Today the Send To Phone extension has been approved so installing it should be a little easier and less "frightening", but most important, now it's part of the auto-update so everyone should get the latest version soon.
Well, maybe not everybody because looking at the stats it says that one user has tried to install it in Thunderbird, and someone else is running Firefox 2.0, so I guess that he might have disabled automatic updates (but then why does he wants an extension that requires you to be on the bleeding edge using a pre-release OS in your phone?)
Since the initial release the extension has got some little adjustments:
- First the localizations, now they are partly done so if you have an update for your language send it to us.
- Then the context menu was improved to allow better control over sending links or images.
- After that a little adjustment to try to send the current view while navigating the maps instead of just the Google Maps url
- And the last one before approval was a context menu on the toolbar to allow to logout (it just clears the cookie), so you can switch accounts.
Lots of people are downloading the extension and they are happy about it. It's not a revolution about how to use your mobile, but I've found it useful to quickly send to the phone a url or video that I wanted to watch as I move away from the computer.
The next things that might get added is support for more apps (Seamonkey, Thunderbird) and a more controlled login experience (use our own dialog instead of showing the default login in a new tab). Drop here a note if you have a nice idea, but remember that this is only the part for your browser, the Android App is the one provided by Chrome to Phone project.
