Giant Bomb Video Commander

I recently wrote a Chrome Extension, partially because I wanted to learn how one can be used to inject functionality into an existing website, and partially because I really wanted some functionality that wasn’t already on Giant Bomb. From this was born the Giant Bomb Video Commander! It’s a simple extension that injects some Javascript when there’s a video present, and adds keyboard controls for HTML5 video objects.

I’ve posted a GitHub repository of the source as well.

Chrome CSS3 Transform Crash

This crash only seems to occur on some graphics cards, and as far as I know, only on Windows, so I believe it has something to do with Chrome’s implementation of graphics acceleration.

Here’s a test page:

You should see a zooming, fading effect there. If you don’t see zooming, but you do see fading, then your browser doesn’t support CSS3 transform, transitions or both.

Safari doesn’t seem to have this problem.

If you experience a crash, it might be helpful for development folks to know which graphics card you’re using.
