I would like to use chrome instead of firefox because of his synching mechanism, which in firefox is quite faulty (only bookmarks are imported, a big problem 'cos I need extensions too).

I managed to make chrome really similar to firefox with plugins and things like that (I asked it in my previous question: How to turn Google chrome into firefox clone ).

However I'm missing an important thing: I need to bind in some way (changing the source code of the plugin or using anything else) CTRL + B to "click" to an icon in the plugin bar (basically I have to show the dialog that pops up when you click on that icon).

How to do it? I can write javascript/html/css code (but I would like to avoid to reimplement the whole plugin), any suggestion?

Here is a screenshot of the icon that I need to click:



The plugin is Neat Bookmarks.

As Matchu stated on the Stack Overflow question, this is not doable.

  • This is indeed possible on Windows using AutoHotkey. I will post a solution later today. :)

  • I know autohotkey but this is a software that is external to google chrome. I want something internal to the browser itself, a script or something similar, as stated in the question. Feb 3, 2012 at 17:24
