Plugins Button

Shortcuts to Chrome plugins pages




This is just a menu with shortcuts to Chrome plugins settings. When installed, it looks like this:

It's just a quick way to access the "Plugins" pages from the Chrome toolbar. It gives you quick access to general Flash settings and some other relevant settings pages that we have to use nowdays instead of the old chrome://plugins page.

Get it on Chrome Web Store »  

 

Notes:

Before version 57 of the Chrome™ browser the plugins page was called ... Hmm... "Plugins".

In the newer versions of the browser (57 and up) the "Plugins" page is replaced by "Components" page.

But this new page doesn't have the good old "Enable/Disable" features and is, for that reason, close to useless.But there is the only plugin left which we may want to controll (enable and disable) -- the Adobe Flash plugin. So we changed the button into a menu with quick shortcuts to the new enable/disable pages -- the general "Flash" settings page (to turn on/off Flash for all sites) and site settings button which you can use to quickly allow/block flash and other media for the current site (you can enable not only the flash plugin but many others here, including location, images, camera, notifications, javascript etc.)

 

If you used the plugins button in the past and things are looking strange, or you just want to know what's new:

Options:

This extension is quite simple -- it just adds a shortcut to the browser's toolbar. But there are some options available, in case you want to change it's behavior:

  • You can set the button to open the target page in new tab or in the current tab and,
  • Add the button to the context menu.
  • Select between 5 different icons to best fit your browser theme or choose your own icon (from the local hdd)
