Google Chrome Beta ‘context menu, omnibox, infobars API,’ Allows Adding Features To Context Menu

Developers can now use new “context menu API” in Google Chrome beta to register menu items for all or a subset of pages. Or to register menu items for specific operations, like right-clicking on an image or movie. If you’ve lots of extensions installed — Chrome automatically groups multiple menu items from same extension into a sub-menu.


Also, announced two new experimental APIs: » omnibox API allows to integrate with browser’s omnibox. And, you can build custom search support for your favorite website, keyboard macros to automate tasks, or even a chat client right into omnibox » infobars API allows to display infobars across the top of a tab. These infobars are built using normal HTML, so they can be heavily customized and interactive.
