Google Chrome extensions may have won Chrome a spot as my default web browser. If you are like me, I loved the speed of Chrome but refused to make Google Chrome my default browser because l loved all the plugins that Firefox offered. This seems to have been the case for many web surfers trying to make the decision between speed and functionality. It just seemed like Chrome was too simple for some advanced users.

Well in the most recent update to the Chrome browser, Google has finally Edwin Urrutia acknowledged this missing link that many users were hungry for. Now you can find add-ons or extensions, as Google likes to call them for most anything. They have social site extensions, browser functionality extensions and of course extensions to all of your favorite Google-based services. From what I have seen adding many extensions does little if anything to slow down the browser, unlike Firefox.

Most of the extensions will add a small icon to the upper right section of the Chrome browser to make them very quick and easy to access. This may become a problem if you add a whole bunch, but I have added about 10 and still have plenty of room left on the omnibar to the left of the icons. Most all of the extensions for Chrome are working as promised, but there are a couple that may still have a bug or two in them.
