Similar news and inline comment replies

When submitting a story for a piece of news, which site do you link to? Depending on the popularity of the news, many dozens of organizations may have written an article on the topic. Some articles may lack proper grammar/citations or exist behind a paywall. Some sites may have abusive advertisements or frivolous JavaScript usage. You can exclusively use your favorite source, or link to several of the more popular news sites, or simply rely on the user to search for more information.

To help readers find more information, the site will now include a “Similar” button at the bottom right of the story box. Clicking on the link will show you a list of similar news articles to current topic.

Eagle-eyed viewers may have also noticed a new “Inline Reply” option in their profile settings. After a few weeks of limited roll-out, this option is now enabled by default for logged in users. Of course, you should have JavaScript enabled to use this new feature.

Seems you have to enable javascript in your Pipedot preferences, not just in your browser. The major effect I immediately notice is that typing in the comment box gets a little laggy, as does initial display of the comment box itself. Also seems to impact display of comments under the story, as when I enabled JS in my settings, that got laggy too. (The story appears immediately, the comments take about 10 seconds.)

Also, now when I move the cursor with the arrow keys, it vanishes. It's fine if placed with the mouse or moved with the Home or End keys.
