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!

The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...
Another week, another recap. The Sunday tradition marches on this week with a fresh no-nonsense look at big-picture news. Here in the digital XDA writers’ room, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal’s front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following...
Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
