urlNeXT, Google Chrome/Chromium Extension

Since Google announce their browser, Google Chrome, I use the browser for day to day. At first I still kept Firefox as default browser, but now it's already my default browser.
When I use Firefox, I have Link Widget to ease browsing some site that may have another page with the number in the url. But after waiting long enough, I could not find similar on Google Chrome. So why not I try to make it.

At beginning the differentiation from LinkWidget, is the method to get to the next page. LinkWidget primarily find link on the page to get the next url, and you can change that on it's preferences that it can guess on number exist in URL.
While at first, I'm just thinking to use the numbers on URL, so I started the feature with the change number on the url to go to the next page, and here the differ, urlNeXT allow you to choose which number on the url that you want to add or decrease to go to next or previous page.

After months, I find It may getting better if it does scan the page to find the next or previous url, make it much more similar to Link Widget on Firefox Extension.
