Chrome Toolbox extension adds keyboard shortcuts, tab tweaks and more

Chrome Toolbox is an extension for Google Chrome released by Google themselves that brings a handful of new features that should have been native to the browser. Chrome Toolbox add plenty of new enchantments, tab tweaks, keyboard shortcuts, and other options that regular Chrome users love to have. Here is a brief overview of what you get with this extension.

  • When the mouse pointer hovers over an image, a toolbar floats into view. This toolbar has a magnifier, option to view original image, and set the same as desktop wallpaper. Likewise, there is a toolbar for videos too.

  • Drag any video on a web page (Flash and HTML5 video) out of the page in its own stand-alone window, closing the window puts it back to the original page, both with play state reservation
  • Prevent the browser from closing the current window when closing the last tab. Instead, a new tab is created.
  • Double click on a tab to close it
  • Option to open links always in a new tab
  • Save and restore unsubmitted form data, to avoid data loss caused by session expiration or a no-cache page setting

  • Using Atl+1 through Alt+9, you can launch predefined URLs (from your Bookmark Manager folder)
  • Learn, compare and contrast shortcuts in Chrome and other popular browsers.
  • Put your favorite Chrome functionalities in the drop down menu, reorder them in the way you like
  • A Boss Key for quickly hiding content your boss (or anybody) shouldn’t see.
  • Mute all tabs to mute sounds from any pages opened in the tabs.
