Works as advertised Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension does exactly what it says. It puts a little "G" in the bottom right hand corner of your browser, that when clicked opens up google in a new tab.
The code is concise and well written.
The reason I gave this a 7 is because it doesn't really add any new functionality. You can get the exact same functionality by creating a google bookmark in the bookmark toolbar and middle clicking on it (which will open it in a new tab). Therefore, the only reason to have this extension is if you have hidden your bookmark toolbar for some reason, or if you only have a two button mouse (and can't middle click to open in a new tab).
Also, I believe that the Google logo is trademarked/copyrighted/whatever, and that you have to have written permission to use it. You may want to look into this if you have not already (and perhaps make your own little blue "G" image).
