"Open with external application" (in dire need of a better name) is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser. It allows the user to select any executable and use links of the web pages s/he is browsing as a command line parameter when launching such executable.
The user might, for instance, decide to open a target URL in a different web browser.

Parts of the extension (namely the native NPAPI plug-ins that launch the external application) are taken from the SimpleGet Chromium extension.

The extension and its source code is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0.
