Hi, The current plan is to make it into a js gadget. The demo is a standalone tool and I'll move it to tools.wmflabs.org soon. I had chatted with the mobile developers about having something similar on the mobile web to view the changes , so my long term goal is to integrate it into the mobile extension , I think it would be better placed on mobiles than on desktops , but I'dont plan to do this right away.
