    I made a Macrumors Chrome app! I'm not going to upload it, because I don't own Macrumors and am not a Chrome developer, but I can send the files to anyone who wants it for personal use (along with installation instructions), or to an admin if they want to actually post it on the Chrome store. It works fine as far as I can tell from my personal use, and I think it would be a nice thing to have for a committed Macrumors member.
    EDIT: I've been told by an admin I can't give it out, but it may end up modified and used as an official app.

    Sorry to be slow to respond. Like most Chrome apps, it's just a snippet packaged for the Chrome store that when activated, opens the Macrumors site. It shows up in the main Chrome menu for easy access, instead of in the harder-to-reach bookmarks menu. It's main advantage is in being a better alternative to a Macrumors bookmark for people like me who live in Google's ecosystem and/or use Chrome OS devices.
