press Alt-G though. Any way of disabling that?

  7. Jesse says:

    Really nice plugin, thanks! Is there any way to change the key though?
    And also a suggestion, i’m using the LoL plugin for firefox which enables the hints while holding the spacebar. I find this more convenient than a toggle.

    Keep up the good work!

    X Jesse

  8. akovalenko says:

    Annoying “ding” sound should be fixed, as of 0.5.13

  9. Andrew says:

    Is there a way to always show the numeric hints, instead of having to press ALT+G ?

  10. AkhIL says:

    in manifest:
    - “matches”: [ "http://*/*", "https://*/*", "file:///*"]
    + “matches”: [ "http://*/*", "https://*/*", "file:///*", "ftp://*/*" ]
    and please make styles of num boxes and tips tagged with “!important”,

    Thank you!

  11. alzer says:

    Great plug-in, but anyway of configuring the hotkey? Alt G conflicts with other shortcuts I have configured. For future development it would be nice to be able to configure what keys are used for shortcuts, so that you could use letters instead of numbers (as in mouseless browsing plugin for firefox)

  12. Andrew says:

    Nice plugin! However, I’m a bit disturbed by the permissions, which Chrome says give this extension access to private data and my computer. Is this really necessary?

  13. Eric Ridgeway says:

    Needs options:
    -Change show/hide shortcut
    -Ability to default it to always show numbers!

  14. Alexandre says:

    Needs some options :
    - Possibility to choose which keys for shortcuts not only number. I prefer to set letter on my home row to be quicker (what I do with Mouseless Extentions on Firefox), very important
    - Show by default shortcuts (just an option), very important
    - Exclude some site with a regex when they are to many links (like jira issue tracker), not very important

    See Mouseless firefox extention for more options to implement.

  15. Stephen Breen says:

    Please get rid of the “ding” sound. I’ve updated to the latest version and am running windows 7.

    Other then that it’s great, made me switch Chrome to default brower.

  16. xbit says:

    I’m also hearing the “ding” sound with 0.5.13 on windows 7. Also, please make the hot key (Alt-G) user definable as well as the shortcut keys. I like to have only home row keys enabled for this, coming from mouseless browsing extension on firefox.

    Still, this is the only extension like this currently available for chrome. Thanks!

  17. Jens says:

    great extention love it.

    i also would be happy if it was possible to deaktive the ding sound.

  18. Ivaylo says:

    This is really nice, but i have a few proposals: Why don’t you use the alphabet as well to label links – that way one will be able to click a link with no more then 2 symbols in most cases.
    Another problem is that sometimes links are not recognized – not a single link on gmail page.
    Also the show by default links option that Alexandre proposes is a good idea.

  19. Ivaylo says:

    * edit taking back my claim about the gmail page – seems I have done something wrong

  20. Summer L says:

    I have the ‘ding’ sound as well. I’m also running windows 7. It isn’t on all sites just certain ones. And the sound isn’t associated with the websites.

  21. Bruce Mangee says:

    Is this extension still under developement?

    Two notes from me …
    First, sometimes the pictures overlays the numbers
    Second, please make a toggle with alt+g (or another shortcut), so that you don’t have to hit alt+g everytime after you followed a link.

    thanks for your extension

  22. John says:

    This is great. Now I can switch over from firefox.

    One thing I would love is to be able to leave the numbers showing all the time, rather than having to type Alt+g over and over again.

  23. Tremulous Tetra says:

    excellent product.

    For those complaining about the ding sound, in the meantime while this is being deleted, this is a standard Windows 7 sound, which you could change to a less irritating sound if you wished.

    By going to Control Panel/change system sounds/default beep. You can change either the default beep, change to a different scheme, or have no sounds whatsoever.
