SkyPe Rival Google Voice with Chrome Support

Google Voice is still restricted to its long waiting period, but if you're registered for Google's forwarding system the update to the Google Voice Notifier makes it a must-have. It brings both Google Voice ftures and some smartphone-style one-click powers to the Chrome browser for , Mac, and Linux.
The ftures themselves are not remarkable, but do bring Voice some parity with similar Skype ftures and add-ons. The extension makes phone s on Web sites callable via Google Voice by just clicking on them. You can place calls and send free text messages by typing any or contact name, and you can view the most recent messages you've received. The toolbar button displays the of unrd messages you've gotten and offers fairly quick access to recent messages and their transcripts.

Most phone s are clickable, but not all of them. For those that aren't, which includes s in Google Calendar, highlighting a phone will open the click-to-call pop-up. In the extension's Options menu, you can toggle the clickable s option and set which tab the toolbar button defaults to, or dctivate it entirely.

Voicemail playback isn't supported in the current version, although Google says that it's being worked on.
