why can't you see the current window/viewport size anymore?

I found it really helpful to know what size the window/viewport was at, in addition to the presets

Hello,


You should still be able to see the current window/viewport size.

However, that feature is not enable by default anymore if you're using the Beta version of v2. You can manually enable it only for the current page by clicking on the "Toggle resize tooltip" button, or you can have it display automatically for all tabs if you enable it in the settings dialog.

The default was changed in v2 because people were spooked when an extension that supposedly only resizes their window asked for permission to "read, write and change the data on visited sites". This way, no special permissions are requested unless they're really needed and the users get to see an explanation of why they're needed.


Best Regards,

Ionuț
