Search bar clear button

A minor version up to SimpleUndoClose, SimpleUndoRecents, SimpleExtManager and Bookmarks by the Side.

Its mainly the addition of a clear button on the search bar. When you type something a "X" will appear at the right end of the bar. Pressing it will clear what you typed.

Came by suggestion by user cvvaroo.
I think someone requested it too.
Also updated Russian translation of SimpleUndoRecents, contributed by cvvaroo too.

Bookmarks by the Side already had it implemented, this update just improve the style of it  for dark mode.

SimpleUndoClose and SimpleUndoRecents also include HTML escaping for page titles to prevent XSS attack as reported by user 杀生丸子.

Applied 3 digit simplified version numbering too.

SimpleExtManager 1.4.6

A bug fix release.
This one is reported by user Travis McAlister.

Apparently the fix for the zoom bug implemented in back in 1.4.4 is behaving differently on systems with high resolution retina monitors. We had a bit of back and forth correspondence and found that out.

Anyway the bug is fixed and the update will be up soon.

SimpleExtManager 1.4.5

A small fix update.
Also decided to stick to a 3 digit version number as much as possible :P

This update changes a ES6 arrow function to maintain support with older Chrome versions, not encouraging users not to update Chrome but to acknowledge users that have to use older Chrome versions for reasons. Thanks to the user who brought this up.

Also fix the grouped indicator not showing when the options and uninstall options are unchecked. Something I forgot to add.

SimpleExtManager 1.4.4

Experiencing the zoom problem first hand made me revisit SimpleExtManager. Also made some changes and additions to make group management in the popup easier, I hope.

This update includes:
  • Fixed the sizing when global zoom is set
  • Fixed handling of "&" in group name when importing backup
  • Fixed group losing position after changing group name
  • Added extension count for groups
  • Added checking for new group names
  • Added grouped indicator in popup, hover over and wait for tooltip with info to appear
  • Added way to create new group in popup right-click menu, under "Add/Move to Group..."
  • Added way to delete group in popup right-click menu, right-click group name
  • Groups the extension is part of won't show in right-click menu
  • Made the group creation dialog in options taller

At the Opera side I see requests to have some function to hide what shows in the toolbar. Sorry that cannot be done by extensions as Chrome and Opera did not provide a way for extensions to do that. But you can still manually hide icons from the toolbar here.
