Getting Started: Building a Chrome Extension Extensions allow you to add functionality to Chrome without diving deeply into native code. You can create new extensions for Chrome with those core technologies that you're already familiar with from web development: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you've ever built a web page, you should feel right at home with extensions pretty quickly; we'll put that to the test right now by walking through the construction of a simple extension that will give you one-click access to pictures of kittens.

There are two ways in which you can run Python code: Directly typing commands into the interpreterGood for experimenting with the language, and for some interactive workTyping code into a file and then telling the interpreter to run the code from this fileGood for larger programs, and when you want to run the same code repeatedly While we are initially exploring the language we will use the interpreter interactively. How you start the interpreter will depend on which operating system you are using, but on a Mac or Linux machine you should start a terminal and then just type the command python.
