    Hi Nathan,

    The reason for using an iframe is that chrome will not allow you to go through the serverside authentication flow inside the extension popup. Specifically you cannot redirect back to the extension popup after the user has authenticated. So it's much simpler to use an iframe for everything and completely ignore that it's running inside a chrome extension popup. Just build a regular webapp and iframe it into your extension popup.
