A Chromium Extension to open a new tab with the explanified version of a xkcd comic

It opens a new tab with the explanified version of a xkcd comic. It works by adding a new tab with the explanified link. You just press 2 buttons and you are good with your xkcd comic. NOTICE: This only works on actual xkcd comics and (as of now) doesn't work on mobile.

Here is Randall's explanation This means that you are free to copy and reuse any of my drawings (noncommercially) as long as you tell people where they're from. That is, you don't need my permission to post these pictures on your website (and hotlinking with <img> is fine); just include a link back to this page. Or you can make Livejournal icons from them, but -- if possible -- put xkcd.com in the comment field. You can use them freely (with some kind of link) in not-for-profit publications, and I'm also okay with people reprinting occasional comics (with clear attribution) in publications like books, blogs, newsletters, and presentations. If you're not sure whether your use is noncommercial, feel free to email me and ask (if you're not sure, it's probably okay).
