Finally, footnotes and other popups on PainScience.com can be dismissed merely by pressing the ESC key on your keyboard, or by even by just clicking/tapping outside the popup.exampleSee? The drudgery of using the popup closure button is more! No more “aiming” at that wee
This is not such a small thing, because there are 7649 footnotes on PainScience.com as of today (seriously). And now you could close all 7.6K of them in an instant! The power! Before, it would have taken about two to three hours of constant clicking. You’re welcome. 😏

Hat tip to reader TC for not just politely griping about this issue, but providing code that helped me get started finally fixing it.
