Life saver. As someone living in Germany, and using a US keyboard layout, but still having to type ü, ß and ä quite often, this extension is a life-saver. Thanks for making this.

ChromeOS's support for using accents in english is so ridiculously unwieldy that it's unusable ( ). Trying to type something like César's requires switching keyboards midflow. I am so so happy to have a functional alternative that allows me to show respect for the diversity of how we use the English language in real life.
