The options/ Drop down menu for the option screen is so small i can barely read it. Please make it bigger or it will get a lower rating then 5 stars. I gave it 5 because i really like it, its just the font size in Options that i don't like.

It is now easy as pie to watch video links left in comments on YouTube. With the deprecation of the video response feature this addon is more useful than ever. This is one of the most useful browser addons I have come across in years. It fills a particular niche made bare by Google. Well designed with flawless operation. It even supports searching entire channels for video watch links left in the comments of all videos posted by the channel user. If you love, or just like watching videos on YouTube this is a must have addon.

hey, i've been working on browser and server software for indexing youtube channels with the idea of supporting all kinds of sites and including blogs. I have a javascript library that scans youtube users' latest vids and comment to those vids, and stores what it finds locally in the browser's indexedDB. fred convinced me a plugin is a way to go for making these reply features rather than a whole site. It's great you put it up and it looks very nice. I'd like to see it grow into a general tool providing all sorts of structure-providing features. e.g. I would like to add a "subscribe" feature which put the user in a list that could be scanned for the reply codes you already support. For a long time since I've been scanning comments from the server and the client I've thought it would be useful to have a simple code language and you could have this sort of thing allow replies from blogs and videos at other sites, etc. is it possible to contribute, it is open source? for now I'd like a complete set of youtube compatible examples of this general concept. cheers.
