An extension to control Pandora from an easy-access popup
Instead of going through a dozen tabs to find the Pandora tab to skip this annoying song, this extension will let you skip, thumb-down, thumb-up, pause, and play your Pandora from a little easy-access popup, along with other extra features. How it works: The extension detects the tab that has Pandora in it and sends the control commands to it, without having to have the Pandora tab active. Extra features: - button to switch to Pandora tab - display song info: name, artist, album, album art - display song play info: time remaining and elapsed, time progress - detect indicators for play, pause, thumb-up, and thumb-down buttons - provide links to YouTube and Google, searching by song name and artist, and lyrics Note: This extension is not affiliated with Pandora itself in any way -- I just like Pandora so much and I have a billion tabs open and just want to skip this annoying song without having to fiddle through my tabs.

- (2017-09-27) Jon Roberts: Running Windows 7 and current version of Chrome Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit), it was a fail. The interface looks great, icon works as expected. But the controls absolutely do not work on my system.
