Seriously, where have I been not realising this was around and could do all the neat things I wanted done to specifically alter web pages.....

One of my little tasks finding counterfeit websites has just been improved about 10 times faster.....just thinking about all those crappy hours spent copying/pasting and clicking into new browser windows until my hands cramped up....urgh

I loaded it but haven't had time to do much with it, my first goal is to kill auto-refresh on several sites I visit. They like it because it bumps up their ad revenue and page-view count.
I am not a Firetrust employee just a MW user.

I do a lot of Reverse IP lookups on DomainTools, but all the sites that get returned are linked to DomainTools pages, I would have to copy-paste URLs to see the site, now that I've rewritten it so those URLs take me straight to the page.....makes life much simpler :)

I installed it because some other extension required it. I've never used it for anything else.
