about this item

Google Chrome browser extensions are extremely useful tools for enhancing the functionality of web browsers. For example, you can create extensions to summarize the current page you are reading, or to save all of the images in the page you are browsing. They have access to almost all of the features provided by the Google Chrome browser, and they can encapsulate such features in the form of a bundled application providing targeted functionality to users. Extensions also run in a sandboxed environment, making them secure – which is a huge plus in the modern web!
After understanding the examples and lessons in Creating Google Chrome Extensions, you will be able to transform your existing web applications into Google Chrome browser extensions, and to create brand new extensions that improve your own browsing experience and that of your users.
