Very useful and convenient!
Thanks.
I like that one. Thank you
Exactly what I needed to modify some old threads SERPs. I have a number of threads where first 160 characters of a first post is not representative of the thread content. Now I will be able to change the title and description manually, to better present the thread in Google's results.

With a special permission you can actually see meta tags displayed in content, which helps a lot.
