Hi all,

I'm now developing "discovery api[1]" shim using chrome extension's
"raw socket api" [2].
The current version of shim is roughly implemented and only support
UPnP M-SEARCH (it means mDNS and white-list xhr features aren't
implemented yet).

Here is a repository fot it :

Here is a demo site to check UPnP device via "discovery api" (M-SEARCH).
  http://upnp.komasshu.info/ (installation of the extension is required)

Please note that to try this extension and shim, specific version of Chromium
is required(I found r148782 works well). Because current Canary

I hope this library helps the progress of WI + SD works. I'll be appreciate
if I could have any comments and feedbacks :)
