More About Poonvis

Urgent update (20131030):

There is major changes on Google Hangout Interface and it breaks how Poonvis and Hangout works, please disable the extension now for the new Hangout to work.

A update version is being developed.



This is an extension for the Google+ Hangout, it will "Swap" the preview panel from the bottom of the screen to the top.

The extension is named in honor of the other extension called Rob Potvis Hangout.

Special thanks to Alexander Safonov and Tom Voute@ATG for everything about this extension.

A bit of extra if you do not see Poonvis working after extension updates, sometimes when Google changes something in G+ hangout pages, certain resources seems to be cached in browser which make Poonvis not working, long story short, please try CTRL+F5 for deep refresh your browser and you should be able to see Poonvis working.. (thanks Tom@ATG)

It has been a while for the minor layout changing on G+Hangout, version 0.1.0 has been completely rewritten to work with these changes, it has been tested to work and better support any minor changes, please feel free to report if you find any problem or error.
Same as 0.0.8

Same as 0.0.5, another layout change. :)
Google changed the site a bit, now Poonvis works again.
A work-around for the new layout changes for Hangout, auto chat enable has "finally" been added by Google, yeah (so we skip it)
Thanks Tom for the suggestion, added handle if user were suspended or kicked a Hangout, Poonvis do not auto swap and pop chat windows again (it was only doing it once).
Somethings seems to be changed on G+ Hangout layouts which stop the swap to work, fixed. (Is Google thinking of adding this basic function? XD)
Original releases.
