Hey all!
I have been very busy this evening writing a Chrome extension. Now it is relatively simple, so what it allows you to do is click an R1 logo (in the extensions zone) to launch a new tab showing the Netduma config page. So now your interested how do you install it? Rather than babble on I am going to leave the steps below and then some quick notes about future plans.
 
Steps:
 
1) Please read the bottom of the article now! I have made some updates. You can now download an official version form here: 
 
For custom installs:
1) Download the .crx file, this is the actual extension file. I had never heard of .crx before doing this     
    project but I can promise you it is not malicious.
 
2) Move the .crx file to your desktop. This isn't required but will make the next steps a bit easier.
 
3) Open a new chrome tab and enter:  chrome://extensions/    
    This will open the Extensions management page. 
 
4) Now move the Chrome window to a position where you can see it and the .crx file on your desktop. Now all you need to do is drag the .crx file onto the Chrome page.
 
5) Release your cursor and a confirmation box will pop up asking if you want to add it. Click add and that is it!
 
6) You will now see a Netduma logo in the top right of your Chrome page with your other extensions. If you click it a
    new tab will be launched opening the Netduma configuration page.
 
Plans:
 
So eventually I would like to publish this to the Chrome store for more easy use. Can either Iain, Fraser or anyone from the Netduma team message me regarding permission to do this, alternatively I am happy for you to publish it as long as I am given some form of recognition :) Done it!
 
If you have any questions please leave them below! Hope this helps!
 
Update:
So... I sorta jumped the gun a bit and published it! It's available here for download through the Chrome store:

Only problem with this so far is I use google chrome (stable versions) and it will automatically disable this extension because it is not from the Chrome Store. If you want people to use it, I would add it to the chrome store asap because as of now I cannot use this extension, chrome will not even let me enable it again.

I am not aware of this, I have tried it and I use the current stable version. If you have any issues you can navigate to the extensions manager and check the box for developer-mode. This should work! And that is the plan :)

Ok, I have published it to the Chrome store. Sorry Iain/Fraser if this is a problem ;) I see no issues but I will happily make any change if it is required! It is currently processing but it will be available here:

Ah great! Thanks Fraser! I was wondering if an admin could possibly pin this so others can use it rather than it slide into the thousands of other posts :)

Pinned. Also to clarify, we're absolutely fine with it being published on the Chrome store as long as it is safe - which I assume it is :)

Drag and drop http://r1/on to bookmark bar > instant profit / no third party extension needed

That is one way of doing it, however I think the chrome extension looks better as you have the logo, it is permanently there and it doesnt get confused amongst bookmarks!
