This is a simple extension that adds a shortcut to the browser's Extensions page. When installed it will add Extensions button to the toolbar. Click the icon and you'll open the extensions tab.
There are two options available: you can set the button to open the extensions list in a new tab or in the current tab and, if you want, you can add/remove the shortcut from the context menu.
If you want to have instant access to your extensions right from your toolbar this is the tool -- fast, lightwight and efficient.
**Questions & Answers**
Why adding separate extension for something that needs only few clicks in the menu?
-- Because with the extensions button in the toolbar you’ll do it in one click, which is much faster :)
But extensions eat system memory, isn’t it stupid to waste resources just for quick shortcut to the extensions page?
-- This extension doesn’t “eat” memory. Technically, it uses non-persistent background page, which means Chrome doesn’t need to reserve memory for the extensions (check the Chrome Task Manager to see for yourself: when you click on the extensions icon it will start the extension, open the extensions page and release the memory used seconds after that)
Why not just use a simple bookmark to the extensions page instead of installing separate extension?
-- You could, but you’ll need more clicks to access the bookmark from the menu or you’ll need to have the bookmarks bar always visible. For people like me the bookmarks bar is not a good choice (it takes from the vertical space of the browser) and small toolbar icon is more convinient.
Is it easy to remove the extension if I don’t like it?
-- Yes, you can remove it with literally two clicks (just right-click on the extensions button and select “Remove from Chrome”)
How to access the options page?
-- Right-click on the extensions icon and select “Options”.
How to open the extensions page in the current tab instead of opening new tab?
-- Right-click on the extension’s icon and select “Options”, then uncheck the first checkbox
How to add extensions shortcut to the context menu?
-- Go to the options page (see above) and check the respective checkbox (“Add extensions button to context menu”)
How to change the extension’s icon?
-- Currently you can’t, but in the next version (coming soon) we’ll add this functionality
