About this Add-on
This removes the need to grab the mouse and aim for the tiny reply icon. It also has the small side effect that it allows you to reply to your own messages, to possibly reference an earlier post.
Originally, the addon was intended to simply place a highlight on the message you're currently replying to. This feature is still present.
