Update v0.9.6: Reverted back a previous change to fix the status message box. (2015-09-17)
This extension is mainly a styling script for your Google Contacts page (accessible at https://www.google.com/contacts/). It changes various dimensions to make visual elements closer together, in a similar fashion to the "Compact" density setting available on the web interface of Gmail. It mostly affect the height of elements, so you will have more contacts displayed in your browser window than you usually have (a bit less than twice as much). Please refer to the screenshots to preview the effects of this extension.
Upon installation, if you have tabs of the Google Contacts page open, you may need to refresh each of them for the extension to take effect. If you deactivate or uninstall this extension later on, you also will have to refresh tabs of the Google Contacts page to reset the density to default settings.
This extension might cease to function at any time, for example if Google makes changes to the Google Contacts page, as there are no documented way or public API to safely change the density of the Google Contacts page.
This extension might interfere with any already-installed extension also modifying the styling of the Google Contacts page. If a conflict arises, you way choose to either uninstall this extension to restore proper functionality or make a choice on which extension you wish to keep and deactivate or uninstall other conflicting extensions.
The script will not work for, and should not interfere with the proposed new version of Google Contacts (referred to as "Contacts preview"), as this new version is accessible through a different web address.
