Sentiment Summarizer ==================== A chrome extension that shows a sentiment summary for web pages which contain opinionated texts marked with Review micro formats (see schema.org). It features a hack that allows to analyze twitter feeds: 1) Issue a query on twitter; 2) press the page reload button; 3) wait for up to 5 sec until the page action is triggered. The sentiment summarizer extension comprises three components: * Content script `contentScript.js` scrapes the review texts from the web page and submits a post request to sentimentanalyzer.appspot.com. The resulting scores are send to the background page. * background.html The background page listens for messages from the content script. When a message arrives the review stats are stored in an associative array mapping a tab id to the review stats. Finally, it calls the `show` method of the popup page action. * popup.html The popup page action retrieves the tab stats from the background page and displays them.
