Select Actions, Chrome Extension

Another extension for Google Chrome, Select Actions adds popup menu functionality to selected text.

To use, highlight some text and the menu will display for 3 seconds. Options allow you to post the selected text to Twitter and Facebook, or share the current page as a Note on Facebook.

You can also use Google services to: define words, translate words, map an address, add an event to your calendar, search on blogs and search on the web.

This is a work in progress, however.


  1. Add an options page
  2. Allow users to add/edit/remove links
  3. Allow users to specify the display length (3 seconds is arbitrary)
  4. Allow users to customize color scheme
  5. Allow users to choose whether to display icons (possibly supplying their own)

Any questions or comments are welcome.
