Google Chrome Now Supports 1,500+ Extensions

Google has released the latest version of their Chrome web browser for Windows full support for the more than 1,500 extension in the Chrome extension gallery. Linux user don't fret as extensions are enabled on the beta channel. And for those using Google Chrome for Mac, hang tight — Google has said they are working on bringing extensions, bookmark sync and more to the beta ASAP!

In addition to adding full extension support Google also announced that Windows based version of Google Chrome will now add bookmark sync. Bookmark sync keeps your Google Chrome bookmarks synchronized and up-to-date across several computers, without needing to manually recreate your bookmarks every time you switch computers. To read more on bookmark sync, check out this handy guide.

Personally I can't wait to give Google Chrome another trial. I'm a die hard Firefox fan and haven't tried Chrome in some time. I love my Firefox extensions and couldn't see living without them so it will be nice to see what extensions Chrome has. If you're on a PC and haven't tried Google Chrome yet, or like me haven't tested it in some time, you can download Google Chrome and give all these new features a whirl.

Extensions you might like:
Here are five extension we are getting ready to load and try.
  1. Zemanta -  this blogging extension looks like a useful add-on for any blogger. It adds an easy to use dashboard for adding content to most all popular blogging platforms.
  2. AdBlock - we all know what this is, but if you don't its a great extension for removing scripts and ads from pages
  3. Clickable Links - make all links formatted or not clickable, this is handy for quick easy browsing for sites that don't auto populate links
  4. eBay Extension - I love eBaying so I'm dying to test the features packed into this one
  5. AddThis - I use this extension daily from within Firefox. You get a quick easy way to send bookmarks, links, Tweets or posts to many popular social media sites.
