PLEASE provide a direct Chrome CRX Extension Download....
Since Google has apparently removed your "Easy YouTube Video Downloader Express v7.37" Extension "laglhpkadeejnkgdiphnegpajimagcld" from the Chrome WebStore! Could you PLEASE provide a direct link to the CRX file so that users who want it could install it manually? --Thanks again for all your wonderful work and efforts!
Google wants to control everything, they are not allowing local installs anymore – http://lifehacker.com/google-is-now-blocking-chrome-extensions-outside-of-the-1582147116. A better option is to use Opera which utilizes same chromium engine.

Hi Mr. VideDroid!
Thanks very much for the reply! However, I failed to mention that I never actually use the Native Google Chrome Browser but, primarily a very good Chromium "fork" called "SRWare Iron" (the Portable Version) which has been around for many, many years and is actively developed and updated (http://www.srware.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=18). It is much better regarding privacy, security, etc. and does not have the same enforced restrictions as Google Chrome.
I actually NEVER install extensions from the Chrome Webstore directly. Instead I've always downloaded the CRX files or their contents from the Webstore (via the "Give Me CRX" or "Chrome Extension Source Viewer" extensions) or preferably if available directly from the author/developer website. I then install only those extensions I trust manually in "Developer Mode" which is quite easy and provides better control, security and privacy if done properly. That is why I asked if you could possibly provide the CRX file or the contents. Your extension is excellent and I have installed it manually in the SRWare Iron Browser and a few other Chromium/Canary based browsers for testing, numerous times.
BTW, I totally agree with you about Google...
Would you please reconsider offering your extension as a plain download for those users who are able and want to install it manually?
This would greatly help all those users who are trying to workaround the policies, restrictions and controls the Google Chrome Browser and the Google Webstore are trying to force upon everyone!
Bypassing the Chrome Webstore altogether also allows developers to avoid the "registration" fees Google is beginning to charge developers to have their extensions approved and hosted on the Chrome WebStore.
