Good reasons to install the Usability Booster
Standard tasks for every AdWords optimizer can be done faster and more comfortable.
You can change the keyword match type of all new keywords with a single click - including modified broad match. (screenshot)
You can edit new keywords faster and more comfortable.
Many fields are wider so the whole content becomes visible.
Coloured tables improves the clearness. Every colour convey a meaning. (optional)
Less eye movement by mouse over tooltips.
Less mouse movement because you can select and unselect a checkbox at the left side of a table by clicking anywhere in the row.
If a page in the AdWords interface is opened with the installed Usability Booster, the script is automatically active. Currently the script expands some CSS definitions in the <head> area in order to enlarge specific input fields. The Usability Booster enables Alt/Ctrl clicks on words in text input fields as well.
