A simple Stop button
A simple Stop button, for those who want one to the right of the Address Bar. To save RAM, the extension uses an event page rather than a persistent background page. Hopefully it won't lag during heavy disk access. For a Reload button, see: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/reload/fcofhoajikoooeongdbjbgnjpmgehgja *** Changelog 0.5: Updated icons to match Chrome's new Material theme. 0.4: Replaced scary <all_urls> permission with "activeTab". Consequently, minimum Chrome version bumped to 26. 0.3: Removed "tabs" permission. Turns out it isn't needed to call chrome.tabs.executeScript.
