Browser extension that simplifies the GitHub interface and adds useful features

We use GitHub a lot and notice many annoyances we'd like to fix. So here be dragons.

Our hope is that GitHub will notice and implement some of these much needed improvements. So if you like any of these improvements, please email GitHub support about doing it.

GitHub Enterprise is also supported. More info in the options.


The Chrome version also works in Opera (using this) and Edge.

Fixes for GitHub shortcomings

Previously part of Refined GitHub

GitHub implemented dozens of features that used to be part of Refined GitHub 🎉

See list


Most features can be disabled if they are JavaScript-based (Experimental) and you can override our CSS with your own in the extension options.

We're happy to receive suggestions and contributions, but be aware this is a highly opinionated project. There's a high bar for adding features. Users will always disagree with something. That being said, we're open to discussing things.
