UbiChr is "Ubiquity for Chrome" - a revived command line interface that brings lots of useful command shortcuts.

In particular, you can:

  • Open a command-like window to execute commands with arguments and preview the results (default Ctrl+Space shortcut must be set manually)
  • Open new tabs and pass GET or POST parameters (on appropriate command execution like Wikipedia search, dictionary lookup, text translation, etc.)
  • Fetch data via AJAX, process it, and display it on the extension popup preview (for example: IMDB movie lookup, currency converter)
  • Alter current pages (highlight keywords, invert or remove colors)
  • Add your custom JavaScript commands via a built-in editor in a syntax similar to the original Ubiquity project
  • Utilize powerful features of the Chrome extension (inject scripts, access cookies, use alarms, bulk save and zip URLs, filter opened tabs for text or links, ...)
  • Share your commands via GitHub Gist

NOTICE: The Ctrl+Space shortcut may need to be manually reassigned in the Chrome add-on management dashboard in order to be used. To do that, use the chrome://extensions/shortcuts URL.

Brings the greatest extension from FireFox (that Mozilla no longer allows) and puts it on a modern browser. Great! Ubiquity basically gives users powerful command line access to the internet. Lovely. Allows creation of custom commands, as well.
