Cloudboard: Share text between computers

When I received my CR-48 (read: Chrome notebook), I instantly noticed a need for a shared clipboard between my computer and the CR-48. I downloaded Google's Web Clipboard, however, it took a while for the pastes to appear on both machines and I had to sit and wait for it them to load. So I made my own extension that simplifies the process and allows you to share any type of text right from the context menu. Cloudboard was born.

Install the extension, login via Google to the Cloudboard site and get your token, then start sharing. You can right-click on images, urls, pages and text to share with your other computers and all you have to do is click on the clipboard next to the address bar to see a list of your pastes. If you want to refresh, hit the refresh button, or just open the popup again, it is updated instantaneously with your other Chrome installations.


Feel free to leave any comments that you have. I will be working on notifications, so you can be automatically notified when a new paste exists.

Thanks,
James Hartig
