Hi,

I would like to help everyone, but I don't even have enough time to work on the Firefox's version as much as I would like so porting it to another browser is not in my future plans.

The add-on is opensource and licensed on GPL v2.0, someone else could port it (or even fully rewrite it, if Chrome doesn't work like Mozilla) to do the same thing on Chrome.

Last time I explored Chrome's extension API, it simply didn't have a powerful enough extension API to implement ASF. (Chrome's approach is essentially whitelist-based. Extensions can only do what the Chrome developers have explicitly decided is safe and written an API for.)

It's possible things have changed since then, but if Chrome still has no API to securely convert an HTTP request to HTTPS (the reason HTTPS Everywhere hasn't been ported to Chrome), the odds are even worse that it has an API for hijacking file-saving and getting the requisite filesystem access to implement the rest of ASF.
