Launches Kindle cloud reader in a new, pinned tab.
This is a free companion app for Kindle Cloud Reader (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/icdipabjmbhpdkjaihfjoikhjjeneebd?hl=en-US). You don't need to have cloud reader app previously installed in order to use this extension. It adds an icon in the browser toolbar for an easy, one-click access for launching Kindle cloud reader. Upon clicking the icon, it creates a new pinned tab to open https://read.amazon.com. If the reader was previously opened in the browser, clicking the icon brings the tab to the front for reading.
I wrote this because I found it cumbersome to access the app either from the application shortcuts area of an empty tab or from the desktop. Too much work for such a simple thing. Then I thought why not share it with all other Kindle lovers out there? So, here we are.
Please do assign star rating to this extension, as you like it. Click on the +1 button if you like using it. Share with your friends and family. Enjoy :-)
