Show humans.txt for the current website, if it exists (see http://humanstxt.org)
Humans.txt is a new standard in use by Google, Flickr, and many grassroots web developers. It's a way to recognize the humans who made a website, and the tools they used. This extension shows an icon in the address bar for sites using humans.txt, so you can discover it's available. Click on the icon to see the humans.txt file. Try it on http://humanstxt.org or http://google.com for example. Extension by Michael Mahemoff, Player FM (http://player.fm) and originally created while at Google. Update Jan 17, 2013 - Updated to use Chrome Manifest v2 - Supports https, with thanks to Starkov matmuchrapna (https://github.com/matmuchrapna) for the patch - Ensure min width and text wrapping - Improve footer Update June 26, 2011 Now using official humans.txt logo, and some other internal updates. Update March 31, 2011 Thanks for all your Twitter feedback since I launched this yesterday! The tool now filters for "text/plain" content types, which will remove a few false positives. It also now checks for humans only once per origin, instead of on every page load, and will respect port numbers too.
- (2021-05-10) Wanja: Pro: Display the contents of the humans.txt file on clicking the extension button in the address bar. Feature Request: change the icon color, depending on the currently visited site having a humans.txt file or not (would be really handy) Bug (Chrome Version 90.0.4430.93 (Offizieller Build) (x86_64)): Visiting any site with HTTP-Authentication will close the Login dialogue on page load (which makes it impossible to enter whatever credentials for the site). I had to uninstall the extension due to this behaviour.
- (2017-02-23) Mateusz Abramek: Suddenly even if it detects human.txt, often it is active for short time, than it's, as it didn't see the file, inactive.
- (2014-03-06) Luke Watts: Great little plugin, would be great if it uses the <link rel="author" > if it's on the page. Sometimes it's not possible to put it at root.
- (2011-12-15) Oli Mortimer: Great add-on, but would be even better if it had similar functionality to the 'Humans' add-on on Firefox - this pulls Twitter pictures and displays a pop-up when you first load the site
- (2011-11-23) Daniel Marcos Perujo: Thank you! Simple and usefull
