Mechanical and mechatronics engineers may want a handy app to calculate data for drilling, milling and turning. If you're part of those, you might have searched the Play store only to give up after not finding anything useful.

Browse Image Threads on XDA without Hassle with Desktop Chrome
Threads dedicated to screenshots, wallpapers, signatures, and the like are always quite fun to browse through—either for the creativity boost for your next home screen set up or just to get a taste of what layouts other XDA forum goers have on their devices. Of course, in the format of a forum thread, you’ll most likely continuously click through pages and pages of responses just to do so. However if Google Chrome is your PC browser of choice, you may want to give the XDA Gallery extension for Chrome a go.
Developed by XDA Senior Member RubenRybnik, XDA Gallery fetches all images from a thread in a new tab, allowing you to view them in one scrolling page, without the thread pages and responses. With each image, there’s a link to the post that it is originally a part of, as well as a link the to the page of the thread that the post can be found in. Pressing on an image enlarges it, and with the pop-up image gallery, you can navigate left and right, much like how the forums display image attachments.
This will no doubt be useful for many forum goers, allowing a quicker and more convenient way of browsing screenshots, wallpapers, icon packs, and so forth. So if you would like to try XDA Gallery out on Chrome, visit the original thread.
