    Tight doesn't use any JavaScript and doesn't interact with Slack in any way. It is purely CSS that impacts the styling you see in the browser with the extension installed.

    I used to use the mac app as well, but it isn't possible to modify. You should give the web app a shot with Tight. I've been using it for over a month now and I don't miss the mac app at all.

    Tight is a Chrome extension I built that increases readability, removes many redundant/useless buttons, improves the page layout and modernizes the overall style of Slack.

    It is open source to encourage community contribution. Suggestions and pull requests are highly encouraged!

    I'm glad you like it!

    The major difference from Pinboard is the very polished and visual UI. Neat also has it's own iOS app and Chrome/Safari extensions (assuring consistent quality and design across platforms) unlike Pinboard.

    Neat is currently free while in beta. It will be a paid product with some sort of trial for the public launch. See my comment above with regards to us not selling customer data.

    Something else worth noting is that you can import your pocket links into Neat and see for yourself if the search and previews are better:

    Import from Pocket, Instapaper, Pinboard and more

    Hey Cory,

    I was also a heavy user of Pocket before building Neat. Here are a few things that Neat does better than Pocket:

    • Search: Neat has a very powerful search, it searches the whole contents of the pages, has an excellent ranking algorithm, synonym detection and typo tolerance. I find it good enough that I no longer need to use tags to help me find stuff later.

    • Content type support: Pocket works great for previewing articles and some videos, but really falls apart when you save other types like songs, recipes, websites, repositories, wikis, etc. Neat gives you a great preview for almost everything on the web.

    • Collaboration: Neat allows you to collaboratively save links to a collection with other people. It's far more natural for sharing something like a collection of recipes with friends than Pocket's sharing.

    Something else worth noting is that Neat is going to be a paid product that will be much cheaper than Pocket pro. This allows us to focus on building the best possible product for our users, instead of building user facing features to extract more demographic data from our users. We are also committed to the privacy of our users' data. What you choose to save is your business, not ours and definitely not advertisers or other third parties.

    Hey Julian, thanks for the feedback. We are currently working on download to PDF, it should be done in the next week or so. Check back over the next few weeks because we plan to add a lot of functionality based on early user feedback.

    Sounds good, thanks for the info. We fixed the issue, so you should be able to publish after importing now. If you remove the 'hasVisited' flag from the localstorage and reload the page you should get the linkedin import modal again.

    Hey Gareth, thanks for the feedback and detailed bug report. What information would you need to include for each published article?
