A Yahoo! Mail App for Chrome

August 12, 2013

Both Gmail and Outlook offer an “app” for Chrome from which you can open your email. Since I use Chrome with the app page as my opening/new tab page, these are handy links.

For some reason, Yahoo!, a company with over 10,000 employees, cannot be bothered to create a Chrome app for their 250 million emails users, some of which besides me must presumably use Chrome (which has just under 20% browser market share).

Maybe this is low priority for them, but really, it takes 5 minutes. So I did it myself.

There, that’s better:

Google’s rules don’t permit me to submit this to the Chrome store because I don’t own the yahoo.com domain, so unfortunately if you wish to install it you must do so manually. Download it from here, open the extensions page in Chrome (Menu/Settings/Extensions), then drag the file from the file finder/explorer into the extension page.

If you see Marissa or Jerry, tell them I accept cash or check.
