    Default Right click a Browser Action Extension

    I had no idea that I could right-click a browser action (extension) and have the following popup:

    Name of the extension: when clicked it leads you to the extension's page on https://chrome.google.com/extensions
    Options: grayed out if none available otherwise the options page for that extension
    Disable: obvious
    Uninstall: obvious
    Manage Extensions: goto your extensions page (chrome://extensions/)

    I find this a great addition, not having to go to extensions page per se

    @StevePaul

    I have the tendency to right click on everything

    I did this with the previous versions of Chrome but nothing happened until now...

    This info is also available in Google Chrome release notes:
    http://googlechromereleases.blogspot...update_11.html

    This functionality was implemented into ToT/Dev channel and now available in Windows Beta.

    - [r34858] Adds a right-click context menu for Browser Actions and Page Actions. ( Issue: http://crbug.com/29538 )

    Ok, thanks, only I never read any Beta channel changes because I am on the dev channel.

    What is ToT/Dev ?

    Sorry for writing in too much shorthand. I meant: already implemented in "ToT" / "Dev channel".

    Dev channel you all know; that's the Dev channel releases:
    http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

    ToT means Tip-Of-Tree/Trunk, which means the latest code that the devs are working on. The latest ToT nightly/daily builds are available from:
    http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/continuous/
