This is the first version of HTML Validator extension for Chrome. It checks the code, syntax, of your HTML 5 pages.

HTML Validator for Chrome is a browser extension that adds HTML validation inside Developer Tools of Chrome. The number of errors of a HTML page is seen with an icon in the browser status bar. The details is seen in the developer tools.

The extension is based on HTML Tidy. The algorithm was originally developed by the Web Consortium W3C. The algorithm is embedded inside your browser and makes the validation locally on your machine, without sending HTML to a third party server.

HTML Tidy is a helpful program that tries to help people to correct their HTML errors. It finds HTML errors and classifies them in 3 categories:
* errors: HTML errors that Tidy cannot fix or understand.
* warnings: HTML errors that Tidy can fix automatically
* (optional) accessibility warnings: HTML warnings for the 3 priority levels defined in W3c WAI

There is also an automatic "Clean up" button that will do his best to propose you a cleaned version of your page, without errors.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
