What extension is needed for the Link Helper file?

I followed the instructions as best as I can to download the Link Helper file but I do not know what file type the file should have for Chrome to identify it as an extension.

More Info: When i drag and drop the file (regardless of name) into the appropriate Chrome page, all it does is show the file. The URL shows the location of the file on my computer. I’m expecting chrome to give me some kind of choice at this point to accept/continue.

I have an answer. The script (download file) needs to have .user.js as it’s file extension. Chrome then recognizes that this is a user script and not just some random file.
