I try not to blog much about work stuff here, but I recently released my first extension for Google Chrome and I’m sort of proud of it. It’s the Alexa Traffic Rank extension, and it allows you to get Alexa metadata about sites that you visit. I advocated for it, designed it, coded most of it, and am now promoting it. It’s my baby. 🙂
As it turns out writing Chrome extensions is amazingly simple. The folks at Google have done a good job making it easy for developers. I have a couple of ideas for things I could code up in my spare time (ha!). In the mean time, two other extensions I really like are the Amazon Universal Wish List and Web of Trust. Also, if you’re still using Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari, I do recommend trying Chrome. It’s amazingly fast, and my current favorite browser.
