With the Chrome extensions you can't actually charge any money yet, so I'm just doing it pro bono to help the users of the crappy website.

My flippant response would be to provide it to mozilla users where you are surely not charged. You didn't mention the site, so i don't know if you could just publish it there (surely that can be done with chrome extensions?) or just as a bookmarklet?

I could try that, thanks for the suggestions. The website is of the Dutch public transportation system, the part where you can view which trips you've made with your electronic travel card. It was designed completely from the viewpoint of the system, not that of the user. I.e.: Instead of seeing how much each trip costs, you see what got subtracted (a sort of deposit) when you checked in, and what you got back when you checked out. etc etc. Once I can publish the extension I'll write another post with the details...

Indeed, it sounds more like a way to verify an identity and having someone liable attached to the account.
