- support almost all sgf properties (exception: AR - arrows, LN -line, LB - only short labels supported, FG - figure, PM - print move numbers - this feature is handled in the properties of the extension not as SGF property, CA - charset);
- support game collections;
- support children style variations;
- show move numbers (if this option is selected in the preference window);
- show coordinates (if this option is selected in the preference window).

How to use:
- when you need it - start/stop the extension from the Status Bar/Add-on Bar - Firefox 4 Beta;
- always on - if you select Autorun checkbox from the preference window).

How it works:
- at startup Link SGF Viewer scan the web page for links to sgf files (with .sgf extension) and highlight them;
- when user click on highlighted links an overlay div appear where the content of the file will be displayed;
- when it is stopped Link SGF Viewer restores the page to the original state.
