I am pledging a bitcoin bounty of 10 BTC for the development of a chrome extension that interface with a bitcoin wallet or create one.

It must do the following.

1. Automatic receive and confirmation.
2. Detect payment options on website.  A way to click "buy" and bitcoins are deducted.
3. Tell us how many bitcoins there are in the wallet.

It doesn't need to have bitcoin generation feature or any of that, just a very simple wallet management system built right in. Extra bonus points if wallets can access services like mybitcoin.

Pledges:

1. 10 BTC - kiba Paid.
2. 100 BTC - TTbit Paid.
3. 100 BTC -Bitcoinex
4. 40 BTC - sandos
5. 50 BTC - Blimmerhead Paid

300 BTC total.

1 and 3 shouldn't be a big problem here, just a few json-rpc calls afaik. but 2 needs either an official standard code inside the html files that can be recognized by the addon or something like a database with all bitcoin accepting pages that have to be updated every now and then.

I don't know how to make Chrome extensions, just wanted to say something ontopic.

Yes. I pledge 100 coins. I'll pledge more with interest.

I use firefox, but chrome seems to be gaining ground.

I think its need to do this for any browser. and then the appropriate html code will become as standard.

100 BTC from me for chrome or firefox extension

I'd love to see something for firefox. I don't know if you could do something like a href=mailto but instead, make it bitcoin and put the address there like a hyperlink. The addon would then open up bitcoin with the address. I don't know if I want to send directly from the browser, but to at least copy over addresses for me would be nice. Even a little box with my bitcoin total would be fun and a dialog or alert without interference that a payment has been received.

The thing that gets scary about doing things automatically from a browser is when malicious people decide that they can take your whole wallet with a bad site.

I already thought about this problem. I came up with this idea:

Have bitcoin (or some proxy program (I was thinking about this for my pybitcoind-desklet program) in between) start a dbus daemon that accepts "bills". These "bills" list the receiver address, the amount of bitcoins, the program sending the "bill" and possibly a transaction description. On receiving the receipt, the user gets a pop-up/notification about the "bill" to pay it and the user is free to accept or decline the bill. After that the money is send or not.

Via this, possibly every program has a standard interface to connect to for sending bitcoins and there is no direct connection to the rpc interface, so malicious programs can't do any harm (e.g. sending rpc commands that it isn't allowed to do.

Why not just have an 'insert bitcoin address' button? Definitely not a long term solution, but it would hold for short term use!

Put me down for 50BTC.

This is a good idea.  Maybe I need to do a bounty for my Facebook developer store plug-in idea.

Ok, so I have about 80% of this working in Chrome. It just needs fleshed out and polished up a bit and most of the code should translate nicely to Firefox. I'm just not entirely sure what you mean by:

1. Automatic receive and confirmation.

Some sort of alert when you receive a payment?

Well, I wasn't thinking clearly at that time. I think it would be useful if you got notified automatically incoming payment, instead of your wallet's balance silently increase. It helps if you know where you got it from.

Ok. The API doesn't currently seem to support much info on individual received payments. I could set up a timer to periodically check the balance and report differences, but your best readout will be in Bitcoin itself. Otherwise I guess you'd have to use a different address for each received payment. I may have to think about it a bit while I finish the rest of this stuff.

As for automatic detection of payment options, I think I'm going to start with having to select the text of a Bitcoin address, then right clicking and choosing "Send Bitcoins...". It will check to see if what you selected appears to be a valid address and then give you a box to enter an amount to send. After the first version I'll go back over and see if I can perfect some of the functionality. I just want something to start using.

May be make plugin who parses page and search valid bitcoin addresses, and where will it doing the "pay" buttion? Address search can be done quickly - addres is a certain length and starts from "1" symbol.

Or so it will be?

And it need to enable JSON for bitcoin (GUI client)
I wonder, is this possible?

Then would client in the tray, and the user could pay on sites with one click.

The need for a bitcoin GUI client negate the benefit of a chrome extension. The objective is to lower the barrier of getting into bitcoin, not increase it.

No repository. Just a folder with a handful of files. I'm close to having something somewhat presentable. Then I'll release it and post a zip of the sources.
