Chrome Extends Its Capabilities

Extensions Are Here!

Extensions Are Here!

Along with the Native Client support that came in 4.0.220.1, little attention was paid to another addition in the dev branch: extensions are here (or soon will be).

The initial support is good – but it needs some polish.  The existence of sites like Chrome Extensions will surely help.  And the good news is that some must-have Firefox extensions are now available in Chrome – including AdBlock+.  I can’t wait for NoScript and FoxyProxy (or would it be ChromoProxy?) to arrive.

In the meantime, I really do like having things like Bubble Translate.  I can highlight text I want to translate and simply click a button.   Bam!  I see the comments I need to understand.  I couldn’t compare this to other extension-based translators.  But it is really handy to have this – especially as there is a growing international support community for Chrome.
