Share On…

“Share On” is a simple Chrome Extension which allows you to share pages to certain social networks.
It’s nothing major, just something I put together instead of having multiple extensions for each service.

Download Share On*

*Note, when downloading the extension, (depending on your version of Chrome) a message will appear the top of the page saying “Apps, extensions, and user scripts cannot be added from this website.”. This is a security message built into the browser. To alert you the extension is not in the Webstore, therefore Chrome cannot verify it.
To install the extension, visit chrome://extensions (or Menu -> Tools -> Extensions). Now open up your downloads folder, find the extension shareon.crx and drag ‘n’ drop onto the extensions page.

How the version system works:

  • First Digit: Increases over time/major update
  • Second Digit: Increases for new features
  • Third Digit: Increases for bug fixes
