Happy B-day S=S+S ^.^

One year since I published the first public version! :D
Time flies!
I just managed to publish 01.7.5 which has very little over last version -which was 3 days ago-.
I improved usability -and code- on the main Search Engines list, on the Option's page. Toy with it and you'll notice.

I'm just taking a look at the stats, and they are really cool, the way the extension is being used... I'm really glad it is useful to other people. A really nice feelling.

We'll I'm too tired, way past my bed time. I'll post some 1 year stats soon.

Again, thanks for using it!

Cheers :)

Version options page revamped

Last months have been crazy. Not much time to dedicate to this, but the Options Page has been calling to my inner designer instincts.

So here it is, as from today, your Options page should look a lot different.... A lot alike Chrome's own tools page... A complete rip off, I should say.

I've come so far as to copy a few stylesheets and an image from its code! Let's call it "repurpose" or "reuse" (don't really know if the word applies to what I want to say).
I've would have linked to them directly, but extensions are not allowed to access those Chome resources, it seems.

I specially recommend widgets.css. It's simple, elegant, and gives your basic html form controls a great cool look. Don't know how compatible this is to other browsers, nor care for the purposes of this extension, but I recommend it.

Besides the look&feel of the Options page, haven't done much. A few minor code improvements.

I have a few requests from users, which I'll post latter. Most of them require that I inject some code to all the pages you visit. I'm trying to decide if is it worth it or not. Probably not worth it.

So, that's it for today.... Thanks again to the users who are buying on amazon using my extension.... I've been getting a few bucks which I'll soon use to get some cool stuff :)
I should also share some with German, who keeps suplying cool icons... Yes, not all of them are "borrowed" from Chrome.
