What’s new in version 1.7.1?

                /// Usage & Hotkeys ///

1. Ctrl (or Shift for block mode*) + mouse over image to load image fully.
2. Ctrl+Space to On/Off extension for opened Site.

* The block mode is loading all images included to element. Also try block mode when  image is not loaded fully when Ctrl used.

The extension is remember settings(on/off, image max size, image bg) for visited sites while browser is not restarted. So, if you open several tabs with the same site(for example "foo.com") and change settings on the one tab then changes will be applied to all tabs with "foo.com" site.

/// Usage on Android smartphones ///

You can use this extension on the mobile Yandex Browser. The Yandex Browser is compatible with Chrome extensions and you can install it with Play Market.

/// Recommendations ///

Don't forget to set default image max.size in the Options of the extension.

If you want to see only small images(like icons) but cut off the big then set image max.size between 1K-5K.

/// Known issues ///

1.On some sites the image fully loading(Ctrl + Mouseover) not working well. It depends on how site was built. I have fixed many issues but I guess that is not all.
2.On some sites a limitation of the image size is not working. Images loads fully. It happens when a server ignores specific parameter in the request.

Хорошее расширение! Единственное замечание: как я понял, расширение (в некоторых случаях, и которые в 99% не должны случаться) отправляет данные через API https://images.weserv.nl/?url= , чем снижает приватность пользователя. Сервис имеет открытые исходники на github, и тем не менее, неплохо бы добавить опцию отключения. Это API, насколько я правильно понял, используется при нажатии на Ctrl и клике на картинку, чтобы сжать через этот сервис и загрузить облегченную версию картинки, пожатую в base64. UPD: Это происходит только если картинка по какой-либо причине не загрузилась (ошибка), чтобы подгрузить через стороннее API, как fallback. (Но я бы всё же вывел это в опцию) ==== Очень элегантно придумано: отлавливать картинки по Content-Length на этапе получения заголовков. Магия! ==== Nice extension! The only note: as I understand, the extension sends data (in rare cases, which in 99% must not occur) via the API https://images.weserv.nl/?url=, which reduces the end user's privacy. This service is open sourced on github, but nevertheless, it would be nice to add a "disable" option. As far as I understand, this API activated only when pressing "Ctrl" and clicking on a pic, and original image is faield to load (so it loads a lighter version of the image, in base64 format) ** This happens only if an img has not been loaded for whatever reason (an error occured), so it tries to load it from external API (sources are open), as a fallback. But I'd rather offered this through an option.
