Work well but I'd prefer to have the open in Chrome in a left click menu on the tab. Give more space in the tools box even if I do not need it now.
Don't really understand what you mean. If you head over to the support thread, then we can discuss your concern.
If your comment pertains to having to hunt through the tools menu to trigger the addon, then do note that there are shortcuts configurable in the preferences panel for just this reason. If otoh. your remark is that it clutters up the tools menu, then you can disable that as well in the prefs panel.

Thank you for developing.
I found a bug.
The context menu of this add-on appears when pressing right-click on a link.
Open In Chrome 1.5.3
added: configure specific websites to directly open in chrome Rated 4 out of 5 stars
If it canbe configured to open a group of website(s) directly in Chrome even if you try accessing them from Firefox.
For instance, you may add “yahoo” to the list and any site that has yahoo in the URL would open in Chrome automatically. That includes “maps.yahoo.com”, “news.yahoo.com”, “yahoo.com”
Unable to open in Portable Chrome Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Nice extension. Works if Chrome is installed. Will not work if the Chrome is a Portable version (already pointed to the executable file under Options).This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
It should, you just need to browse for the executable from the preference panel, or enter the absolute path to it.

Works as advertised. I wish it had the context menu setting selected from the start, but that's just a quibble.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).

Exactly what I needed, thank you. I use it because since adobe stopped supporting Linux I have issues with some flash videos in Firefox. Now I just open them in ChromiumThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Good but needs more Rated 3 out of 5 stars
works as described - BUT- would like be able to assign specific website to ALWAYS open with Chrome like IE Tab2 does.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
Excelent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's a pretty neat extension. It does what it says, it works, it is simple. The integration with GNU/Linux and particularly Ubuntu is great.
I would like to see two things in future releases: 1) allways open some domain with google chrome (e.g. chrome store, gmail, etc) 2) An icon customization would be awesome. :)
Cheers and keep it going, great work!

Has many options when and how to open Chrome, like ALT+mousebutton, or just the button in your addonbar if you chose to. Works great.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
User Interface Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I used ie-view from ff's version still in lower single digits, and it has an context menu entry in the client area of the active tab.
Although this "Open In Chrome" functions like ie-view, but I have hard time finding it, let alone uising it. Because I'm used to the context menu interface, and "Open In Chrome" has no context menu entry!
Off the topic, nothing personal:
I think this mozilla ff has one ultimate goal: to provide a seamless and convenient interface to the user, no matter how complex the addin components structure is (for a tolerable one at least!). I used to be, and still be a keyboard guy, meaning that I'd rather use keyboard strokes to achieve a objective than mouse movements+clicks. Through the years, mozilla ff has made me believe to an extent that other than the shortcut-keys, the right-click of the mouse will bring up a whole lot of goodies.
There is a catch here: most authors of the addins (I chose to add) have a dangerous assumption that the users will activate the addin (functionality) through a right-click of the mouse, or at least looking for it on the Tools menu! So they forget to write this most important part on the description.
As a seasoned used of ff, I was trained through trial and error to think and do this way, but for a green user, this is definitive not the case. Think of this nail-biter situation: hmmm... no sign whats so ever of the brielliant addin I've just downloaded, did I do it right or something went wrong...
My point is:
Can the top brasses of the foundation or ar least of the development groups make a mandate that there must at least be a terse textual description on the home page on how to activate the addins, not just a bunch of (low res) poor screen captures with annotation, or open a web page guide on the inital successful activation and the every following update activation.There are many ways to get an addon doing its purposes, how 'bout trying the most convenient, obvious and common ones.
It does have a context menu, but it's not enabled by default.
In the third screenshot depicting the configuration window, there is a checkbox labeled "Show in Context menu".
You activate the configuration window per the Firefox imposed standard; Tools -> Add-ons and click the Options button on the addon you want to configure.
The best! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have 2 monitors. Often in my work I have to open tabs in chrome (which opens on 2nd monitor) while 1st page is still opened on 1st monitor in Firefox.
And this is the one extension which gives an ability to do it.
Using middle and left click is not convenient – tab opens also in Firefox. I use “shift and right click” and it’s very convenient in my work!
It's now done and submitted to Mozilla for review.
As usual you can grab the latest version immediately if you're too impatient to wait a month or so for the approval process.

Not quite as hoped Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I'd only really use this for opening one FF tab in Chrome. For some reason, I thought this would open Chrome if it wasn't already opened, but it doesn't. It only seems to work unless you have Chrome already open. That defeats the object for me as I rarely have the two browsers open at the same time.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (18.104.22.168-signed).
The addon simply triggers the default behavior for your machine when the Chrome program is called with a URL as an argument, same as if you were to drag-and-drop a URL on the browser's icon or call the program directly with a URL argument from the command line. Nothing fancy, advanced nor exotic in other words. For a freshly installed machine running OSX, Windows XP/7 or Ubuntu the default behaviors on those platforms is to launch Chrome if the browser isn't already running and for Chrome then to show the page(s) you wanted to migrate to said browser. If Chrome otoh. was already running, only new tabs for the migrated pages would be opened (Google's default behavior), with the caveat mentioned on the addon's front page and also in the accompanying release notes. ______________________________________________________________________________________________
If the above isn't the behavior you're experiencing, then I'd wager something is off with your OS / chrome configuration, or perhaps some anti-virus program on your system is interferring. You can verify if the expected behavior is encountered or not by having Chrome closed and then on a command line (Terminal/Shell or Console) issue: [ chrome "<a URL>" ], such as [ '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe "http://www.google.com" ] if using Windows 7. Please follow the support site link, activate the tracing described in that page and post the trace output on that page as well. There I will try to help you figure out why the addon isn't working as expected on your machine.

This addon is actually great. Very helpful. I use Firefox for my large bookmarks set and main addons (slower), and Chrome for YouTube and such - so this button comes in handy.
I think the opposite would be great too - an addon for Chrome to move active tab(s) over to Firefox.
serves it's purpose...but I dont understand the purpose Rated 3 out of 5 stars
"The intended use case is when you suddenly realize you have more tabs opened in Firefox than the browser can handle without slowing to a crawl. Chrome has no problem handling a lot of tabs and as such is better suited for managing a lot of them."
Statement is completely false. AFter opening the same 5 tabs on both browsers, with 20 add-ons on FF and 0 on Chrome , Chrome is using 40% more ram and is noticably slower. Firefox has a built in feature that disables tabs when you open the client until you click that said tab. Thus, restarting firefox when a slowdown happens is good enough to stop slow down with that feature.
If you don't have an issue with Firefox slowing down or need to move tabs from FF to Chrome, then this addon isn't for you. It's nice to hear you have no issues with Firefox and that it satisfies your browser needs...
Good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like that it works very well, in Ffx 15.0.1. And I like a toolbar button for such things. It's just that the tooltip for this button is a little odd: "...(unless you have remapped the triggers)." Really? I'd rather not have any tooltip other than the add-on's name. Not this confusing text reminding me of the default triggers, which yes, I have changed as per the options.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124-signed).
Thanks for the feedback, and sorry for responding so late.
I'll make the change, as I agree the text is redundant after you've read it ONCE :)

Nice app !!
Would it be possible to open "Chrome" in a FireFox tab ? In the same way that "IE Tab" works with Internet explorer in a Firefox Tab, it should be very very nice, thx !!! : )
Unfortunately not. Chrome isn't embaddable like IE :(
That's why you haven't seen any addons trying to do that.

Doesn't actually work with FF 3.6.
Selecting it does nothing, bit I think the issue is locating the Chrome executable. The 'Browse' button doesn't work in the preferences, and manually entering the location gives me red text.
Be nice... if it worked for me.
Edit: Using FF 3.6.27 and the latest version available. The "Browse" for Chrome still doesn't work, and like I said, nothing happens whether the red is informative or not.
If you still experience problems, could you please enable the trace option in the preferences window and pasting the output as a comment on the support page?
If the browse button doesn't work, that's real odd. Can you enter the path by hand in the text field? The addon will launch whatever you put in the text field for the executable.
FF to Chrome Rated 4 out of 5 stars
A very handy add-on: two clicks and you're in another browser. FF tends to slow down when numerous tabs are open in the previous versions; creating this add-on to "transport" that additional load to Chrome is a great idea. LOL.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
