When I launched chrome today, I got a message stating that the iGetter extension was disabled because it does not exist in the chrome web store and was installed by a third party. Chrome will not allow you to re-enable the extension and there is no igetter extension in the chrome store to re-add it.

Due to a new security restriction, Chrome stable and beta versions for Windows disable any third party extensions. Google developers have decided to allow them only in Chrome canary/dev builds as well as Chromium. Since Google plan to remove plugin support as well, we should search for a new way to integrate iGetter with Chrome and then we will consider publishing iGetter extension on their WebStore.

Currently, the workaround is to install Chrome canary build or Chromium stable (both may be used along your current Chrome version).

Chrome Canary build is available here:

Finding a stable Chromium build requires some more steps:
1. Use the following webpage to find the current stable Chrome version (current stable for windows is 260298):

2. Navigate to Chromium builds listed here:

3. Browse the Win folder, then find folder 260298 and download file:

4. Finally, unzip the file and start chrome.exe. The result is that the same stable Chrome build allows third party extensions

If you want iGetter to intercept aromatically download links, you need to copy Plugins folder from the Chrome folder (C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application) to the unzipped above chrome-win32 folder of Chromium. Then navigate to "chrome://plugins/" (without quotes) and check "Always allowed" option of the "iGetter Plug-in".

Chrome Extension for Chrome

According to Google the developer has to register their extension with Google for a once only fee of $5.

Publishing the extension on Chrome Web Store has a big drawback, you can only use the last software version with the last published extension. In other words, if for some reason you want to use your current app version (i.e. a paid upgrade appears) the published extension may not work, because it may not be compatible with the older app version. Google has no solution for this problem yet.

In addition, Google will not publish on their Chrome Web Store, extensions that use NPAPI functionality (which iGetter extension currently uses).

iGetter v2.7.2 adds contextual menu support for Chrome 28 and later. iGetter extension was reworked and it's now published on Chrome's WebStore. When you enable "Add Contextual menu support for Internet browsers" option (at iGetter options, Integration panel), Chrome will download and install iGetter extension automatically. You only need to enable it when prompted in Chrome. If you want to disable iGetter extension just turn off iGetter "Add Contextual menu support for Internet browsers" option. See:
