Chromium Update Notifications
This extension will periodically check Woolyss' website and display a "New" icon badge once the version found for the selected platform/tag is different to the one you're currently using. Nothing more, nothing less.
As of version 1.1.0, tracking and 1-click-installing of updates for all installed extensions is also supported (those which support auto-updating). Just be aware that to make this work, a list of your installed extensions will need to be periodically transmitted to the chromium-extension-service.
As of version 1.4.0, all installed extensions can be enabled/disabled via a checkbox next to it in the list. Quickly enable/disable extensions you rarely use to increase privacy and browser speed.
- Review source code
- Clone repository or download a release and unpack into a local folder
- Navigate to chrome://extensions
- Enable developer mode
- Drag-and-drop the folder into the browser window or click on "Load unpacked extension" and select folder
Click on the extension's icon, select platform (mac, win32 or win64) and tag – i.e. the Chromium version you're using and enable tracking of extension updates if desired.
To enable 1-click installation of extension updates, you need to set the flag
chrome://flags/#extension-mime-request-handling to "Always prompt for install".
