Google recently made a new extension available for its Chrome browser. Once installed, the new extension adds a button to the toolbar, which displays the number of unread messages in a user's Google Voice inbox. The extension also provide users with access to their most recent messages with transcripts; lets them initiate calls and send text messages; and lets users call phones numbers embedded on web sites by clicking on them. The extension is free to install. It will work with the Windows version of Chrome, and the beta Chromium builds for Macs. It won't support the official beta of Chrome for Macs. Google Voice works with a number of smartphones, including Android handsets.

Calls from browser?

Does this mean that it is a voip, or will it just dial your linked phone when you go to make a call like it does from the website?
i'm pretty sure it will be just like doing it from the website. just makes it quicker to have a toolbar i guess.
