So glad to hear that the Chrome for a Cause project did so much good during its short run – an amazing 60,599,541 tabs donated to charity! A total of $1 million dollars was donated to the charities, with the tabs and associated dollar amounts, as well the actual equivalent charitable items, shown by this graphic from the Google Chrome Blog:
Well done, Chrome Community! The especially good news in all of this is the possibility that the program will continue; they’re currently looking at new opportunities for future Chrome for a Cause projects!
So, keep your extension installed… and this awesome community can do some more good – soon, I hope – in 2011!
