Hi everyone!
I'm making a chrome extension that displays current page's url once clicked. I've got this so far:

  // Required
  "name": "Marker",
  "version": "1.0.11",
  "manifest_version": 2,

  // Recommended
  "description": "The ultimate bookmarking tool",
  "icons": { "32": "icon.png" },

  // Pick one (or none)
  // Add any of these that you need
  "browser_action": {
    "default_icon": "icon.png",
    "default_popup": "popup.html"
   "permissions": [
  "offline_enabled": false

<!--popup.html--> <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head></head> <body> <h1>Shuttlr</h1> <h2>Lol</h2> <script type="text/javascript">
        var pageurl = null;

        chrome.tabs.query({'active': true, 'windowId': chrome.windows.WINDOW_ID_CURRENT},
                pageurl = tabs[0].url;

        function write_result(needanurl){
    </script> </body> </html>

I even made the chrome function fire up another function because the extensions API is asynchronous. I'm still stuck. What do I do?

Not sure what you're trying to do exactly. Chrome's tabs show the page's url.
