You get annoyed by having to enter your handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?

I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃

It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.

@rugk actually no. my browser fills it in.

so i wouldn't install an additional extension for that.

@rugk the browser (chromium) saves form input and offers to fill it in when you click in a form.

for example, when you have an address form, you click in the name field, select your name that was saved from previous address forms and it fills in all fields with your address. very comfortable :)

@davidak uhh sorry, I did mistake what toot you replied too…

Okay, yes autofill can be a solution, but with the add-on it skips the popup completely, i.e. directly loads the correct site: that is 3 clicks less…

(FIrefox of course can also do autofill.)

@davidak BTW if you are interesting in a chrome/ium port of the add-on feel free to open an issue (or even PR 😜)…

@rugk like i said i never considered it an issue

you could do it for other users if you like or at least create an issue, so they know it would be possible and maybe someone PR

@BalooUriza currently no, however, if you want to suggest/contribute, feel free to open a new issue:

However, it could be that Chrome/ium does not have all the APIs required for this, someone would need to look into this.
