Quick Access To Chrome's Hidden Pages

Make a folder on Chrome's Bookmarks Toolbar. In there create these bookmarks. The fastest way to do this is to drag 21 links into that folder. It doesn't matter what links you drag in there. Then open the folder and right click each link and click on EDIT and replace the Name and URL with the info below.

I added a few JavaScript Bookmarklets that will make some of Chrome's internal functions easier to access. Like the Print Button, View Source In Tab, View Current User Agent, Find Chrome Extensions.

Name: Print Button
URL: javascript:print()

Name: Goog.gl This Page!
URL: javascript:window.googl_callback%20=%20function(response){if(response.error_message){alert("%20An%20error%20occured:%20"%20+%20response.error_message);}else{alert(response.short_url);}};%20var%20s%20=%20document.createElement("script");%20s.src%20=%20"http://ggl-shortener.appspot.com/?url="%20+%20encodeURIComponent(window.location.href)%20+%20"&jsonp=googl_callback";%20void(document.body.appendChild(s));

Name: View Current User Agent

Goog.gl This Page! will shorten the URL of the page you are currently viewing. It will show the shortened URL in a Windows Alert. To copy it press CTRL+A and then CTRL+C. CTRL+A is supposed to highlight it. You won't see it but it will be highlighted. The press CTRL+C to copy it. Then paste it wherever you want it.

"View Source In Tab" will display the HTML source code of the page you are currently viewing in that same tab. It was created by Justinsomnia.org. I have tested it in Chrome, Chromeplus, Chromium, Iron, Firefox and Flock Browsers. It does not work in Opera, Safari For Windows or Internet Explorer 7+

Thanks dmstromer for showing where the cache folder is. Here are other operating systems:

Windows Vista+ : %SYSTEMROOT%/Users/<user>/AppData/Local/Google/Chrome/User Data/Default/Cache
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Cache
Linux: ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Cache

(%SYSTEMROOT% means your default hard drive, C: on most PCs)
(~ means your home folder on Mac and Linux)
