I just releases a Chrome extensions based on Voice Actions for Android ( It allows you to "control" the browser just by speaking.

After you click on the microphone icon you can speak any of these commands to perform a Voice Action on your browser:

* go to [website] – opens the website on a new tab
* map of [location] – opens a map of the location on a new tab
* bookmark [website] – adds the given website to the Bookmark bar (if no website is given it bookmarks the current page)
* new tab – opens a blank new tab
* settings – opens the Chrome Settings tab
* bookmarks – opens the Chrome Bookmarks Manager

Any other input will open a Google search with the word.

The extension is a quick prototype and is very rough in the edges, so, please, send me bugfixes and suggestions.

You can download it at:

Of course, you'll need a microphone connected to the computer ;)
