Lemmy and Kbin are a part of the Fediverse, a network of interconnected social media platforms that work similar to Reddit. This extension is designed to make it easier to use these platforms and make the most of decentralized social media while mimizing the difficulties that may come with it.
For example, you may make an account on "https://lemmy.ca". You may google a community or topic and come across a page on a different instance (ex. "https://lemmy.ml/c/technology"). If you want to subscribe to the community, you will need to copy the code (!email@example.com), open your home instance, and then paste it into the search page. If you want to comment on the post, you will then need to track it down somehow by scrolling through the community.
This extension will let you jump to the version on your home instance (ex. "https://firstname.lastname@example.org"), allowing you to subscribe and participate immediately.
There are many other features as well, and hopefully many more to come! :)
