Download the ZIP from GitHub and extract the contained folder.
Open the Chrome extensions manager (Settings -> More Tools -> Extensions, or chrome://extensions).
Enable developer mode by checking the box.
Click "Load Unpacked Extension" and select the extracted folder containing the extension files. If you receive a manifest not found error, check for nested folders. Sometimes extracting will cause nested folders.
You can access the options page by clicking "Options" from the extensions manager, or by right clicking the extension icon at the top right of Chrome.
Enter website names into the box, one per line. This must be the full website name, including subdomains if required. Example:
example.com github.com www.reddit.com

Click save. Now when you perform a Google search or browse Reddit, links matching those that you defined in the configuration will be highlighed in green. The extension icon in the top right will also turn green when you are currently browsing a whitelisted site.
