    Post DblClickDial - a new chrome extension

    Today I created my first small extension for google chrome.
    DblClickDial gives you the flexibility of having the newtab pages blank by default, and upon dblclick- view your history.
    Need to hide it again- just double-click anywhere on the page.

    You can download it here:

    "Could not install extension from 'C:\Users\<User>\Downloads\DblClickDial.crx'. Invalid extension manifest."

    This is on dev version 2.0.180.0.

    If you wish your plugin to work with this vesrion then update your manifest for the appropriate newtab URL: chrome://newtab/

    Of course I'm sure it probably works with older dev versions and the beta version as well (not sure if beta supports .crx install since I've never used beta).

    I have updated the manifest. Let me know if it works OK for you now.

    I disabled my custom new tab extension and tried yours out. It does indeed work fine now, just not the functionality I need.

    Make sure it's "Path to chrome.exe" --enable-extensions

    @foosy

    I've recently been looking at extensions that have been posted on this forum but previously I hadn't had the time to look at ...

    One of those in question is you DCD ...

    I currently use Custom NewTab to have effectively a second home page ...

    Having said that I found your extension to be quite cool ...

    Unfortunately you can't use both of them together ...

    I have two questions ...

    How easy would it be to have an option in yours to specify a page of your choice (as in CNT) and the other, can you change the double click to a single click ...

    @ Foosy: any chance to have your extension re-packaged so that it works with the latest Chrome dev version again?
