Save Image As PNG


This extension is the same as the other two, except for a few additional features and bug fixes.

Key Features:

  • Context Menu Integration: Access the "Save Image As PNG" option by right-clicking on any image.
  • PNG Conversion: Convert images to PNG format before displaying the Save As dialog, ensuring compatibility with image editing programs and online hosting sites like Imgur.
  • WebP Compatibility: While WebP images are compact, they may not be widely recognized. Convert them to PNG for broader usability.
  • Low Footprint: The extension operates efficiently, consuming no memory or CPU unless activated via the context menu option.

Important Updates:

Summing It Up

You may wonder why the number of users and downloads differ so greatly if the extension's function remains largely the same. This is due to bad software optimization across different platforms, ease of use, and an overall better experience. When developers pay attention to their product and care about its performance, the software experience gets better. Developers who simply choose to ignore their buggy software eventually pay in low number of users.
