I used a chrome extension to prank a friend. It was a lot of fun!
How often do you really get to use regular expressions?
Turns out, if you want to ruin a friends weekend and learn a thing or two about developing your own chrome extension, quite a bit.
As you’ll note in the tutorial, it’s also pretty easy to install. Just go into the browser extensions tab. Then click the developer tab. At this point, you can just drag and drop the source folder over. It’ll install and turn on the extension automatically.
So the prank was largely as follows:
- Hide folder full of code (which you can find here!) in friend’s documents.
Drag and drop folder in the extension tab.
Wait for your friend to google ‘League of Legends’ to find it replaced with ‘Timewasting Olympics’.
