    When players are online, they may be also doing other things like surfing. A popup to make next move will definitely help smooth and timely continuation of games.

    As long as there's a way to turn it off I have no problem with this.

    Agreed!
    First thing I'd do is turn it off.

    I would like a firefox extension showing in the status bar when I have
    a move to make. Does anyone know if such an extension already exist or
    not?

    It's part of Oroboris' Greasemonkey tools, bottom right mine is telling me 5 games waiting. Do you have all the tools?

    Ragnorak used to have a link in profile or next to his name in forums. Greasemonkey required.

    Imagine being one of these players who plays several hundred games at once - their pop ups would take over their computer.

    Bottom right '56 games waiting' is worrying enough

    Which one of all the scripts?

    I installed the one that promised to display number of games waiting, but I
    see no new information in my firefox window. Do I have to install them all?

    You want the extension - the scripts do cool stuff, but it's the extension that gives the "game waiting" count in the browser status bar.

    I just lost what hair I had left over here. So I try to install, get the
    message to login because it's an experimental and all that. I login, try
    to install, get the message that the file can't be installed because:
    Invalid file hash (possible download corruption). I follow the usual
    procedure of clearing the cache and reloading the page, but still get the
    same message. I attempt to save the link to my local computer, but get
    a login page instead. I move the link to an empty document and try to
    save the link from there, but get a login page instead.

    MOTHER*SKJ"#(!)!)(=¤##¤/(#/¤(/#(/#!!!!!!!

    Oh, well. It wasn't meant to be I suppose.

    I could easily install it when I logged in to the administrator account
    (which I never do so that installation is perfectly useless to me), but I
    can't install this extension from my normal user account.



    Uhm, I think I'm gonna have to hold back a little on those positive
    reviews, if you don't mind.

    Thanks for the tip though. Maybe in the future it will work better, or if I
    have the time I can sit down and really figure out what's wrong and do
    something about it.

    Ti-hi! Oooor, I can switch user to the administrator account, copy the
    installed RHP extension from that firefox profile to my normal user
    account's firefox profile, logout, log back in to my normal user account,
    restart firefox and ta-taaa!..
