Charitable Browsing With Google Chrome.

Chrome For a cause.
It is the holiday season and all of us look forward to be charitable, in our own ways during this festive season. Some time it is difficult due to financial matters or time restrictions. But this year, you have a friend along to help you to awaken your charitable nature. Just by "donating" your tabs that you open on your favorite browser, Chrome.
What? Chrome is not your favorite browser? then you are wasting your time on the internet, no you are wasting time, wasting time on the internet. Because Chrome is the fastest browser and it ia open source project and best of all it got Google's might behind it.
So how is this "donations" work? Pretty easy,  first of all you need the Chrome For A Cause extension, From today 15th to 19th browse the web with Chrome as you always do and just open tabs on your browser. Once you are done browsing for the day click on the extension to donate your tabs. Here you will be presented with five charities whom you want to donate your tabs.
Based on everyone's tab count, up to a million dollars will be donated to five causes that stand to make many people healthy, happy and educated. For all the tabs you open;
  • 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
