Will be there an update for the "Hide my owned games" feature in the shop?

Hi. I've been rather scarce on GOG for the last couple of months; sorry about that, sometimes other aspects of life demand one's attention. I have been planning do do a major overhaul of Barefoot Essentials and bump it to version 3. In that regard, GOG's timing has been excellent, as they made big changes to the site just as I was starting, Hopefully after a couple of weeks I'll have a nice shiny new version to show you that works with the all new design changes that GOG released for their 10th anniversary. I also want to finally get everything done from my list of feature-suggestions-people-have-given-me-but-I-haven't-implemented-yet, get to the bottom of those compatibility problems some of you have been reporting lately and have one new feature that I've been wanting to add for years - custom forum themes :)
I'm new the the whole userscript & barefoot essential's scene, and only got started today. (Firefox, Greasemonkey extension etc)
One thing I've noticed with the forum, under extremely slow internet connection speed, that one thing that makes navigating the forum slower than it could be is the nasty habit that on loading each page, gog insists on DLing a new copy of the fonts.

Is there a script available that DLs a static version of the font to use on the forums that doesn't "expire"? This minute change could squeeze a little faster performance out of forum navigation.

EDIT: Scrub that, it might be a loading timeout causing the problem. Sometimes the dev tools console doesn't report partial content properly.

No need to apologise, it goes without saying that life in the physical world always comes first.

I've got a couple of big favours to ask, if it's possible of course, which I hope make it into BE v.3.0. Please, please, with cherry on top, give us an option to:

1. make whatever auto-moves (zooming animations)/auto-plays on hover over to be static;
2. browse the game catalogue in List View;
3. move the reviews above the "You may like these products" section on game pages.

I don't know if GOG intends to do anything about these, but past experience says you'll get it done long before they do.

Additionally, a couple of gentle reminders:

a. Notifications for forum replies showing in the bell; adaliabooks has already taken care of the core functionality of this, but it'd be nice if we could have it restored all the way to how it worked before GOG did away with it.
b. This issue still persists.
c. The request I made here.

Other than these, looking forward to the new BE version, hope you'll restore everything we had functionality and features wise before GOG's latest revamp.

Cheers for all your efforts that make visiting the GOG site and forum actually user friendly.


EDIT: added some clarification
