- by Steve Turner, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5It works as claimed, but I had to disable it because it caused significant performance problems with regular browsing activity. Simple scrolling operations on commonly-used web pages (e.g., Facebook) became annoyingly sluggish.
Edit per developer reply: Yes, turning off "Show Number of Visits In Browser Icon" helps quite a bit. I also turned off "Log Total Number Of History Deleted", which seems to help a bit too, but perhaps not as much. I still detect some minor loss of scrolling performance, but overall it's much better. Thanks.
Edit 2: Something else I've noticed: Removing the history for a link causes the browser's read/unread highlighting for that link to show as "unread". I'm curious if that's even something that can be addressed...
Developer responseposted 4 years agoGo to settings and turn off "Show Number of Visits In Browser Icon" and see if that helps. If that helps, then perhaps I need to disable that setting by default on install.
Edit 1: "Removing the history for a link causes the browser's read/unread highlighting for that link to show as "unread"". I think that the browser uses the history to determine whether a link is unread or not, so if you delete the history, the link will show as unread.
Also this extension works best with e10s enabled which would probably solve your scrolling issue.
