Sick of your boss looking over your shoulder?

Hi there, I am a developer from Slovakia working on this in my free time, which I don’t have much.
Please donate to support my computer, which needs lots of electricity, good internet connection, some shelter and chocolate, so I will be able and motivated to maintain this extension in the future, if Facebook unexpectedly updates its pages.  Thank you very much for your help and feel free to leave a suggestion! 
While PayPal's fee for every donation is quite high, please donate at least 0.50 $/€

Your donation will support and motivate me in further development.
-> fixing when FB upgrades its pages
-> extending about another versions of outlook visuals
-> implementing of another useful apps for the office similar to this one.

Donations will force me to dedicate my free time for next development.
I got this idea of making people’s life in the office easier in my previous work, where my boss was not a very pleasant person.
Please show me your interest in my extension and support - so I will have a great excuse to stay home and code peacfully :)

Extra notes:

Implements visual of Outlook 2010 email client. For a better experience use full screen mode (key F11).
To create a new conversation click onto the area above 'New E-mail' icon.
To turn extension on/off click onto the extension icon in the browser toolbar, which opens a popup window containing turn on/off option. This setting is not synchronized accross devices so you can have it turned on in the office and turned off at home.

Purpose of Discreet invisible messenger extension is to resemble outlook email client, when looking on a screen from a distance and display all FB messenger items less visible.
For implementation I used mainly CSS and little bit of JavaScript.
Privacy: This extension doesn't store or access any personal data, it just modifies the appearance of Facebook messenger web page.

Be discreet. Be social. Enjoy !
