I’ve been a dedicated Firefox user for years because of its wondrous catalog of extensions. I like Google Chrome, too — from its load time to how it accesses pages, everything about it is fast, fast, fast. But I never made the full-time switch because it didn’t have all my geeky extensions.
In their ongoing bid for world domination Google has rectified this deficiency, opening up its sprawling new extensions gallery. To use them you’ll have to install the new beta version of the browser (don’t be afraid of using a beta version in this case, however — “beta” is Googlespeak for “software”).
Below are a few can’t-miss extensions you should download immediately:
AdBlock: The venerable ad-blocking extension finally makes it to Chrome. The web looks a lot prettier all of a sudden.
Xmarks: Sync your bookmarks from other browsers to make the transition easier.
