A Web Intent service to download files from the open-access HTTP directory of TCGA.
NOTE: Support for Web Intents was removed in Chrome 24, so this app will not work anymore. It is kept on the Chrome Web Store for historic reasons only.
TCGA.intent enables you to download files from the open-access HTTP directory of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) from within the browser—without using or maintaining a proxy server. TCGA.intent uses Web Intents, a service discovery and light-weight RPC mechanism for Web apps.
