Good tool, hope it continues to get developed and expanded to detail leanings of specific authors and such.

I wish I knew about this earlier. Perfect tool in today's world.

Its a great addon for getting the bias check when reading articles or news. My one issue with it is that the addon is an overlay on top of the website instead of pushing the site content down and it being above it in the top row. Currently there are often site buttons obstructed by the overlay which means I have to close the addon to use the website properly. It would be nice if it didnt cover the buttons but instead moved the website down so the buttons at the top of sites are right under the addon itself.
