Chrome Extension Source Viewer
View the source of Chrome extensions with a click

Chrome Extension Source Viewer (CESV) is a free Chrome extension which, as its name suggests, makes it easy to view the source - and embedded images - of Chrome or Firefox extensions.

Once installed, CESV displays a "CRX" icon in the address bar whenever it can be used. Just browse the Chrome store or addons.mozilla.org, find an extension, click the icon and its source is displayed in a new tab.

This opens with two panes. Extension files are listed on the left, and clicking any of these displays its code - nicely formatted and with syntax highlighting - on the right.

Developers can filter these files to explore the code, mark-up, locales and other files, run regular expression searches to find the content they need, or save the source locally as a CRX or ZIP file.

Even if you're not interested in the low-level technicalities, you can still use CESV to find images, view and maybe save them locally.

Verdict:

It's not too difficult to view an extension's source code, but Chrome Extension Source Viewer does make the process very easy, and the bonus features - filtering, formatting, syntax highlighting, image preview etc - more than justify the download.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.81
