If you like living on the cutting edge (like me), you’ll already be running the latest developer builds of Google Chrome. Something that’s been lacking in Chrome is the ability to extend the browser’s default functionality via extensions. Good news – Extensions are here!
Whilst the offerings right now available @ http://www.chromeextensions.org/ aren’t exactly earth shattering, this will only grow over time as more developers get on board.
The platform itself works quite well, with extensions installed seamlessly with no browser restarts required. The extensions interface allows easy control over your installed plugins – enable, disable and uninstall.
The good news is (so far) extensions don’t seem to have a negative effect on Chrome’s performance.
