I thought Joshua's idea of "... is following you" was so clever that I spent a good part of my day working on this extension to do just what he outlined; that is, show a small icon when the dribbbler you're viewing is following you.
v1.0 Technical Notes:
- Currently works on 'shots' pages only. Not profiles yet.
- The 'follow' status is cached (12 hrs) so as to avoid hammering the API if, for example, you view several shots from the same user in a short period of time.
- The more people a user follows, the longer this takes to run, this is because dribbble's API only allows you to request 30 at a time.
- There's no options page or interface icon yet. You can disable/enable it from the chrome://extensions page.
- Original idea & Icon design credit goes to Joshua, thanks mate!
I'm open to any feedback or feature requests. Let me know!

Freaking awesome, thanks!
Would be nice to have this in a form of Firefox add-on. Just sayin'.
the download link isn't working :(
Holy moly, this is awesome! Thanks, dude!
@Jonathan: Thanks! Glad you like it.
@Alex: Perhaps when I have more time. I don't imagine it would be too hard to port over.
@Aaron: Try it again. If you still have no luck let me know and I can email it to you.
@Joshua: No problem man! Thanks for the inspiration.
this is nice thanks
Well done, man!
Awesome idea, thanks for the extension!
how did I ever manage to miss out on this. thank you, sir. you are a gorilla!
WOW!!! You are amazing! Just installed and it works fine on the RockMelt browser! Thank you!
Now that Lion is out, it has made me switch to Safari out of the new awesomeness (feature wise). Being that this was one of the most useful plugins for me on Chrome, I would love to see a port to Safari. Thanks again for the work you have done ;)
Thanks for the love guys!
I've put the extension on GitHub:
When I have more time I would love to port it over to Safari and Firefox. Safari would be a lot easier since the extension architecture is very similar to Chrome.
Why it's not working now? Using Mountain Lion and Chrome 23.0.

@Tanveer Junayed : Thanks for your interest! I'm guessing something has changed to break the extension. Fortunately the supremely talented @Alex Pankratov has a much better version of this extension available here: http://dribbble.com/shots/753356-isFollower — let me know if that works for you.
keyboard shortcuts: ← previous shot → next shot L or F like
