Is there a TIFF viewer extension for Chrome, I found AlternaTIFF, but cannot make it work in chrome. I am trying to view images on the website.

Tried suggestions here also, no luck

AlternaTIFF is inaccessible for me, so I can't try it out - but, does it work in IE? If so, you can use IE Tab to make USPTO links open in IETab – Sathya Sep 3 '11 at 19:10
IE is a swear word to me, might have to though. – Moab Sep 4 '11 at 3:35

Figured out a workaround, Install AlternaTIFF for IE, then install IE Tab for Chrome, navigate to the TIFF page in chrome then click the IE tab button, wahlah, you can now view USPTO TIFF pages in Chrome!

Got the idea from this page, but Black Ice costs $$, so I figured maybe it will work with AlternaTIFF for IE, and it did.
