It's always irritated me that you can't collapse individual comments on Verge posts, so I created a Chrome extension for it.

Extension here:

Sometimes when I'm reading comments on stories, I get lost in all the replies to replies to replies, and sometimes have to scroll up a ways to see what someone is replying to. This extension adds a small button to the left of the person's username, which will collapse the post, and any replies to that post. It works both in the comments section of articles posted, and also in the forums.

Hope you guys like it!

One small note: I'm only about 90% satisfied with the appearance of the button. I may release updates in the future to tweak the appearance to make it fit a little better with the appearance of the website.
