This script applies to StackExchange sites stackoverflow.com, stackexchange.com, superuser.com, etc.
The timezone that the StackExchange sites use is UTC i.e. +0000 (source)
So, this script converts the dates to your local timezone, in both:
2015-12-14 14:11:13Z, and in
- date text like
Dec 14 at 14:11.
It also recalculates them whenever the page changes.
Also note: `jsTimezoneDetect` does not do geo-location, nor does it care very much about historical time zones.
e.g. it may get "Europe/Berlin" when the user is in fact in "Europe/Stockholm" (they are both identical in modern time).
- While you are on the superuser.com homepage, every 1 minute the activity indicator which will show when new posts are asked or answered.
Also, every relative timestamp, e.g.
answered 1 min ago will become
answered 2 min ago, and so on.
Well, while using the script, the latter feature, i.e. "the relative timestamps being increased every 1 min" becomes broken, and they don't get updated anymore.
- if you reopen Firefox e.g. stackexchange.com, then session restore uses the timestamps for the tooltips from cache, so the script uses these cached values (refreshing the page (F5) fixes the issue).*
