Could this be added as an option for mobile GAF? That savings would be really nice on the phone

This image is both a test and my reaction to this extension. Thank you OP!

Wonderful! Any chance of Opera support?
I deleted Firefox and Chrome a while ago.

Seems to be significant downgrade in the video's quality while viewing it on the forum vs opening the video in a new tab. Obviously the top image is larger and therefore will look worse, but this seems like the difference between HD and SD.

Thankyou Popstar, this is a awesome extension.

Pity it won't work for IOS, GAF can be really tough on my 4G cap.

Yeah it's awful. Can't even do it with an about:config value anymore.

You can if you use the Developer version. However things are more prone to breaking randomly (though it's not too bad, just the odd bug once every so often). I switched to it a while ago as I needed some unmaintained addons to function.

Oh yeah, and much cooler icons:

Excellent work OP. Was hoping this extension would be made someday, one of the only reasons I have RES installed.

if only this would work on ios because that is where it is sorely needed. Not so much on my laptop. Excellent work of course.

This is awesome. Could you walk me through your code to explain how you got this working? I know javascript but I've never messed with browser extensions before.

THank you OP. Using it on Chrome

Any chance you'll make a Safari extension as well?

This is great code too btw. Good notes and with the console window open on neogaf I can see exactly what's going on.

Good job man.
