If you are a Manga fan, chance is that you visit websites like One Manga or Manga Fox regularly to read the latest Manga directly on those websites, or download them to the local computer system instead for offline reading.
Most sites do offer RSS feeds to inform their readers whenever a new Manga is being published, but if you don't use RSS at all, you may find another solution more useful.
It becomes slightly more complicated if you frequent several Manga sites and their releases as they can carry different Manga series which may make this a necessity.
Enter Manga Lover: The Google Chrome extension combines the Manga releases of 17 different Manga resources on the Internet, and displays them in an easy to access interface to the user.
The extension places an icon in the address bar of the Google Chrome browser, which when clicked on displays a list of the latest Manga that have been released. The list is ordered chronologically with the latest releases at the top.
A click on any release opens the site the Manga was released on. This usually lets you read the manga right on that site, or download it to your system instead.
It is furthermore possible to perform a search for releases you are interested in using the extension. It displays a custom Google search form underneath the release listing that you may use for that purpose.
The way the new releases are displayed is a little bit chaotic and options to filter new Manga releases would be nice (either whitelisting to only display specific Manga or blacklisting to block instead).
A user with enough energy could create a Yahoo Pipe that provides a better output with filtering options. But that would take some time and would be a more of a custom solution.
The Manga releases and news tracker can be downloaded from the Google Chrome profile page over at the Google Chrome extensions gallery.
Update: The Mange extension is no longer available for the Chrome web browser. An alternative is All Mangas Reader which keeps tracks of mangas that you are reading, informs you about updates, synchronizes your reading, organizes manga, and a lot more.
The only caveat is that it is not available on the official Chrome Web Store, but only directly on the developer site.
