      Fantastic talk. I really appreciated how the presenters took us deep, quickly. One hundred thumbs up. Looking forward to running through this again once it's available online.

      The reason why the entire background turned red is that you injected your page into document.body. The element argument for the "processed" event for this page injection would then be document.body, thus painting the document.body background to red. If you were to inject the page into a div for example, then only the div's background would turn red.

      Very good session. I like how the session covered a lot of basic + advance things along with the explanation on why we are doing things in a particular way.
