Wish I didn't have to turn off the Optimization but once that is done it works flawlessly.

有时候不好用,需要先取消“Open pop-ups as a new tabs (Edge extensions are not blocked)”,再重新勾上才起作用。怀疑是网页上的脚本错误中断了脚本执行。既然常常需要这样的操作,建议加个按钮,一键取消→重新勾选,之间可能需要加几百毫秒延迟。

Works great, AFTER disabling the "Improve your PC Gaming Experience with Efficiency Mode" setting in Edge. Go to Settings-->System & Performance. If you don't take that step the extension will get disabled every time you close and reopen Edge.
