Google's inviting people to support five worthy causes by counting and "donating" the tabs you open in Chrome. Everyone's total tabs will determine a charitable donation made on behalf of the Chrome community, up to one million dollars. Here's what your tabs can do:

Chrome for cause

  • 10 tabs = 1 tree planted
  • 10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
  • 25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
  • 100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
  • 200 tabs = 1 person's clean water for a year

Want to participate?

  • Get the Chrome for a Cause extension
  • Browse the web with Chrome between December 15 - 19
  • At the end of each day, you'll be prompted to click on extension to submit your tabs
  • Choose which charity you' like to support with that day's tabs -- you can always support the same charity, or pick a different one each day
