I tried it quickly in Chrome, but if fails for me. Possibly it clashes with some other gadgets or such I have, but what happened is that on talk pages I couldn't find the signature button (I don't know where it is hidden in the Visual Editor menu). Also, it disabled the synatax highleter I find very helpful for code editing. So I am not sure what this is supposed to do better - I use visual editor sometimes, but at the very least this shouldn't cripple code editing and hide signature buttons.

Fails for me
The "Your signature" button appears under the "Insert" drop-down menu, and the "Syntax highlighting" button appears under the Menu icon (three horizontal lines) drop-down menu.
The Visual Editor suffers from the same drop-down menu scavenger hunt issue found in other WYSIWYG editors. The developers might want to rearrange things more intuitively and give greater prominence to the signature button on talk pages.
