Chrome Markdown Extension

Automatically parses Markdown files into HTML. This is useful if you're writing Markdown (ultimately targeting HTML) and want a quick preview.


  1. Install extension from webstore (creates no new UI)
  2. Check "Allow access to file URLs" in chrome://extensions listing: fileurls
  3. Open local or remote .md file in Chrome.
  4. See nicely formatted HTML!


Thanks to Kevin Burke for his markdown-friendly stylesheet, to John Fraser for his JavaScript markdown processor and to Swartz and Gruber for Markdown.
