Edit: due to the chrome store requiring each update to be reviewed before publishing, big fixes may take a day or so.
@DonoldJTrump hey! Here you go, I uploaded the current release to Google Drive, but installing it this way will make it hard to update. I'd recommend cloning the GitHub repository and loading the unpacked extension. Anyways, here's the crx: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_2JUW2L2x1rPuoA_lx_Ek77klH0oHYxx/view?usp=drivesdk
Hey, I got a suggestion for the pop-up, you should make it so you can chat with replit users while you are on a different page, so you'd just press the extension, and you will be able to chat on another page.
Next up: creating a chrome extension that makes an entirely new browser and is better than chrome
On the other hand, I wonder if you can build a browser into a standalone WebAssembly thing (idk much about wasm yet) and run it in the browser. You can already run python in WebAssembly (google pyodide), but it doesn't have native support for virtual displays. If someone were to write a library that emulates a gui library but for pyodide... I might try that ngl
I downloaded the zip file and added the extension, but the 'ReplDM' option is not showing up on replit.
File not found.
It also loads but I don't see any direct messages (other people sent messages to me before). Maybe it's because I re-installed it?
Oh, wait... I just had to send a message then they appeared. Cool!
