Transform your existing web applications into Google
Chrome browser extensions and create brand new extensions that improve your own browsing experience and that of your users. This book shows you how Google
Chrome browser extensions are extremely useful tools for enhancing the functionality of the Google
Chrome web browser. For example, you can create extensions to summarize the current page you are reading, or to save all of the images in the page you are browsing. They have access
to almost all of the features provided by the Google
Chrome browser, and they can encapsulate such features in the form of a bundled application providing targeted functionality to users. Extensions also run in a sandboxed environment, making them secure – which is a huge plus in the modern web!
The APIs provided by the Chrome Extensions framework
help you empower web applications by coupling them with amazing features provided by the Google
Chrome web browser, such as bookmarks, history, tabs, actions, storage, notifications, search, and a lot more – facilitating increased productivity on the Google
Chrome web browser.
