Chrome extension for Diigo

UPDATED: Chrome's Extension subsystem keeps evolving. The latest changes break my extension and so I'll wait until Chrome is more stable before attempting to reissue this one.

I love the speed and sleeknest of Google Chrome but one thing that disappointed me was the lack of extensions. Now the wait is over: there is support for extensions in the developper release of Chrome.

Diigo's bookmarklet is nice but having to press the bookmarklet button each time I visit a site isn't much fun so I decided to package an extension for it: the extension is available here.

For those of you who do not know Diigo, one feature that distinguishes it from the other social bookmarking sites (such as Delicious) is its highlighting feature.
