Hi All,

Before Christmas I put together a Google Chrome Browser Extension for
viewing CSV files directly in the browser using Recline:


I've now used it successfully for a few weeks (and others have too) so
it is functional.

I'd love to hear any feedback from anyone trying it out - especially
if you encounter problems or have suggestions for improvements (either
on-list or via issue tracker - see below)!

This was my first Chrome extension and while fully working there are
many improvements that can no doubt be made such as:

* Handle all CSV files (those with mimetype text/csv) not just files
linked with extension .csv
* Better handling of large files
* A firefox version (@nigelbabu :-)!)

Source code and issues can be found on github here:
