We've launched the Independent news extension to the growing list of Chrome add-ons, as a way of keeping in touch.  So while browsing elsewhere, install this onto your browser and you'll get a lovely little eagle telling you that we've published more news stories, and a drop down menu so you can access them straightaway. Very clean, very simple and very elegant, it's another way of keeping in touch with your favourite news source. So download Chrome if you haven't already (that makes sense anyway) and download the only news extension around and let us know what you think.

Download the extension here.
