Me? Hmm... screenshot?

Chrome extensions are too half-baked for me. The page says my version doesn't support them yet. To fix it, they ask me to visit the beta channel and give me a link to it, but that link is dead. Bravo, Google.

Regarding the icon, what I figured here was that this extension is very directly targeted at speedcubers, most of whom are probably forum members here. I figured that the people who download this extension will already be well aware of who the original author of qqtimer is (and in case someone didn't, it's in the description.) Based on this, I (somewhat jokingly) figured that I should make the icon something that the target group will relate to speedcubing, and Stefan just popped into my head. If it's really that much of an issue though, I can change it when I get home.

I think there should be a button that lets you open qqtimer in a new tab while retaining the times.
Well I could put in a link to qqtimer at the bottom, but I'm fairly certain I can't move the times over.

Hit the wrench at the top left and go down to extensions. There should be a disable and an uninstall button.

I've found it's easier to just save the page to my computer. Chrome's extensions haven't worked well for me (I AM running the Linux dev build though, so that may be it) but I'll give it a try after my comp sci exam that starts in 8 minutes.

Hey guys, MAJOR changes thanks to Patrick Jameson. My only role in this version was hosting it on my account, so 100% of credit goes to him. According to google, the update should role out to users within a few hours, but if you want it now you can just reinstall it.


Edit: About dropdown menus not working and the timer losing anything as soon as you click out of them. These are both functions of chrome, not the extension. The dropdown issue is being dealt with, and I know a lot of developers are asking google to allow extensions to run in the background, so hopefully both issues will be dealt with in the near future.
