Widen to fit browser?
Lets the forum content expand width-wise to fit your browser instead of leaving those 'blank' areas on their side of the page. Ideal for those with large and/or wide-screen monitors.

Move the Nav column?
Moves the navigation column from the left to the right, giving the primary content primary focus. Ideal for those with small monitors and low resolutions so you need not scroll left/right to see the main content.

Enable misc tweaks?
Lots of small tweaks, including adding backgrounds to alternating posts, turning links to third-party sites red for easy recognition, correcting minor alignment issues, and more. Recommended.

Hide social stuff?
Hides all social networking/rating aspects, including thumb ratings, Like buttons, Share menus, Staff Pick icons, et cetera. Ideal for those who want a streamlined appearance.

Are you a regular visitor?
Hides reminders regarding forum policies/procedures, tooltips for common buttons/links, et cetera. Ideal for frequent visitors to the CNET forums who want a streamlined appearance.

Hide the ads?
Hides all common advertisements in the forums, and even some of the 'remnants' ABP leaves behind. Please consider leaving the ads alone - they help keep the forums free!
