Remove TypeRacer Input limit

This script removes the input length limit which can trip up Plover users.

Simply install the script into TamperMonkey (Chrome) or GreaseMonkey (Firefox) and get racing.

The script was created by community member nimble

// @namespace http://opensteno.org/
// @version 0.2

var inputBox = document.getElementsByClassName("txtInput");
var maxLengthObserver = new MutationObserver(function(mutations) {
mutations.forEach(function(mutation) {
mutation.target.removeAttribute("maxlength");
});
});
new MutationObserver(function(mutations) {
for(var node of inputBox)
maxLengthObserver.observe(node, { attributes: true, attributeList: ["maxlength"] });
}).observe(document.body, {
childList: true,
subTree: true,
});
})();

Now typeracer use https so it's necessary to change the @match URL to use https.

subTree should be subtree. JavaScript is case-sensitive. (however the current script still works because it isn't necessary to listen for subtree changes)
