Summary

URL Hotlink Conversion

Behind the scenes conversion of html-embedded images to the image itself when browsing within Chrome.

You no long need to wait for imgur to stop giving you 503 (heavy load), and quickmeme's fatty html from clogging up your experience, this extension will immediately direct you to the image content right away!

example:
http://imgur.com/3TJkV -> http://i.imgur.com/3TJkV.jpg
http://www.quickmeme.com/meme/3q3uah/ -> http://i.qkme.me/3q3uah.jpg

Currently supports imgur and quickmeme.
