    Online monetization company Skimlinks has launched a new Chrome Web browser extension called Skimlinks Editor that makes it easy for website owners to see which partners throughout its network will pay the best commissions.

    Launched today, the Skimlinks Editor tool simply needs to be installed in Chrome and then accessed via the toolbar. Clicking it will pop up a little sidebar (shown below) indicating the level of referral a user will get for linking to a specific site.

    The system, which is primarily aimed at publishers and blogs already using the Skimlinks product, also integrates a real-time price comparison element too, so when they are shared on-site by editors, the site visitor will be able to compare prices from different merchants.
