Facebook does not provide a way to have groups that anyone can join instantly. Someone already in the group must add them, or they can request approval from a group admin. The likely reason for not providing this is that it would attract spammers. Old-style open groups had spam problems and they did not even have the new group notification or chat options....

As of May 2012, the recommended tool (according to the owner - AVOS) for using Delicious in the browser is via the bookmarklet. This was announced in a blog post (Update on the browser extensions) from January 15, 2012. The reason is that the company has decided to focus on improving the service and providing the best possible experience across all browsers, ...

Use Last.fm Scrobbler as Chrome extension. 11,862 users. It should work. Sorry, being in India, couldn't try it out.

According to the Google support pages, you should check 4 items to be sure. Ensure your notifications are enabled. (Which you already said you have checked). Be sure you are NOT using Flashblock.

I think mostly so that they can act like bookmarks, only better. I have a Google Docs icon on my desktop that will launch Chrome and go straight to my documents. Sure, I could drop a bookmark there just as easily, but by default it'll have the logo of my default web browser. Sure, I can change it, but it's a hassle. Also, since it's a "Chrome app", it can do ...

I came up with some solutions and they seem to work at the moment: First, the easiest one. Use the bookmarklet I have mentioned here. When you click the bookmark, YouTube video will stop. If you need a button, use this userscript. I recently created my own Google Chrome Extension. If you are a Chrome user, you can make use of this extension instead of the ...

I found the perfect Chrome Extension - adds "Share on Google Plus" in Reader. Here's the link. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cngpndgifehgejmkemnmmiknpafnhpec Works a charm for me.

I'm not finding any apps that have an initial charge either. I am finding apps that require you to pay money in order to use them, but just not install them. Netflix, for example. You can install the app for nothing... the service is just useless without an account. FreeMovies.com is another one. The Chrome app costs nothing. However, in order to ...

There are many ways of writing down your URL's. I personally am a sucker for Delicious even though the service has been facing some issue. The only reason I am stuck with them is because I have over 4000 bookmarks and have a few stacks which I like. Usually, you can use a combination of one or more services: Look at Faveous. Its a little buggy with ...

Ghostery and Disconnect act as content blockers (if you've enabled blocking) and their innards are very similar. Heres an answer I provided recently on Ghostery support board: This question is asked pretty often on our support boards (I work for Ghostery). You can use however many addons you want in conjunction, however, both DNTMes and Disconnects ...

Short answer There is no difference at all. Explanation The screenshot doesn't correspond to an extension. Please note that the right up corner only display the "Visit website" button but not the "Add to Chrome" button. The screenshot it's about the Inbox by Gmail directory/catalog entry about in the Chrome Web Store. At this time the Chrome Web Store ...

Update: 7/18/13 Div from Google has posted an update on the Google Products Forum: Hi folks: Thanks so much for your reports -- we definitely want you to get to publishing! We've been working with the team here and it looks like a fix is on its way (hurray). No exact timeline, but it should be here soon. More from me if I receive any updates. ...

Sounds like LastPass needs to register the binary version with the Chrome Store that way it will sync the correct extension. Chrome can't sync what it doesn't know. :-\

Evernote doesn't support pushing content into the client. Having the client continuously polling their servers at a very frequent interval would place a lot of unnecessary load on their servers, which is probably why the minimum is 5 minutes. The best solution is to manually press the 'Sync' button in the client if you want to immediately view a note that ...

Kilrplatypus' solution is almost perfect. However, it has the sub-subdomain names in the rules (us-mg5) which is not constant.

Short Answer No, there isn't. Long Answer The Google Docs app available via the Chrome Web Store actually works as a shortcut or bookmark to the web app. The Google Docs offline capability, is actually a feature of the Google Drive web app. It requires Chrome to work, but not the Google Docs Chrome extension. There isn't a way to select with files or ...

Only Google can say for sure, but it seems to me that it is likely there were two different extensions originally, and they've been able to merge the codebases. Perhaps one had been originally for Chromebooks and the other for Chrome on other OSes. And, while they've been able to make them identical, some people will have one installed and some the other. ...

The first one is an extension, but the second one is an application (The reviews tab says "Rate this extension" or "Rate this application"). Extensions can appear in the extension bar. Apps can appear on the apps screen.

With the recent changes to Google Reader, this is now possible. You can either click the +1 button at the bottom of an item and optionally add a comment, or you can click in the Share... field at the top right corner of the window. The Share... field lets you share without adding the item to your +1 list.

Looks like I’m a bit late. As Sk Nepal mentioned, you can use a simple bookmarklet to address the issue. It will be workable as long as YouTube has a static player ID. Here is my version of the bookmarklet.

The only way for a Chrome extension to gain access to the HTML code inside a tab, or in your case your password, is to inject a content script in the form of a javascript file. I've created a quick Chrome extension to try this out myself. Luckily, it is not possible to inject content scripts into other chrome extension tabs - only in tabs that match http://*...

Found an imperfect workaround. Seems that Chrome stores its offline sync data under IndexedDB. Visiting a docs.google.com domain (e.g. an offline synced document) and clearing (truncating) a couple of tables under Developer Console > Resources > IndexedDB > GoogleDocs (using the Clear object store at the bottom) seemed to do the trick. The ...

This makes no sense at all, but somehow the Chrome LastPass extension is triggering the spam filter. I tested this by opening an incognito window and performing the identical edit, which succeeded. After that, I disabled all plugins and enabled them until I found the culprit. I guess I'll have to temporarily disable LastPass whenever I edit Wikipedia ...
