Get Notified Via Our Chrome Extension already has one of the largest selections of downtime alert notification methods known to the website monitoring industry – but that does not mean we should relax and stop adding great ways to get the message to you that your website is down.

Today we are happy to announce the release of our Google Chrome extension. With the StatusCake Alert Extension you can instantly be notified if your site goes down – right in the browser.

The extension makes use of the StatusCake API so you will need to get your API Key from your account page to be able to use it – but once you are set-up you’re good to go.

For those who might be concerned about the privacy of a browser plugin – don’t worry.  We only get to see what you do on and quite frankly that is all we care about!

So how do you go about installing the Chrome extension? Well first make sure you are using Chrome – then just navigate your way towards the Chrome Web Store where you can download the extension for free.

We look forward to hearing your comments on the Extension and welcome feedback via the Chrome Web Store.
