===== Scripts and Extensions =====
The most common and supported browser is Chrome with Firefox a close second. <br />
If you are using Chrome the scripts are managed by [https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en <u>TamperMonkey</u>]. <br />
you are using Firefox they are managed by [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ greasemonkey/ <u> GreaseMonkey</u>] . <br />
The first one is an extension in Chrome at least, I don't know about Firefox. <br />
WME [[Scripts/WME_Toolbox|<u>Toolbox</u>]]<br />
After Toolbox is installed it will add several things to the WME editor. At the top next to the
Places Icon will be a picture of a toolbox.
If you hover your mouse over it, a menu should open. Select the following options:
also loads a toolbar that is usually at the bottom but it is moveable, place it where you want. Toolbox also shortens the [[Permalink]] or PL, for better usage when requesting down-locks and up-locks. Then refresh your screen by selecting the chain links in the bottom right corner. The chain links also give you the [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYmU6UPCiZs <u>PermaLink</u> ] (PL) info.

====<u>Waze Turn Instructions and When, Why They Occur</u>====
Another thing about the first prompt, if it’s between 1 and ¼ mile to the next turn, it rounds to the nearest quarter mile.
You have 0.79 miles between movement and by the time the 5 or 10 seconds have passed since the previous turn, it’s too late for ¾ mile, so you get the first prompt at half a mile.
That’s a design flaw now so I will see if I can get it fixed.
