We found two YouTube chat CPU bugs, which this extension provides a temporary fix for:
1) Runs at 100%+ CPU when many chatters.
2) Runs at 100%+ CPU after posting a message and "slow mode" is on in the chat. There is some sort of timer event which forces CPU usage to rise sharply.
These bugs are fixed as follows:
Bug 1) The HTML div element containing the chat messages is hidden using CSS ("display:none;").
Bug 2) The "Send" button with circular timer is removed from the page on page load.
