You may remember this thread: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2280.0

In any case, I am continuing maintenance of this project. Plus, it's a good learning experience for me.

However, I  am skeptical of the possibility of building a full pledge bitcoin node within chrome. I think a far more fruitful endeavorer is to work with bitcoin banks/wallet providers on a standardized interface so that users can sign up with any wallet service they want.

The codebase is here: https://github.com/kiba/chrome-bitcoin

Being the ever greedy person I am, I am going to ask for donation for my otherwise unpaid effort:

TODO at present:

1. Display a list of received transaction
2. Cleanup the codebase. (Damn disorganized and repeat itself too much.)

I'll work with you on this project. I too want a good bitcoin platform in Chrome.

Chipping away at the ugly codebase and generalizing  functions. Breakage expected.

I have merged your master to my fork. The git process seems to be OK.
The changes I made in my pull request are still working and I see your Account changes in my fork are working too.
I had a few problems with merge, because I am not used to collaborative git working. If by any chance you find in my next pull request that I have undone anything you did, it was not intentional. Hopefully, this is not the case.

Barring any bugs, the release window will be every Saturday.

In the next release, you'll be able to get information on your accounts' balance by clicking on the more button in the popup menu, which will open up a tab for your accounts.

Henchan added something called the omnibox(which I have no idea what it do) and internalization feature.

Omnibox is the name of the URL / search box in Google Chrome. Normally when you type a URL in here and press enter, the browser takes you to that site. If not a valid URL, it takes you to your preferred search engine with the submitted string pre-entered. Chrome Extensions may also use the Omnibox as input. With the chrome-bitcoin extension installed, type BTC --help to see how to use this interface.
Regarding internationalisation, the objective is for any linguist to be able to fully localise the extension without going through the code. There is just a single file called _locales/[lang]/messages.json for them to translate.

I want to make it specularly easy for bitcoin users to manage the ever expanding wallets of the bitcoin world but at the same time make it secure.

What should I be looking for in term of security technology? SSL?

I am dismayed by the fact that I need to pay a one time 5 dollars fee as requirement.

Finally got my ass around it and found an unexpected obstacle.
