File this under 'so simple but so helpful'...

Android Developer Advocate at Google - Roman Nurik - has updated his handy 'Android SDK Reference Search'. The extension adds new functionality to the Chrome Omnibox (aka address box). Typing 'ad ' followed by the first few letters of a class name will bring up all matching class names in the Android SDK, allowing you to choose an item and navigate directly to the relevant Android SDK Reference URL on developer.android.com. Nifty. The extension also adds a '(view source)' link next to the SDK class name for class reference pages on developer.android.com which navigates directly to the relevant search results GitHub's AOSP mirror.

The extension itself is available in the Chrome Web Store (for free of course), and the source is available on Roman's GitHub

Although very handy this is quite old news, but good that you flagged it up. I would be lost without it these days.
