As stated it’s for Chrome. But for many, it doesn’t work on Windows Chrome… And it’s not compatible with all chromium based browsers. I don’t know if you tried Vivaldi? The User Interface is so good and deeply customizable that it’s hard to come back to Chrome. Especially when one realizes that a Chrome Task (check Chrome’s Task Manager with Shift+Esc) constantly uses 18.5% average of the CPUs… Anyway, Vivaldi is Chromium-based but your extension doesn’t work there Too bad. I’ I’ll keep copy-pasting links in Flashget waiting for your extension to become more compatible with other chromium browsers.

The level of idiocy when using extensions is horrific! Read the overview thoroughly then read the reviews (do not rely on the STAR system underneath title of app/extension; it seldom corresponds w/ the reviews.
