About Chrome support

This extension cannot be released on Chrome webstore because of the Spam Policy.
Specifically this rule was mentioned during the review: Functionality: Do not post an extension with a single purpose of installing or launching another app, theme, webpage, or extension. Extensions with broken functionality—such as dead sites or non-functioning features—are not allowed.



You can hide some services/icons just put a check in the relevant field in the “Services” section.

In the same section, you can also change width and height of the share window (for every service), so the windows opened when you click on the relevant icon, and you can change the position/order of services too.


You can hide the PageAction icon (so the shortcut shown in the address bar) - just put a check in the field contained in the “PageAction” section.

Keyboard shortcut

The PageAction can be triggered via Ctrl+Alt+y (resp. Cmd on macOS) from keyboard. Think of the share icon. The modifier keys prevent collisions.
