Chrome Extensions Gallery Officially Opens [Chrome Extensions]

December 8, 2009 at 5:55 pm (Uncategorized)

Right after the Mac and Linux betas of Google Chrome arrived, Google threw open the doors to its Chrome extensions gallery. Jump in, browse the most popular and highly-rated add-ons, and grab something good for your new browser.

As noted, the big letdown is that these extensions don’t work on Chrome’s Mac beta, at least for the time being. On a Windows machine running the dev version, or in the Linux release, it’s a two-click install for most extensions. You can sort by popularity and rating, and see what’s being featured by the Chrome team. You can also browse by most recent uploads, but that seems like it’ll get out of hand before too long.

The obvious point of comparison is Mozilla’s Add-Ons gallery for Firefox. Notably lacking from Chrome’s gallery is RSS feeds for search terms and popular/recent categories. On the other hand, Chrome’s gallery seems far more friendly to multiple, big screenshots, which we all can appreciate.

Find a great app in the Chrome gallery? Tell us about it in the comments. We’re definitely taking a look around, and taking suggestions, for more coverage.
