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?
- 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.
- Xmarks. If syncs your bookmarks across multiple browsers. It’s everything that delicious should have been.
- Firebug Lite. It adds onto the already great web developer tools built right into chrome. Can’t complain about that.
- Google Voice. Making phone calls from your browser is pretty bad ass.
