Feature: Game Extension & Bot (Automated Task)

Coowon browser is based on Google Chrome browser and is totally compatible with Chrome. Thus, the mechanism of Coowon browser extension is the same as Chrome's. To get started with Chrome extension, please refer to http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/index.html . Here we just cite the first sentence from this page: "Extensions are small software programs that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. You write them using web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS."

Based on Chrome extension, we have made the following enhancements:

  • Put your extension icon in dockbar.
  • If you add
    "coowon": {
    "location": "dockbar"
    in your manifest.json file, the extension will be shown in the dockbar of Coowon browser after you install it. The dockbar is designed for gamers so that they can control bots(Automated Tasks) more easily while they keep clicking on the game page for example.

  • Extension API enhancement.
  • Coowon added some new extension APIs on top of Google Chrome’s. You can record and simulate mouse clicks or key presses, make screen-shots and find small pictures in web-page. For developers’ guide, please visit Coowon Developer Center

    Bot (Automated Task):

    According to Mediawiki (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Bots): Bots are automated tools that can be used to perform tedious work or certain repetitive tasks.
    Those gamers who can make Chrome extensions contribute botting extensions on Coowon.com. They publish their apps in Coowon forum and if the app is rated as Good, Coowon studio will link it to Coowon app center. We don’t develop apps ourselves.
    How about it if I cannot find the extension I want and I don’t know how to write a Chrome extension myself? Well, you can ask someone to write it for you on Coowon botting forum or you can use the "Record & Play" extension to make a simple one to perform the repetitive work for you. You also can share your recordings with your friends if you like.
