      Yes, that’s certainly possible. For example, see the Search our forums box on the right side of this page.

      What we don’t know is if you can do it yourself or that you need to hire someone to make it for you.

      Step 1: Setting things up

      The first step is to create a manifest file named manifest.json. This is a metadata file in JSON format that contains properties like your extension’s name, description, version number and so on. In this file we tell Chrome what the extension is going to do, and what permissions it requires.

      For the movie extension we need to have permission to control activeTab, so our manifest.json file looks something like this:

      { “manifest_version”: 2, “name”: “RaterFox”, “description”: “The most popular movies and TV shows in your default tab. Includes ratings, summaries and the ability to watch trailers.”, “version”: “1”, “author”: “Jake Prins”,

      “browser_action”: { “default_icon”: “tab-icon.png”, “default_title”: “Have a good day” },

      “chrome_url_overrides” : { “newtab”: “newtab.html”},

      “permissions”: [“activeTab”]}

      As you can see, we say that newtab.html will be the HTML file that should be rendered every time a new tab gets opened. To do this we need to have permission to control the activeTab, so when a user tries to install the extension they will be warned with all the permissions the extension needs.
