Google Chrome extensions have gained popularity along with the browser. If you are like me, I loved the speed of Chrome but refused to make Google Chrome my defaults 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 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 ad-blockers such as Chrome adblock plugin, social site extensions (Chrome facebook extension), browser functionality extensions in Facebook photo zoom for chrome 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 add a small icon to the upper right of the Chrome browser to make them very quick and easy to access. While most of the extensions for Chrome are working as promised, but there could be some that have bugs in them
