LinkIt [Chrome Extension]
And that would be my first extension for Google Chrome/Chromium :)
As i'm have been using FireFox -and still using it- for a long time, getting used to double clicking text -non activated- links to be opened in another tab using the FireFox plugin Text Link so i don't have to go into the process "Select" - "Ctrl + t"- "Ctrl + v" + Enter to navigate to that link you just go and double click the plain link to open it in a new tab or an email to open the default mail client
Features are to be added in future updates God willing, so u should install it from the chrome extensions gallery to ease the updating process from here.
