From the can’t believe I missed this, but have been so swamped that it doesn’t surprise me file, Google’s latest beta version of Chrome has officially integrated extensions. I know. I’m as surprised as you are.

In other news, Chrome still crashes like a mad man on me, and if I even try to use it while navigating wordpress’ backend the whole browser crashes hard. Leaving behind my article, and forcing me to re-enter the stuff in its entirety. But I guess some progress is better than no progress at all. Once these bugs get worked out I’ll probably be moving over to Chrome full time.

Favourite extentsions so far?

  1. Feedly.  If you’re an rss news junkie and absolutely hate looking at google reader and all of it’s 1995 design constructs then you MUST take this for a spin.  I’ve been using it as my primary reader for well over six months now, and it was the one thing keeping me attached to Firefox.
  2. Xmarks.  If syncs your bookmarks across multiple browsers.  It’s everything that delicious should have been.
  3. Firebug Lite.  It adds onto the already great web developer tools built right into chrome.  Can’t complain about that.
  4. Google Voice.  Making phone calls from your browser is pretty bad ass.
