Bingo Plugin Shutting Down, How You Can Keep It

The popular Chome plugin for Bing Rewards, Bingo is shutting down due to legal reasons according to the developers page.

Don't worry, as long as you have the plugin installed on your computer, it should continue to work. The only problem arises is if you remove the plugin from your computer and later want it back. If this happens, you can not simply go to the Chome Store, you will need to go to the source of the code and manually install the plug in.

1. Go to the source page of Bingo: https://code.google.com/p/bingo-chrome/source/browse/#svn%2Ftrunk%2Fextension

2. Download all 9 files and place them into a single folder on your Desktop.To do this click on the file name, on the right there is a link that says View Raw File, click this. If text shows up press Command + S or Ctrl +S on your keyboard to save the file. Do this for each of the nine files.

3. Open your Chrome Extensions by going to Settings > Extensions.

4. At the top right, there is a check box labeled Developer mode, check the box.

5. Now click Load Unpacked Extension.

6. In the box that pops up, select the folder where all the files are stored.

7. Click OK.

That's it, now you've got the Bingo plugin loaded. Keep the folder you created in a safe place in case you need it again.
