List of Useful Add-Ons For Google Chrome Using Bookmarklets

by Chrome Blog on January 4, 2009

As we all know that Google took Chrome out of beta almost a month back, but still there is a strong feeling that there is a long way to go for the browser if it has to compete with other browers such as Firefox.  With the lack of RSS Support features, lack of API’s for add-ons and plugins, and no official version of the browser for Mac and Linux, it would take time before users fully switch to Google Chrome.

Although Chrome’s lacking of such basic features, its lightweight surfing, speedy browsing and easy feel has attracted a lot of people to it. Everyday more and more users are starting to use Google Chrome, though we cant say how many are using Google Chrome as a standalone browser.

Last month Google had announced its plans to release Extensions and Plugins support for Google Chrome, shortly, unfortunately, no one knows when it is going to be released now that 1 month has passed. But till then, there ways to atleast simulate the use of browser extensions. This is done using bookmarklets which are small pieces of javascript code which one can easily add to Chrome’s bookmark toolbar.

Google Chrome Bookmarklets

We have listed some of the most handy bookmarklets for Chrome which many of the users would find beneficial. You might already see many of the bookmarklets being written about in our Google Chrome Forum. We had also developed the Google Chrome Toolbar using such Bookmarklets a while back and got about 75k hits to it already.

HOW TO USE: To use the bookmarklets mentioned below,  you just need to drag & drop the link onto the bookmarks bar of your Chrome Browser.

  • Share in Google Reader – Share the web page you are browsing using Google’s RSS Reader.
  • Note This in Google Reader – It lets you share the item while adding a note with it.
  • Stumble it – Stumble a web page that you liked.
  • Gmail This – Mail any page using Gmail. For Google Apps Mail, try this instead. (You will need to replace “yourdomain.com” with your own domain name).
  • Linkify - Make all plain text URL’s on a webpage into clickable hyperlinks.
  • Take Screenshot – Takes a screenshot using WebShotsPro.
  • Socialize – Submits a blog post from Google Chrome to more than 50 social bookmarking website with just a few clicks.

    Social Google Chrome

  • Google Pagerank – Check Pagerank of any Webpage by clicking on it. This is so far the best alternative to check PR of a site untill any Google Toolbar is lauched for Chrome.
  • Translate – Translate any webpage to English without needing to know the source language.
  • Technorati Rank – Check Technorati Rank, Blog Reactions and Authority of the website you are on.
  • Twitter now – Click on it to update your Twitter account. You will get a pop-up which lets you update your twitter status &check messages.
  • Alexa Rank – Check the alexa rank of the website you are on.
  • Tumblelog – Lets you quickly post to your tumblelog if you have a Tumblr Blog.
  • Dictionary – Look up words in the dictionary. If you are a fan of Thesaurus, then use this Thesaurus. Another, similar bookmarklet called Reference is also available.
  • Post to vi.sualize.us – Post your favorite pictures to the photo-sharing website vi.sualize.us.
  • Share on FriendFeed – Share a link in social media lifestreaming site FriendFeed.
  • Digg – Diggs a webpage.
  • Google Bookmark – Bookmarks a page using Google’s own Google Bookmarks service.
  • Delicious – Save a page to social bookmarking site delicious.
  • Adblock+ – Removes java, flash, background music and third-party iframes. It won’t render properly on this page for some reason, but you can grab it from the original site.

If you would like to see any additions to this list of Bookmarlets do let us know by leaving your valuable comments.

Google Chrome 6 Weeks Later

by Chrome Blog on October 14, 2008

Firstly sorry for the lack of updates this past week, but work has been keeping from doing anything fun. It’s been 6 weeks since Chrome was released, so i thought I’d do a quick recap of things since we kicked off Chrome Plugins.

In no particular order:

We published an article explaining how to switch your Chrome installation over to the Dev Build if your interested in obtaining various bug fixes or new features before it’s released to the masses. You can read how to do this in
Update Chrome to Dev Build

A feature i used in FireFox a lot was the ability to highlight text on a page, then search that text on sites like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Wikipedia, Trends, Amazon, Dictionary.com etc from the context menu. No problems, one click bookmarklets to
Search Selected Text with Google Chrome

Want to split a single Chrome Tab down the middle to view two sites simultaneously so you can do things like read text in one, and write about it in the other? Try
Google Chrome Dual View

One thing many people wanted was a Google Toolbar for Chrome, (almost 10,000 StumbleUpon visitors one afternoon definitely did) and with Google developing both the Browser and the Toolbar many assumed it would of been included in Chrome or at least compatible as an addon. Not so unfortunately, so we came with with basically all the Google Toolbar features as well as the SEOQuake features for webmasters as one click bookmarklet options. So you can have a substitute
Google Toolbar For Chrome

With the common Web Browser becoming more customizable, more personal and remembering more of our behavior it’s nice to have separate profiles so your “nefarious” browsing habits don’t pop up for other users on a shared computer. Miha released the
Chrome Backup and Profile Tool

We also outlined how to create Custom Search Engines in Chrome which allows you to search in any site directly from the Omnibox (Not just Search Engines) provided the site has a search feature. This saves opening another tab, loading the site, navigating to the search box or page to conduct the search.

Do you jump between FireFox and Chrome for your daily browsing? There’s an

For people who make extensive use of keyboard shortcuts when browsing, we have put together a list of

Many people were plagued by scroll problems,

The authors of the popular CCleaner announced in the forum from v2.12.651 there is
Support for Chrome in CCleaner

Also, we built a page that provides information about your Chrome Version, Webkit Version, Flash Info, Java Details, Screen Resolution, IP and ISP details. You can check this out at
Chrome Browser Details

Anyhow that’s a brief look at Google Chrome and Chrome Plugins over the past 6 weeks, there’s many more topics in the Chrome Forum and on the main site.

As mentioned before, work is mounting up but i will do my best to continue with regular updates and new things for Chrome but posting may be sporadic at times. If anyone has an interest in Chrome, and the ChromePlugins.org website feel free to contact me.

Chrome Developer Updates

by Chrome Blog on September 28, 2008

If you are feeling adventurous, you can update your Google Chrome version with the latest developer builds. Many people are unaware on how to do this but it’s very simple to do, and the Dev channel gives users access to upcoming features, features in development, and the latest bug fixes.

However do note, the dev build is mainly designed for developers or people wanting to test the latest updates to Chrome and it may not be as stable as the regular public build. With that said though, i have not noticed an increase in crashes or bugs on the dev build compared to the regular public build.

Also if you have an annoying bug that’s preventing you from using Chrome or doing important tasks, it may be worth a shot to check the latest dev build to see if the problem is fixed and you can try updating. You can opt out of the dev builds at any time if you don’t want to receive any more dev updates, all you have to do is run the Chrome Channel Chooser again and switch back to “Beta” builds.

Still want to continue?

Ok download the Chrome Channel Chooser (Direct from Chromium.org, filesize 100kb)

Run the Channel Chooser, select the Dev box then press Update

Once it’s updated, close the Channel Chooser

Then in Chrome, update as usual by clicking the Wrench Icon then choose About Google Chrome

Done, now just restart Chrome and you will be on the Dev build. Just go back in to Wrench, and About to confirm.

Also i haven’t mentioned before, but i done a page on the forum that shows all sorts of data such as your IP, ISP, PC Details, Java and Flash Versions, Chrome and Webkit Versions and Screen Resolution. It’s useful for veryifying your Chrome and Webkit versions amongst other things, there’s no need to register to use it.

Check Your Browser Details Here

As you can see, the latest Dev build is 0.2.153.1 and i have listed the features and changes below. One good addition to note is the “Add word to Dictionary” so Chrome will no longer highlight it as misspelled.

Highlights:

r2266 Fix scrolling (cannot scroll up) with touchpads on most laptops. Issue 4.

r2334 Fix the problem in 152.1 with the About box spinning forever to check for updates and leaving behind an orphaned chrome.exe process. Issue 2362

r2282 and r2320 Remove the separate installer for the Gears component. It is now installed as a versioned component alongside chrome.dll. When 0.2.153.0 (or later) is installed successfully, the previous version of Gears is uninstalled.

New command line flags are:

–new-http

Enables the new network layer. This is nearly complete, but there are still be some things that don’t work. Areas that need more attention: SSL and SSL-EV sites, proxies (especially requiring authentication), very large downloads (>2GB).

–magic_browzR

Enables the new tab and window manager code. The code has been refactored to help make it more portable, easier to add new features, and make it more Windows-friendly. Things like ‘ Tile windows horizontally’ or extensions that manage multiple desktops/monitors should work, the full Google Chrome window menu is available when you right click a pop-up or application window title bar, and pop-up address bars looks nicer.

User Interface

r2026 Double-clicking a tab’s entry in Google Chrome’s task manager (Shift+Esc) brings that tab to the foreground.

r2222 Your choices for Clear browsing data… are saved so the same boxes are checked the next time you open the dialog.

r2322 Add an “Add to dictionary…” option to the right-click menu for misspelled words. Use this to add a word so that Google Chrome does not highlight it as misspelled.

r2412 Fix an issue that could prevent users from saving bookmarks. Issue 1946.

r2413 Allow mutiple bookmarks to refer to the same URL (which can be useful if you want a bookmark on the bookmarks bar and also saved under Other bookmarks). To get a new bookmark for a URL, either drop a link on the bookmarks bar (not by dragging the star) or right-click the Bookmarks bar and choose Add page…

r2504 Adds a Page info option to the context menu (right click). This brings up the same information as double clicking the lock or warning icon in the address bar of an SSL page.

Plugins

r2400 Add support for Adobe Reader’s fast web view, which fixes a performance problem loading PDF files. Issue 206.

Javascript/Web API

r2061 Add anti-aliasing support for SVG shape-rendering=”crispEdges”.

r2250 Make navigator.language reflect the current UI language for Google Chrome instead of the operating system. Issue 1862.

SSL and SafeBrowsing

r1998 Fix a problem with links or redirects to pages containing malware. The warning page now correctly identifies the new page as the malware host, rather than the previous page.

r2098 Add support for Extended Validation (EV) certificates from GlobalSign.

r2363 Add support for Extended Validation (EV) certificates from CyberTrust.

Tab Model Rewrite (–magic_browzR)

r1996 Fix several issues on Vista, most notably that tabs were not selectable with the mouse.

r2205 Allow windows to be resized on Vista

r2406 Fix an issue with tooltips showing up in the wrong location.

Other

r2223 Turn off making a request to determine the local URL for Google (google.co.uk, google.co.in, etc) when Google is not your default search provider.

r2323 (related to r2223) Don’t set a cookie when making a request to determine the local URL for Google.

r2287 Fix a problem that prevented Google Chrome from being uninstalled immediately. Issue 2321

r2457 Fix the Open dialog (Ctrl+O) so that it does not lock the directory from which you open a file. Issue

r2466 Fix proxy exceptions that include upper-case characters.

Crashes

r2028 Fix a crash when using Find next (F3).

r2090 Fix a crash when using View Source on an https page.

r2131 Fix a crash when copying data to the clipboard.

r2261 Fix a crash when saving a page.

Search Selected Text with Google Chrome

by Chrome Blog on September 16, 2008

One Firefox addon i used quite often was a Context Search and what this done was added a selection of Search Engines and useful sites that would enable you to highlight text or a domain on a webpage then launch a search for the selected text on the chosen website.

It was a great time saver because you didn’t need to open another tab for the particular site, then copy and paste your text in to the search box and hit search. This is what it looked like on the right click context menu in Firefox:

This is one extension i miss, so i thought i would “kind of” make a fix for Google Chrome. When i say kind of, these are Bookmarklets which aren’t quite as convenient as having the functionality built directly in to the right click menu however they are still easier than going about things the old fashioned way and will suffice until we get an API for extensions or addons.

So to use these, drag the links below to your Bookmarks. Then whenever you highlight a piece of text on a webpage, click the corresponding bookmark and it will automatically conduct a search on the site you have chosen. So i have done the sites in the Firefox addon, and a couple of other useful searches.

Here they are:

Google Search Selected Text

Google Search Selected

Google Blog Search Selected Text

Google BlogSearch Selected

Google Images Search Selected Text

Google Trends Search Selected

Google Trends Search Selected Text

Google Trends Search Selected

Yahoo Search Selected Text

Yahoo Search Selected

Live.com Search Selected Text

Live.com Search Selected

MSN.com Search Selected Text

MSN.com Search Selected

Wiki Search Selected Text

Answers.com Search Selected Text

Answers.com Search Selected

CreativeCommons.org Search Selected Text

CreativeCommons Search Selected

Ebay.com Search Selected Text

Ebay Search Selected

Dictionary.com Search Selected Text

Dictionary.com Search Selected

Google Text from Current Website

Google Text from Site

This one above will limit the Google search to just the site you are on, for example if you highlight the word “Bookmark” on this site and click the bookmarklet link it will show all pages listed in Google from ChromePlugins.org that contain the word “Bookmark”. This is quite useful if the site you are browsing doesn’t have a search feature, but they have a great article and you would like to find other similar articles on the site.

Also yesterday i published a whole stack of these in the forum that duplicate the functions of the Google Toolbar, as well as the functions of SEOQuake which is a popular Firefox tool for webmasters and SEO folk. You can view them in the post titled Google Toolbar for Chrome

If you don’t know how to make these site searches for highlighted text and you would like one for a particular site, for example search the highlighted text at AOL.com then just leave a comment below with the site and i will make one and add it to the list for you.

Google Chrome Bugs

by Chrome Blog on September 3, 2008

Here is a list of current bug with the Google Chrome Browser:

Google Sites and Product Issues

Spreadsheets – When you click in one cell, it sometimes focuses on another cell above it. This problem seems most prevalent after doing copy and paste. Close and reload the spreadsheet. This usually resolves the issue.

Docs – Comments don’t work as expected. Pressing Ctrl+M doesn’t insert a comment. When you use the menu to insert a comment and start typing, your text is outside the comment. Use the menu to insert a comment. Click inside the comment to focus it before typing.

Calendar – The day is scrolled up to midnight after you edit an event. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Calendar - If you create an all day event between Friday and Sunday, the event will be one day longer than intended. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Docs – ‘Also editing now’ message redraws multiple times when you scroll. The Docs team will try to work around this in a future release; the real bug is in the WebKit open source project and has not been fixed, yet.

Functionality Issues
The English (US) dictionary is installed by default for all languages. To use another dictionary, choose one from ‘Under the Hood’ tab in Google Chrome options. It will automatically download the next time you enter text in an editable area. This issue will be resolved in an upcoming release.

‘Find in page’ sometimes fails to find entries on very long pages and in editable text areas. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Hardware Issues
Sometimes your laptop won’t go to sleep when Google Chrome is running. Close Google Chrome before closing the lid or putting your laptop to sleep.

Network Issues
Error responses from some proxies are truncated. When an error message is loaded, the explanatory text that follows is abruptly cut off. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Google Chrome doesn’t honor the ‘bypass proxies for these addresses’ list in the Windows’ Internet Options control panel. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Performing searches take a long time, and I see “Resolving proxy…” in the lower-left of the window.
This can occur when your proxy settings are set to “Automatically detect.” To change this setting, go to Tools > Options > “Under the hood” in Google Chrome, and click “Change proxy settings.” Then click “LAN settings” in the new window, and un-check “Automatically detect.” You may need to restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Google Chrome does not support SSL client authentication. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

Plugins Issues
Scrolling is delayed on pages with a lot of plugins (e.g. embedded video or flash). We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.

‘An additional plugin is required to display some elements on this page’. This message appears when you need a plugin but Google Chrome cannot tell what plugin is needed. We’re working on making this a better experience.

Site Display Issues
Unable to remove an entry from Most Visited list. Deleting your history and all the other entries in Most Visited is the only way to fix this right now.

When you open an RSS feed or xml file, it only shows the raw XML data. Use View Source to see the data with better formatting.

Google Chrome’s fixed width font is tiny on some sites. We know about this and don’t currently have a fix.
