Default Photobucket Image Viewing Using Chrome

I'm using Imgur now, and am successful although the plethora of choices for links can be confusing as sometimes the one you think ought to work, doesn't, yet another does. Plus I still havn't figured out how to make an album so I can organise things better. However I'm sticking with it for now.

Now.... I never liked Google Chrome as in it's earlier days it would cause my computer to lock up and I had to delete it. I recently tried it again and it seems fine. The reason I tried it, is that more and more websites seem to lock up when I use Internet Explorer, yet they work fine with Chrome. I suspect it has something to do with the number and type of advertisements on some webpages.

Now that I am using it more, I have downloaded a Photobucket Hotlink Fix from the Chrome Web Store. It is free and takes only a second or two. After downloading, I checked a few old posts in a couple of different forums where I used Photobucket linked images, and I could see them all fine.

I can't see ever using Photobucket again, however it is nice to be able to see Photobucket pictures in old threads. The self-appointed Forum Police often get a little snotty telling you to use the "Search" function before asking a question already discussed. Well, if I do, and I find something relevant, it's nice to see images in the particular thread.

Here's a link to downloading plug-in, or extension, or whatever it actually is:
