This is a bit of a wall of text, so I'll toss this in for people who don't feel like reading:
3 new things:
1) You can now use this in Safari. There might be a few small styling things that need to get fixed still, but it otherwise should be the same as the Chrome version.
2) Since I started making this, the delay from rendering on the /blogs page has annoyed me. To counteract that somewhat I added "no reload refreshing" (default on new installs, or you can turn this on in the 2nd tab of the options or just click "reset defaults" and that will take care of it for you). When its on, the blogs will update without the page loading if you:
use the auto-refresh timer
navigate to another page of the blogs
switch to a different blog section
use one of the filters (eg, only watched)
It will look something like this when its loading a new page, which should just take a couple seconds:
This also works best having links automatically open in new tabs, so that is turned on by default, but can also be turned off in the 2nd options tab.
edit 8/1: this also works on the pages for the actual blog, as well as having a minor overhaul of the page navigation. Useful for when you're on a page that references a comment on another without dealing with tabs or having to leave the current page.
3) I also figured that theres as RSS feed of people's blogs that I might as well take advantage of, so if you click on the magnifying glass to the right of the user's name, it should show you the contents of the post. I say should because 1) for some people, not all of their blogs like to show up for whatever reason and 2) its limited to the last 10 blogs a person has made, so old blogs probably won't work. Its pretty handy for a quick view to see what a new blog is about.
In lieu of the old wall of text, heres a list of features for anyone seeing this for the first time:
Updated blog layout (current form expands on what the default will be in the future)
No /blogs or /profile blogs refreshing (see above)
Automatically refresh the /blogs page (every 5/10/20 minutes)
Ability to ignore blogs -- useful for "promote your design" blogs
' Favorite' users -- just adds a star next to their name so they stand out a bit more
Comment preview to make sure everything looks right before you post it.
Quick formatting buttons for comment (sort of like the defaults, but better)
Quick post comments to post without the page refreshing
Emulate powerscore on regular voting pages -- lets you vote with the 0-6 buttons if that suits your fancy
Commenting button in /powerscore (beneath the voting boxes) to be able to comment without leaving the page. This shouldn't be necessary for much longer, but until the normal way is fixed, I'll keep this in here.
Alternate search form that remembers its state between pages.
Get rid of some of the page clutter from banners/social media
I suppose a link to the download would also be nice: get it here
