Re: Fascinating stuff..

Chrome normally doesn't have problems handling scripts without installer.

I guess, if you say so, (I swear I wouldn't know since I've always used BCSH to run the scripts I author) but according to the thread linked to above, "scripts installed this way have severe limitations". Granted that thread was posted over a year ago, and granted Chrome has probably had 157 updates since then, so maybe GM/JS scripts direct-installed these days works much better right out of the box. Just curious as to what the problem with your script was, but to read the aforementioned thread the problem is not with your script at all, but with Chrome's native handling of all scripts in general (which was honestly more like what I expected to find). Never tried Tapermonkey, will have to give it a shot. Thanks for your post. :)
