Thus far it functions exactly as advertised. However, I would like for the following additions: Give the settings menu a section with the regular menu copied directly and other sections for the other settings. Update the UI to match either Twitch's overall design or Chrome's/Edge's. This extension having its own style is distracting and detracts from the enjoyability of using it.
