Quickly resolve digital object identifiers to their web destinations
Resolve DOI and ShortDOI codes through:
1) Extension button
2) Right-click on selected text (optional setting)
3) Omnibox with keyword: doi
Omnibox usage: Type doi and press the space key. Now you can input a DOI code and press enter to retrieve the web destination.
1) Generate QR codes which can be scanned by smart phones to share a publication
2) Automatically convert DOI codes on web pages into links (optional setting)
3) Specify your own DOI resolver URL (useful if your institution provides a proxy service)
4) Generate formatted citations for publications
This extension requires no special Chrome permissions. Some of the special features need extra permissions, but these have been made optional and are disabled by default.

Questions and Answers:
Q1) Can I get DOI Resolver to automatically resolve DOI codes when I enter them in the Omnibox?
A1) The Omnibox API from google prohibits extensions from hijacking input until a keyword is typed (in this case 'doi'). Really, it's better this way; otherwise, rogue extensions would all be fighting to take control of the Omnibox. A chrome developer commented on this (http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=38884#c7). It's up to google to support direct input of DOIs in the future.
