Link Helper

Description from extension meta

Designed to make clicking links on a laptop easier.

Image from store Link Helper
Description from store I designed this for use on Chrome OS, but it will work just as well if you're using the browser on another platform. When you click a link, instead of opening in the current tab, a little message box will popup allowing you to choose whether to open in a new tab or the current tab. This is especially useful due to right clicking on the Cr-48 being a bit sketchy. =Notes= *I would've used something more conventional than ` for the hotkey to shut off the menubox, but shift, alt, ctrl, and so forth were already being used for something else link related. *When you enable/disable this: it won't affect tabs that were already open. ==Specific problematic sites== *Facebook has some problems with the functionality with this. It's probably because FB itself is a mess of disheveled code. *Google will display the menubox but then decide to follow the link anyway despite my urging it not to. However, sometimes it will work properly. *W3Schools likes stretching the menubox. =Version log= Version 1.1.5: Updated manifest; reduced file size; fixed most CSS bugs Version 1.1.4: Allows JavaScript to execute without offering to place it in a new tab. Version 1.1.3: Removed redundant CSS. Version 1.1.2: Further improvement to menubox disposal. Version 1.1.1: Bottom link coordinate fix. Version 1.1.0: Image links now function. Version 1.0.3: If left unclicked, the menubox will now dispose of itself. Version 1.0.2: Holding ` (~ is also on that key) and clicking will disable the menubox for that time. Version 1.0.1: Far right link coordinate fix. Version 1.0: Initial release.
