Google Chrome Extension that shows various types of textual files inside of the browser instead of downloading them.


Have you ever wanted to view a textual file in Chrome (say, text/turtle) but did your browser just save it to your Downloads folder?
This extension aims to change this using the experimental downloads API.


  • Currently, it only works with the latest Canary.
  • You need to enable Experimental Extension APIs in chrome://flags.
  • The download is canceled, but still appears on the downloads bar.


As this extension uses an experimental API, it cannot be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store.
