Colorizing the the usernames of original commenters within a Reddit comment thread.
This Chromium extension will color the original commenter's subsequent posts within his comment thread. This is useful to increase readability, and to decrease scrolling. Currently it uses the color purple, but I will add functionality for customizing that soon.
An original comment is a comment at the bottom-most level of the comments page of a Reddit post, and so an original commenter is the author of one such comment. Each comment has the potential to create a comment thread, and sometimes these threads get very long. I read a LOT of Reddit comment threads, and so keeping track of the author who started the particular comment branch that I happen to be reading at the time is difficult. The only way to really know who originally started the conversation that you're reading about is to remember, or scroll back up . . . and those methods are not ideal. This plugin will solve the problem entirely!
