If you want to visit Chrome Downloads Manager, there are 3 ways by normally:
1. Click the menu "Tools | Downloads";
2. Press the key "Ctrl + J";
3. Type "chrome://downloads/" in address bar.
However, pressing Ctrl+J is just so hard, clicking menu or typing commands takes a "long time", so I developed a simple extension for lazy man: Visit Chrome Downloads Manager directly by one click from toolbar. :) The first version of Chrome Downloads Extension was released on March 08, 2010. I released a major update this week.
Chrome Downloads Extension is a free plugin for Google Chrome browser and can be installed from Google Chrome Web Store. To install it, just follow the steps below:
Google Chrome automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser or the extensions is available. The update process happens in the background and doesn't require any action on your part. If you have installed Chrome Downloads Extension, the new version will automatically be updated within 24 hours. If you want to manually force update it right now, there is an article: How to manually update Chrome extensions.
If you have any suggestion about this extension, just leave your comments here.
