Better Web

it works like that, I was thinking about makin this chrome addon that loads custom made javascript and css into some well known sites being used daily by millions of people, now i checked it in the legal way and as long as you injecting those script on the client side with the client agree you all good, the possbilites are endless, imagine a server that contains thouands of "new features" for well known sites, those "features" will be synced across all the owners of BetterWeb (it will be offered for Free on the chrome store)

any way som of the features i was planning (and thats just a simple example) is:
a) google shows 10 results per page , a simple modification can make it possible to show 30 results in a 3 colum table sorted like this: 10\10\10
b) now imagine same upgrades for youtube,facebook,netflix,stackoverflow,google,downloading sites,ad sites and much more!
its pretty simple example but just to make you understand what it is all about

its about taking this "good upgrades" to some well known sites and bringing them to the world, you basiclly have control on every website on the client computer once they agree to install BetterWeb, and that control is completly legal if being used in a good way like my example

On the technical site this is how it will work:
1) user installs BetterWeb from the Chrome Store
2)user access random website
3) BetterWeb send the domain of that website to a remote server like so: demo.php?
4) the server returns the custom made javascript and css files
5) BetterWeb loads those files into the website!

and walla you have a it up and running, i was thinking on adding an option to choose each sites available upgrades on demand
for example you access google and you click on the BetterWeb Icon and that will allow you to "choose" the upgrades you want for this site

now what i will be responsible on hosting, paying fees, advertising, keeping updates, makin a donate scripts option and a developer api and much much more all hostted free on my free time for the cause of a BetterWeb (:

all i need is someone that can help me make that chrome ext basics..

anyone interested in helping me please ? (: -

no profit will be made*just fame and a better web!
