Overview

Detects Bitcoin microformat data in web pages. This is an ongoing project.

This extension will detect embedded Bitcoin addresses in the page, showing a Bitcoin icon in the address bar. Click the coin to view the page's Bitcoin address. Detects links and meta tags written in these styles: <a href="bitcoin:1NS17iag9jJgTHD1VXjvLCEnZuQ3rJEDGL">...</a> <link rel="bitcoin" href="bitcoin:1NS17iag9jJgTHD1VXjvLCEnZuQ3rJEDGL" /> <link rel="bitcoin" href="http://bitcoin.jonwaller.net/" /> --- Why link to a page, not embedding the address directly? Well, you can embed your address in every page of your site, a clean way of letting Bitcoin users know you accept Bitcoin, and if the address changes, you only need to change one file. Also, in the future, I'd like to use it as a base for sending money, it's a pain typing and sending money to "113oN6A93WnAiK2iKD4BpVMQyDY4fbGEay", so why not just send money to "jonwaller.net", with the Bitcoin address being taken automatically from the web site. --- Look at it in action on: Linked page style: - http://www.jonwaller.net/ Embedded address style: - https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/URI_Scheme --- Developers: Feel free to send me a pull request on GitHub. https://github.com/jonwaller/Bitcoin-Microformats

+1 to Charlie's comment. Actually almost all bitcoin clients install a bitcoin: protocol handler.

rather than an external HTML file containing the bitcoin address, why not use the pseudo-standard url: <link rel="bitcoin" href="bitcoin:1FWFiXPTuNwbBdR7jfymq7d2Mk3boTZ8VT" />
