    Default Making plug ins

    Hi there,
    can anyone point me to some information on making plug in's for chrome. I'm a programming student and was considering working on a mouse gestures plug in as a project for fun.

    any ideas?

    thanks,
    Marco.

    I would be interested in helping make Chrome plugins as well. Anyone have some resources they can share?

    Mouse gestures work pretty well with StrokeIt and a custom config file. Get them here:

    http://rs583.rapidshare.com/files/14...a_gestures.sxp

    Plugins must be done as external programs (like StrokeIt here or Privoxy to block ads), or as JavaScript bookmarklets. However, addon support is coming.

    So, there is no clear answer to what you should make, if any at this point. What programming languages you study/master? JavaScript is definitely the way to do it right now, but others can be handy too.
