7) ...and many, many more!
If you are using Google Search with this addon installed, please read below:
I tested this add-on for compatibility in viewing documents returned in search results of Yahoo, Bing and Google (http and https). Its works fine for search results of the first 2 search sites. This add-on's feature is disabled on Google Search results pages by default, since it leads to broken links. Please use the "Quick View" option under the link of a document in the search results, to view the documents online (for Google Search website).
Please let me know, if you encounter any sites whose documents do not render well with this add-on...
(One reason for this could be that, the site requires cookies/login to the view the site documents.)
This issue has been fixed through this version of the add-on. You should now be able to view the latest version of the online document. (Thanks Przemek for your suggestion.)
