Note on maps:
Stadia and Thunderforest maps are included as options but these require API keys. Since I’m not exactly raking in donations for this code, I’m not willing to pony up for everyone else to use these. If I ever get enough income from this, I’ll provide the API keys.

However, you can sign up for personal/hobby use API keys on their websites ( and and enter your key in the extension menu.


Major props to Tomáš Janoušek for his map switcher code located here:
This code is included in heavily modified form, but it taught me all kinds of cool techniques for injecting code into the page. Copyright notices for included code can be found in the app by clicking the Copyrights button in the Str*Viewer menu.
