Install (you must trust my code)

If you downloaded an extension from somewhere other than Google, Chrome will not let you install it on the fly. You have to go to the browser menu and choose Tools->Extensions to open up the Extensions tab. Then drag the extension from wherever it is on the file-system to the open Extensions page. This should start the install process. If you ever feel funny about a packed extension you can unzip them to inspect the code (if you don’t have 7zip you’ll have to change the file extension to .zip – do it on a copy).
