Google Chrome (finally) Offers Support for Extensions

google-chrome-thumbFor many of us, extension support was the last thing that was holding us back from fully switching to Google’s Chrome web browser.  As of today, you can browse the officially opened Google Chrome Extension Gallery which offers 300+ extensions and growing.

Excited about Chrome extensions?  Have any favorites so far?  Share with us in the comments.
