    I use Chrome and I have signed up on my home system and will be signing up at work also. I will also be opening LOTS of tabs.

    Probably being stupid (or overly cynical) here but *who* is actually donating anything? Web site says "Install the Chrome for a Cause extension and your web browsing will drive donations made to charities around the world." but it doesn't say who's actually giving the money or how much - it just talks about donating "tabs"

    From the 'Terms' button [from the extensions bar at the top of Chrome]


    Edit: Today's current tab count: 86.

    177 so far for me, went on a "google random thing and open every result in a new tab" binge.

    Not 100% sure how it works, with a million dollar limit I feel like its just letting people decide which of the causes their "tabs" go to.

    Anyone know when the "end of the day" is? i closed chrome and it didn't prompt me for my cause and cant see anything in the extension for it, Hoping they don't expect you to be on at xx:xx time of day.

    I have just contributed my 250 tabs worth from yesterdays browsing to the 'One Person's Clean Water' cause.

    Chrome notified me that I could contribute now and I just followed where the browser led me. Very easy.

    Slightly different, but as well as giving away money to charity, Google is also giving away "Chrome" chocolate :-)

    They've got a big advertising thing going on at Westfield, White City and they were handing out (quite nice!) chocolate tonight.

    Chrome For A Cause: The Outcome


    The donations will be made at the end of the year. You can keep the extension installed and, if so, it will notify you about future opportunities to work together with other Chrome users for good causes.
