At the link below is a quick Chrome Omnibox extension to support HDFS browsing.  Basically you type in "hdfs" and a space, then the simplified file path, which is the hostname without a port followed by the pathname.

hdfs-browser.crx

As an example using a node called "bad-qa-apahad", if you type hdfs then space then enter the following:

bad-qa-apahad/user/hive/warehouse/customer

You should see something like this:

Then when you hit enter it will build and load the browse URL for you:


The current version assumes HTTP (not HTTPS) protocol, a browse port of 50075, and a NameNode info port of 50070.

To install, open a Chrome tab pointing to chrome://chrome/extensions/ and drag the CRX file (saved from the above link) onto the page.
