Hide the ***** footer on Medium.com posts!!

I'm a big fan of the Medium publishing platform, but hate the way that it (and its various offshoots) display a fixed footer bar.   You know, the one that says "never miss an update from [whoever]", and that has a *Get Updates* button on it?    Yeah, guys, I've got that now.  So can I please close the darned thing and get some of my screen real estate back?  It seems not; Medium doesn't give you a way of doing that.


Add Footer Close Button Extension

So, I put together the Add Footer Close Button extension for Google Chrome.  It adds a button that hides that footer bar whenever it detects one.  That's all it does.  There's no options.

It currently works on medium.com itself, and also hackernoon.com.  I'll add more offshoot sites as I come across them.  (It's just a matter of updating a permissions file.)
