    Default Toolstrip gone - Can I fix my Extension

    Hi,

    I had a little extension that used the toolstrip.

    I've just updated by Chrome to the latest Dev release and they have now removed the Toolstrip.

    Is there anything I can do to get my extension to display it's output somewhere else?

    Yes you can use Browser Actions or Page Actions
    Just of curiosity - what is your extension?

    Ok, i ported it for a browser action its faaaaaaaaaaaar from perfection, but i have no time right now to perfect it. I guess it's working. Go ahead and say what you think. Click attachment to install (you'll need to uninstall previous version (be sure to remember/write somewhere your id's))

    Wow, thank you so much, that's very kind of you. Seems to be working

    Now that the toolstrip is gone, is there anywhere in Chrome that could be used to display the numbers without having to click the icon.

    I really appreciate your time and effort to help me.

    There are numerous extensions who already do that, Flub:

    The ones you see here are:
