Overview

Make tab indented code more readable by forcing the tab size to 4 instead of 8

Update: GitHub now has a tab size setting: https://github.blog/changelog/2021-09-21-tab-size-rendering-preference/ By default, in browsers, the tab character takes up 8 spaces in width. This makes tab-indented code hard to read. GitHub could have easily overridden this with a more reasonable number like 4, but they have chosen not to. Hence why this extension exists. It sets the tab width to 4.

It's so simple. I wish github could let me set tab size. Before that, this extension is awesome!

I wish there's an option to change it to 2.
