This extension does not work on Youtube. The only reason I installed this is because Youtube textarea goes back to previous page when I am just trying to select a word with alt-left arrow that works on every site but Youtube.

Can't get it to work. Doesn't seem to be sending anything to the edit-server. Edit server is running because I can browse to edit-server which returns: "Server is up and running. To use it, issue a POST request with the file to edit as the content body." Have altered for mvim and no authentication. When running in Terminal with --verbose, I see some output when contacting it via web browser but no output when trying to invoke TextAid in a text area. Have tried setting ... Show more
