Weblin Helper Chrome Extension

One of the changes, which Google introduced with Chrome Version 29 made Chrome incompatible with weblin. In other words: no weblins with Chrome 29.

A new Chrome extension in the Google Web Store corrects this. The extension adds weblins back to Chrome.

The extension is not yet included in the weblin installer. It must be installed manually with 2 steps:

1. Add the Chrome extension from here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/weblin-helper/cedamdmlplebpfigaldiimmbdkdcopeb

2. Add these lines to the file "Browsers.sreg" in the weblin program folder (e.g. with Notepad):

"Name"="GoogleChrome 29"
"MainCaption"="Google Chrome"

The extension will be included in the weblin installer later.
