In a future update soon I will add the ability to select background and text color. Update 1.5.2: - Recover from idle state (sleep or hibernate) Update 1.5.1: - Fixed extension not automatically initializing on browser startup Update 1.5.0: - Switch to Manifest v3 - Removed inline jQuery - Changed update interval to 29 seconds (down from 5 minutes, due to manifest v3 limitation) Update 1.4.9: Fix broken badge background color Update 1.4.8: Fix manifest permissions Update 1.4.7: Fixed manifest file permissions and coinbase pro bug. Update 1.4.6: Fixed coinbase since they changed their api. Removed btc-e and gdax, added coinbase pro. Update 1.4.5: Added units to options, so you can display price in mBTC, uBTC, and sat. Update 1.4.4: Corrected display from 1k to 10k properly. I guess I was in disbelief that it was actually 10k :) Update 1.4.3: Fixed four digit numbers to still work how they used to. Update 1.4.2: Added a precision option so you can adjust the display for what works for your machine. Update 1.4.1: Added support for more than 4 characters, basically now if the number would go >9999 it converts to 1.0k (or 1.1k, 1.2k, etc.) This is about the best I can do given the limitations of the chrome extension api. Also added support for CAD on coinbase, and changed coinbase-exchange to gdax. Update 1.4.0: Added two new exchanges (coinbase exchange and kraken) and also added the ability to switch currencies (USD and EUR). Also removed mtgox. Update 1.3.0: Added an options page to choose which exchange to pull ticker data from. (Note: Due to this change there are new permissions, so you will need to re-enable the extension and accept these.) Update 1.2.1: Updated to mtgox api 2, removed no cache, as it looks like it was being blocked on mtgox's end. Update 1.2: Added no cache directive so the value should always be the latest. Some users were experiencing the data not updating as often as it should because their browser was caching it. Update 1.1.1: Changed to use https for mtgox api. Update 1.1: You can now click the icon to manually update the current price. Be warned, doing this too often (like many times in a few seconds) could get your ip blocked. 1.0: Initial release.

  • (2017-05-14) Martin Leitner-Ankerl: The numbers are getting too small (or the price is too high :))
  • (2017-04-22) Shaya K.: Great, but there needs to be an option for CAD. No option for CAD T_T

  • (2013-03-24) Ryan Gibbons: Works great, gets updates from MTGox every couple of minutes. Only wish is that you could force refresh the ticker by clicking the extension icon. Either way, this is a great extension to have. EDIT: It does have the refresh as of today, so now its EVEN BETTER!

Latest issues

  • (2023-04-19, v:1.4.9) Robert Elliot: suggested feature
    An option to hide the BTC price and only display when you click on the icon. The reason is for people who compulsively, habitually look at the price and would like to "slightly" reduce it's visibility for purposes of mental hygiene.
  • (2021-05-17, v:1.4.7) Honest Ex-Pirate: notification sound
    How do I change the notification sound? is there such an option?
  • (2018-09-25, v:1.4.5) plz fix
    How do you delete the backround once its there
  • (2017-11-28, v:1.4.0) Leonardo Onieva: only one icon?
    I see in the screenshot 2 icons with different coin prices but I only see BTC displayed in my browser, and there's nothing to add a second icon in options
  • (2017-03-22, v:1.4.0) Ahmad Al-Awadi: PLEASE FIX
    It doesn't show 4 digits well
  • (2017-01-03, v:1.4.0) Trevor Pirtle: Price does not display in 4 digits
    The icon just shows "10..." Please fix. Either find a way to squeeze four digits or but the price in mBTC, e.g. "1.02"
  • (2017-01-02, v:1.4.0) James Morgan: now price is 4 digits (>= 1000)
    ... display just says"10.." - please fix.
  • (2016-08-15, v:1.4.0) ВИКТОРИЯ СИБИРКО: расширение
    привет,как оно работает ,и что где выводить
  • (2016-06-24, v:1.4.0) Matt Wawzonek: Available Currencies
    Great looking extension, but there only seems to be the option to display the BTC value in USD or euros.... any plans to add more currencies? would love to have CAD. Cheers
  • (2015-12-08, v:1.4.0) Werner van Rooyen: Please add BitX Exchange
    Hey there! BitX (https://bitx.co/api) has ZAR (South African rand) and MYR (Malaysian ringgit), two popular emerging market currencies, on their exchange. Could you please add those two? I'd be happy to send you 0.05BTC for the effort?
  • (2015-01-28, v:1.4.0) Fernando Draghi: New permissions
    Why do you need to "read AND CHANGE my data in a number of websites" ?
  • (2014-03-17, v:1.3.0) Asdren Rrahmani: Add new exchange
    Hi can you please add kraken.com as an exchange and remove mtgox. Also if you could make it possible to choose € as currency. Thanks for this great extension.
  • (2014-01-21, v:1.2.1) Selling your extension
    Hey, I am a web developer that is thinking about developing a bitcoin extension. I saw your extension, and it can be a good starting point for my project. Do you consider selling your extension ? Contact me at: [email protected] Almer.
