Convert Unix Epoch timestamps to human readable dates (and dates to timestamps) quickly and easily with Utime.

* Quickly convert timestamps and dates as you type
The extension by default automatically detects the type of data you are entering, and converts it accordingly (you can force your input to be treated as a timestamp or date if needed)
* Date values can be entered in almost any format
Examples: "January 1st, 2012", "1/1/12 12:00am", "Jan 1 2012 00:00:00", "Jan 1 2012 ", and "1-1-2012" will all be converted successfully
* Relative dates, such as "now", "today", "tomorrow" (and more) are recognized and converted into the appropriate timestamp
(Thanks to the excellent DateJS library)
* Convert timestamps/dates from the Omnibox
Type "ut" in Chrome's Omnibox (location bar) and press Tab to start interacting with Utime. From here, you can enter a date or timestamp and then press Enter to get the converted value in a prompt dialog.
* Convert timestamps/dates directly from a webpage via right-click
Select the text on the page you wish to convert, right click it, and open the the "Utime" menu. Click the appropriate conversion method and a prompt dialog will be opened containing the conversion output.
* Available Options
- Timestamp Unit
Timestamp values can be specified in either seconds or milliseconds
Allows a different base timezone offset to be used for conversions
- Input Date Order
Sets the extension to parse short format dates (i.e. "5.10.2012", "5-10-2012", "5/10/2012", ect.) as either month/day/year (western format) or day/month/year (european format)
- Date Output Format
Changes the date format of the output when converting a timestamp
- Time Output Format
Changes the time format of the output when converting a timestamp
- Press Enter from the input box to automatically select the output (if any), which then can be quickly copied via ctrl+c, ect.
- Pressing Enter while the input box is empty and either "Auto-detect" or "Date" is selected will automatically output the timestamp for the current date and time ("now")
* The input textbox's placeholder text will now change based on the input type that is selected
* Added a little padding to the extension's pop-up container as the ui controls were too close to the edges of the pop-up on OS X.
* Added another option to the Timezone select, "Local time (computer's timezone)", which will use whatever the computer's timezone is set to when performing conversions. This option is selected by default when installing the extension.
(Note: I added this due to the fact that manually setting your GMT offset has the pesky side effect of forcing you to change the offset whenever the selected timezone enters or leaves daylight savings time, or else the extension's output would be incorrect.)
* Added "Input Date Order" option
* Fixed a bug causing the omnibox and context menu features not to respect changes made in the Options during the same browser session
* Height of the extension pop-up now properly adjusts to fit the contents when changing tabs.
* Re-added and tweaked extensions's omnibox functionality from v1.x. Type "ut" in Chrome's Omnibox (location bar) and press Tab to start interacting with Utime. From here, you can enter a date or timestamp and then press Enter to get the converted value in a prompt dialog.
* Updated the error text displayed when a value cannot be converted
* Added back the feature from v1.x where pressing Enter while the input box is empty (and either "Auto-detect" or "Date" is selected) will output the the timestamp for the current date and time (aka "now")
* Added additional date output format options, "d.m.yyyy" and "m.d.yyyy", as well as two digit year variants for all the available shorthand date formats.
* Complete revamp of the extension, focused on increasing the ease of use, and allowing the user to better customize it to their needs through the additional options (base timezone, timestamp unit, ect.).
* Updated extension permissions (Removed several permissions that were unintentionally left in from a dev version, but are not needed).
* Added an Options page for the extension (accessible via either right clicking the extension icon and selecting "Options" or clicking the "gear" icon in the Utime pop-open window.
* In Options you can now set an Hour offset (positive or negative) which will be applied to all conversion results.
* Updated the Omnibox interface to the extension. Conversions done from the omnibox are now processed on-the-fly as you type and displayed directly in the suggestions dropdown box. Once you are finished typing a timestamp or date into the box, just hit the down arrow to select your desired conversion result.
* Added Shortcut: Typing "ut [Tab] now" in the omnibox will now give you the current timestamp.
* Updated extension icon
* Textboxes in the pop-open dialog now allow keyboard shortcut commands (cut, copy, paste, ect.)
* State of the pop-open window is now saved when closed and re-opened
* Clicking "Convert" for either the timestamp field or human date fields in the pop-open dialog when the fields are empty will now use the current date.
If there is any other options/features you would like to see, please let me know!
