A chrome extension would still need a local server (or something of
the sort), as chrome extensions can't actually launch processes or
otherwise interact with the host system. So then you'd need a chrome
extension *and* a web server (see
for an example extension that does exactly that).

I still think there ought to be a better way than a local web server,
but I'm not seeing it...
