Unofficial XDA Toolbar Released!
Just a few short days ago, we covered a wonderful browser plugin that gets rid of certain annoyingly-long forum signatures. Now, XDA Recognized Developer Archer‘s baby grew up into a full toolbar, allowing us to tailor the XDA experience to our liking.
This version adds a plethora of new features, all conveniently accessible in a new floating toolbar. The new option to limit image sizes for easier scrolling is particularly useful for the various image-heavy threads scattered across XDA. Like its previous iteration, you can block any user’s signature with just two clicks of the mouse—only now, an icon distinguishes users you deem unworthy.
Converted to toolbar.
Added hide/display all signatures, as well as toggle selected.
Hidden signatures are indicated next to user name.
Added thread options – minimize all posts, maximize all posts, maximum image size (200, 300, 400px or original size).
Small images can be toggled original/small.
If you’re looking to get a little frisky with your Chrome plugins, continue on to the original thread.
Thanks once again to MTM for the tip!

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
