Tag Archives: Chrome for a Cause
Chrome for a Cause is an extension created by Google that counts the number of tabs you open. They will make donations to one of five charities – your choice – based on this information.
10 tabs = 1 tree planted
10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
200 tabs = 1 person’s clean water for a year
The total contribution made by Google will be one million dollars. With your tabs, you’re basically helping to decide where the money will go. So for some holiday season goodwill, go ahead and install the extension. If anything, it will be interesting to see how many tabs I actually open.

NSS Labs has published a report saying IE is best suited to defend against malware even though they used Chrome 6 which is now old.
Please use Chrome for a Cause – the extension will donate to charity based on your tab usage until December 19.
