You will also be provided links to resources to learn more if you want to create more customized extensions. This is a hands-on session. You will need a computer with Google Chrome installed (tablets won’t do it). Go to http://bit.ly/EXTHYPERDOC (you are prompted to make your own copy) OR¬†go to http://bit.ly/extensiontabs for a OneTab of all the links you need in one place.
