Hover Cards for Quora.
Hover cards for Quora. Hover over a user name link for 1 second and get a hover card displaying the user's information.
** Disclaimer **
Since Quora does not yet have an API for requesting user information, Horcrux relies on AJAX request on the user's profile page to fetch the information. There are optimizations in place, like caching in background page (to make info once fetched available for the lifetime of the browser), and on-demand request (instead of look-ahead caching as in v1). However, if you are too concerned and paranoid about bandwidth, you should re-consider installing it.
Clearing the background cache after 20 objects to save memory. Peak memory consumption may still reach around 50 MB.
Performance bugs fixed - Moved cache to background page to be available for all tabs at one place, instead of re-constructing in each tab. On-demand request of info instead of look-ahead. Quora spinner ( ^_^ )
Fixed the bug that gave wrong information for users with non-ASCII characters in their names.
Added the follow button and one-line description of the user.
Hover card shows user's name and count for following, followers, topics and boards, apart from the display pic
