With cryptocurrencies suddenly turning every internet user into a seasoned stock market pro, the 'Piggy' extension makes it easier and quicker to get up-to-date information about how one's cryptocurrencies are performing. The extension, which is designed for Macs, shows users the value of the major cryptocurrencies that they own at the moment they check it and directly from the menu bar.

Considering the unprecedented volatility of cryptocurrency, many owners find themselves checking the value of the digital coins with frequency and alacrity. One moment the coins can double in value, and the next they can halve. Rather than having to open up a browser window or continually refresh, the 'Piggy' extension makes checking one's coins as simple as clicking the 'File' dropdown.

The extension shows the values of major cryptocurrencies (like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin) in USD.
