The starve.io extension is a 3rd-party minor-modification browser extension that enhances gameplay by adding useful features that the game does not have. This is developed by Tjstretchalot on reddit. This was initially released as an Auto-Book Firefox extension on May 31, 2017, and now have been updated multiple times to include the features below. This extension is available for Google Chrome on the Chrome Store or for Firefox.
