I got tired from searching for song lyrics online while watching music videos on YouTube.
So I write this simple, yet extremely useful Chrome extension.

It’s called “Lyrics for YouTube™” and you can download it at the Google Chrome extensions gallery:
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/developer/detail/kggldhblikkmmnbkeococbeoaacgelkf

With one click of a button, the lyrics will appear right next to the music video, at a very natural fashion. This way, you have the playing music video and the song’s lyrics, in a beautiful side by side comfortable display.

Usage instructions – Click the extension’s icon and the song’s lyrics will magically appear right next to the video.

Background

Have you heard about Google’s latest service – Google Cloud Print?

It’s a cool service which allows you to print stuff from your home printer using any other computer in the world or even (and especially) mobile devices.

The service is still in beta, so right now you can only print through mobile devices with HTML5 compliant browsers which can access Google’s Gmail and Docs mobile version.
They claim that their next step is embedding this functionality in Chrome OS notebooks.

It kind of looks like they skipped over Google Chrome’s version.
That’s why I developed an extension for Google Chrome through which you may print using the Google Cloud Print service to any of your connected printers.

I encountered quite a few technical challenges while developing this extension. But I’ve overcome all of then and I’m proud to present the final outcome.
Everyone is welcome to download and study the extension’s source code.
