=== Installing Futon.crx ===

This should be fairly easy.

 1. Download [[|Futon.crx]] ~-(by clicking on it)-~.
 2. Make sure a Chrome window is open ~-(any window will work)-~.
 3. Drag 'n drop the `Futon.crx` file into that window.
 4. Approve
 5. Win

=== Installing it from source ===

Don't be afraid, it is not the Linux kernel.

 1. Download ~-(by clicking on it)-~.
 2. Unzip it ~-(and remember where you unzipped it)-~.
 3. In Chrome, go to `Tools` → `Extensions`.

 4. Click the `Load Unpacked Extension` button.
 5. Select the unzipped Futon directory.
 6. Win
