Yes, most of the demos in existence today rely on Chrome extensions. That is because Chrome does not currently support registration through <intent> (unless that has changed recently) and the shim script tends to be a little buggy (which shouldn't be surprising considering what it's doing).

If you get one of those extensions, you can look at the "intents" attribute in the manifest file. That ought to give you all the information you need to perform a conversion.

May I ask which browser you are looking into this for?
