New version of CSS Reloader for Chrome is out

January 2011

It has been a long time since I did changes to my CSS Reloader browser extension. This evening I had some time, and pushed a updated version of CSS Reloader for Chrome out in the public.

The new version contains a revised code-base, which is way more well structured and cleaner, and I also added som new features:

  • Much requested options-page has been added - allows you to change the keyboard shortcut.
  • CSS Reloader got a nice new logo (credits goes to Everaldo Coelho for the lovely icon.)

Technically I was quite fun to add the options-page, because the settings is persisted in LocalStorage, which is only available for the background-pages in  the extension, and not the content-script that is injected into every tab. To expose the settings for the content-script I have taken advantage of the message passing implementation in Chrome, that allows the extension-parts to communicate using events.

Get the updated version of CSS Reloader for Chrome, or check the source-code out, to see the funky-ness
