This extension re-enables the context menu.

Indeed, many sites prohibit the right-click on images, pretending to protect their content. I think it is illegitimate. 

Unfortunately, Google Chrome does not have advanced options for what javascript is allowed to do (on the contrary of Konqueror, Opera or firefox). If you think it should, please star (don't add a "me too" comment) 

In the meantime, this extension provides a workaround, by resetting the oncontextmenu to its default behaviour on many elements of the page. Oh, as a bonus, it works for Flickr and Youtube html5 videos too!

If a site is broken by the extension, please report it in the bug tracker, not in the comments.

However, a nice comment is always welcome :-)

Risk impact

Allow Right-Click requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Allow Right-Click if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Allow Right-Click has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
