There are some big lag improvements on the Firefox version stemming from in-Flash downscaling and modern canvas hardware acceleration. The Chrome bug that keeps this from working in Pepperflash affects Opera as well, so Firefox is the only browser that can take advantage of this right now.

If you use Firefox and want to play around with it, here it is.

Firefox, the best browser ever, after trying the updated mtf I can confirm it works slightly better than earlier versions of the script, but at a cost of visuals...

Morningpee, can you add an option to turn off the automatic-scaling? After years of playing it at the normal size it's super disconcerting.

Yeah adding that option would be great, full screen makes the game be at a terrible scale and adjusting the window size seems to introduce lag.

Context: The Chrome extension was updated yesterday.

There were other complains about bugs as well, so the update is totally reverted for now.

Minimal Tetris Friends 4.2.7 is released.

Features:
• Added support for Marathon and Survival modes
• Automatic scaling if you make the window smaller (removes a lot of lag). If you make the window larger, the game stays the same size.
• Ground-up rewrite of MTF. Using an ad blocker is no longer necessary.
• Safari and Microsoft Edge are now included in the instructions.

Download for Chrome

Since some months, I used the Minimal Tetris Friends extension for Chrome (not the Tampermonkey version) and it worked well. I encountered some issues after the update though. Somehow, I got ranked down to rank 1. Probably, not related to MTF, but this had some weird consequences: When I was in bronze and silver ranks and used MTF, it told me I was rank 1 (500 points), ignored my tunings (DAS/ARR) and didn't show any score/win screens (lines sent & win counter). I deactived MTF and ranked up to platinum again and those issues were fixed (forgot to check gold). However, I still can't leave any room (clicking the Exit Now button does nothing).

Is there a way to use the old version, maybe as Tampermonkey script?

Thanks for this, and you are not the only one who has reported this problem. I updated all of the browser extensions to just copy the flash movie from Tetris Friends into MTF, and to let all the Tetris Friends scripts load before starting MTF (the way it used to be). Here it is for Chrome.

If the above doesn't work for you, this old version of the userscript exists.

As a side note, MTF now support replays for single-player modes. If you top out or finish a game, the replay will be shown after a few seconds.

Checked with a user who had Okey_Dokey's problem. The latest version (4.5.​8) fixes it.

Now I don't want to sound like I'm complaining too much about a good thing, but instead of the error message that pops up when you're on a firefox/chrome browser that has Flash disabled by default, could you have MTF access that the popup that changes "this site" to allow Flash to run instead of crashing the browser? It'd be nice to just go to tetrisfriends.com and have it work rather than disable the add-on, enable Flash, enable MTF, and then be able to play.
