Pay bitcoin and see your total balance in the convenience of your browser! Bitcoind and initial configuration required.

==Homepage==

http://kibabase.com/projects/chrome-bitcoin

Homepage is pretty undeveloped at the moment. Will update it with tutorial and how to use it.
==07/20/12 Release==

Popup.html now have link to a transaction page which list the last ten transaction from oldest to newest.
==07/13/12 Release==
0.0.4 is released. Some of the changes are:

*Add last transaction in the popup. Examples are: "Last receive: 0.3" and "Last spent: 1.0"
*Removed a whole file since it wasn't working anymore and wasn't impacting any functionality.
==07/06/12 Release==

0.0.3 is released. Some of the changes are:

*When your daemon is down or the options you input is incorrect, it will show a link to the option page within the popup.
*Further code cleanup

==Original Announcement==

After a few days of struggling, I finally got the extension working again. It only does really basic functionality like get balance and send bitcoin as I was only focused on getting it working again.

==Requirement==

You will need bitcoind and a properly configured bitcoin.conf with its password and username. In addition, you will also need to configure the bitcoin extension to use said password and username to connect to the bitcoind. (I know this is a few steps too many) This extension needs testing and it is recommended that you do not keep more than a handful coins for use.

==Development==

As far as development goes, I plan to update the extension at least every Friday with new features and bugfixes. It is also open source and I welcome contribution.

Github page:

https://github.com/kiba/chrome-bitcoin

==Donation==

If you like my extension, consider donating to 1MT6zn6r2QeCmXWk45c6dL6wmaCAL6ZrRU. My goal is 300 dollars worth of bitcoin. Right now, I have zero bitcoin worth zero dollars. I am 0% in reaching my goal. This will help pay for the rent.

My tip to improve interest: the very first sentence of your very first post should be a simple statement of what this extension does (that's all most people are gonna care about). The first post is too mish-mashy for the casual reader to be able to see what it does, and thus not be interested.

Thanks. I improved  it by saying what the bitcoin extension actually does.

I think this is cool.  Just don't know if I trust it.

It's an open source project. You can look at the source code and see if I am secretly stealing bitcoin from you guys.

I am less worried about that then browser bugs or otherwise leaking this data but I still think it is cool!

I am sorry that you don't feel comfortable using this extension. Sad

Does it recognize bitcoin addresses and make them clickable a la skype? I think bitcoin needs a plugin like that.

It suppose to have that kind of capability but I am not sure if it still works.

I updated today as promised.

This time, the popup will give you information about your last transaction as well.

If blockchain.info came out with an extension that works with their wallet service, I would download it!

I can directly hook into their json_rpc_api if I figure out how to use SSL.

Better than requiring bitcoind.

What is there to figure out about SSL?

Dunno. I thought it's bit more complicated than that. In any case, I actually did try to connect to blockchain.info plain text but it appears that I can't get anything useful out of it.

Setting up an actual HTTPS server requires more work, but from a client you should just be able to specify HTTPS and have it work (unless you are doing all the TCP/IP yourself, but you arenot)

I'll need to debug the interaction with blockchain's API to see why it's not working and make it work. With luck, next Friday we will be able to use the extension with their wallet service.

A little bit of a warning though: There's no 2 factor authentication if you choose to use my extension with their wallet API.

If it's not available for next week, rest assured there will be other enhancements and changes.

I was busy working on other projects and didn't have the time to develop the extension very much, but I didn't forget to update chrome-bitcoin every Friday.

This time, I merely made a transactions page in which you can see the last ten transactions.

Next update will probably have something to do with blockchain.info. If not, expect to see the transactions page improve.
