  1. Jeff says:

    It seems you forgot to ship the font with the plugin… My Google home page just has broken image icons where the letters should be.

  2. Ck says:

    Doesn’t work. The images of the letters don’t load when you visit the Google homepage.

  3. Sorry about that. It’s the ‘appid’. When I uploaded it I didn’t know the appid of the extension, which it uses to link to the font. If you download the upgrade (latest version is 0.2.1) it will all work fine.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Furthermore there’s no [Install for Chrome] -button on this whole page, either…
    The only way seems to go be the “older versions” -page, which contains same,
    but older plugins, with the same faults as in the newest version. O_o …?…

    I think it’s awesome. Go to extensions(the icon on the toolbar that looks like a wrench) and click on options and add what you want.
    Just awesome

    Why does it need access to my private information on all websites?
