Summary

Changes the window size to be a non-maximized ("restored") window that fills the current monitor's available workspace.

I wrote this so I could go from a maximized window to a non-maximized (but still 'full screen'-sized) window state with one click.

My motivation was that the tab-bar in Chrome is at the very top of the window, and I run Winamp in Windowshade mode along the top edge of my desktop which blocked access to the tabs - by entering a non-maximized state the tabs are pushed-down and become accessible again.

A word on permissions: this extension needs to run content-scripts to access the window.screen object which is not currently exposed through the Chrome Extension API. Because the activeTab permission does not apply to the Chrome Start Page (which is under google.com) it needs permission to run content-scripts on google.com.
