Chrome Extension: jsshell

I started messing around with writing a extension for Chrome yesterday and I'm surprised just how easy they are to put together. With the exception of a little configuration the whole process is HTML and JavaScript -- something that most of us are already experts at (not saying I'm an expert, I'm just saying for the rest of you)

In any case, it didn't take very long to put something that wasn't half bad.


I'm taking votes on a better name, but for now I simply named it jsshell or JavaScript Shell. Basically, you get a nifty little window as you browse the web that you can use jQuery and jLinq to execute custom commands. Not a bad idea, huh?

I won't talk about it too much here since you can find all kinds of information on the jsshell project page.

Don't forget, this extension only works with Google Chrome (and possibly only version 4). Try it out and let me know what you think!
