Chrome Pig extension checks Gmail, takes screenshots -- and lets you set clipboard images as wallpaper!
Enter Chrome Pig. Yes, it's weirdly named. Yes, it includes a somewhat random mish-mosh of features, but dang, are they handy ones. Chrome Pig can:
- Screenshot an entire page, the viewable portion, or a selected region
- Check Gmail for unread messages (you must be signed in)
- Open supported files types in the Google Docs previewer
- Edit a page's CSS to your liking
- Re-enable right click on sites which disable it
- Search the site you're currently browsing
- Open the current page in IE
- Set a clipboard image to your desktop wallpaper
Some of Chrome Pig's features -- lyric search, form fill, and translate, for example -- I can do without. The configuration page offers checkboxes to disable unwanted items, though they still appeared in the drop-down after multiple disable/enable attempt and a browser restart. Hopefully the developer will address this issue in a coming update.
That shortcoming aside, I'm happily adding Chrome Pig to my extensions -- it'll replace two other and add a couple additional features which will come in handy.
