Get the Latest XDA News with Unofficial Extension
For those who aren’t aware, keeping up to date with the latest XDA Portal posts while browsing the forums is as easy as glancing to the sidebar on the right of the screen. However, users of Google Chrome and Opera on the PC can now see the latest Portal happenings from any part of the web with the unofficial XDA Portal Browser Extension.
Developed by XDA Recognized Contributor - Swift -, the unofficial XDA Portal Browser Extension works with Google Chrome and Opera. The extension adds a subtle XDA icon to your screen, which when pressed, pops up the ten most recent XDA Portal posts. Clicking on a post will open up the article in full in a new tab. There’s also a text box at the top, enabling you to quickly search for previous articles and posts.
The extension can be found in Opera’s web store. Google Chrome users have to manually install the extension, as it is still not yet available on Google’s store. Fear not though, as installation is as simple as a couple of clicks and a drag-and-drop.
If this has you curious, check out the original thread for more details.
