INSTRUCTION AND FILES FOR THE LOCAL INSTALLATION

1. Download these two files to your computer.

Click to download

2. Right-click on the .zip file and extract it from the archive.

If you don’t have a program which extracts archives you can download the WinRar program from here.

Important: It is very important that you extracted the archive correctly.

Check that in the folder where you extracted the archive files like background.js and manifest.json were present.

If instead you see one folder, which in its turn contains these files, the extraction was incorrect.

Check the scheme below.


[folder with extracted extension] ==> [background.js, manifest.json, other files]    CORRECT

[folder with extracted extension] ==> [one more folder] ==> [background.js, manifest.json and other files]   WRONG


3. Open the Extensions page in your Chrome browser (Settings -> More tools -> Extensions).

4. Enable Developer mode (1) and then click Load unpacked extension… (2)

5. Go to the directory where you extracted the zip file and choose it. Click OK.

You will now have the extension installed.


Important:  If you have the “Could not load manifest“ error please check that you extracted the archive correctly (see p.2).

Important: If you have the “Could not load background script 'background.js'” error, first check that you extracted the archive correctly. If you extracted it correctly and still get the error, the problem might be with your antivirus, which sometimes overreact on .js files.


6. Note that after you restart your Chrome browser, a pop-up window will appear.

Click Cancel to dismiss it.

7. If you don’t want to dismiss the above popup every time, use the following small hack.


  • Make sure you have downloaded the second file with the name DevWarningPatch.bat (see above)
  • Close your Chrome browser.
  • Right-click on the DevWarningPatch.bat file and choose Run as administrator.
  • Launch Chrome. You should now have the popup window dismissed.

8. For the instructions on how to use the extension please check the text instructions in the Blog page or video tutorial in the Main page.

ENJOY USING!
