New Tab Chrome Experiments – A new Chrome Extension

New Tab Chrome Experiments – A new Chrome Extension

I really enjoy making Chrome Extension, I love how fast it is to go from idea to implementation then availability on the store.

My latest extension is called “New Tab Chrome Experiments” was only conceived of on Sunday evening. I then spent yesterday coding it up and now its up and available todownload on the store.

Post To Tumblr – v6.16 – Templated Variables

Post To Tumblr – v6.16 – Templated Variables

Its been a while since I have posted about Post To Tumblr so I thought I would do a quick update seeings as I am still definitely working on it.

The latest update (v6.16) added an excellent community suggested feature “Templated Variables”.

chrome_2016-06-26_15-11-24

Templated variables is accessible from the one-click options and allows users to specify special keywords which get replaced when Post To Tumblr is run:

chrome_2016-06-26_15-15-13

chrome_2016-06-26_15-16-46

This allows users to customize things with much greater freedom than was possible before.

I also added the ability to paste in your clipboard which was another user-requested feature:

chrome_2016-06-26_15-18-27

As of version 6.17 this variable is hidden behind an “optional permission” as it was causing a quite scary permissions dialog when people initially installed or updated the extension which several users were kind enough to contact me about.

So thats the update, I hope you all like it, as usual email me: mike.cann@gmail.com if you have suggestions for other improvements.
