I'm thinking of making a simple Chrome extension that would allow you to easily check the price of bitcoin at any time by simply clicking a button in your browser, instead of having to visit a website.  I'm unfamiliar with any APIs that might currently be out there which would make this possible.  Anyone have a recommendation?

To answer my own question, blockchain.info seems to have exactly what I'm looking for:

https://blockchain.info/api/exchange_rates_api

Though I'm always open to learning about other APIs available to me anyway, for future reference.

mtgox has a couple.

I believe the most low-latency API they have is the websockets API, where you subscribe to a price feed in near real time.

Here's a discussion about it and BETA testing:

I think the Coindesk API is simpler. Check it out: https://www.coindesk.com/api/

i like to design a special app for finding bit coin price and checking every day. so now i'm trying to designing new app. actually coindesk API is the best for using. so present i had to using this API only.and making few changes in google then it is easy to finding price.

I wouldn't advise anyone to install unknown extensions. The last online wallet hack was because of chrome extensions btw. So beware people.!

In google sheets (excel) to get BTC/USD value I was made this:
=1000/IMPORTDATA("https://blockchain.info/tobtc?currency=USD&value=1000").
It's work's fine!  Wink
