The xkcd Alt Text Extension Takes Half the Fun Out of Reading xkcd

By Lowell Heddings on September 6th, 2010

If you didn’t already know that hovering your mouse over any xkcd comic will show you some funny alternate text about the image, you are officially living under a rock.

The xkcd Alt Text extension for Google Chrome moves the alt text right below the image so you don’t have to hover your mouse to read it. Personally I think this ruins half of the fun of reading and finding the hidden text, but if you’d prefer it, here you are.

Also, xkcd is great.
