Google Chrome Extensions: Not Yet, but later

Where are the Google Chrome Extensions or Addons? Unfortunately they don’t currently exist. There is a FAQ at Google Chrome Help center:

Developers and Webmasters: Availability of extensions

Currently, Google Chrome doesn't support any extensions.

"We don't have that in the beta today, but we definitely plan an extension API," or application programming interface, Sundar Pichai, a Google vice president of product management, said at the Chrome launch event here Tuesday. "It is one of the things we will get to next." - From CNet News

the new google chrome was really good with all new features and if the downloading speed will be more then it should look good anyway it is really a good browser

I find the only thing that I don't have that I really like in FF3 is Firebug... Webkit/Chrome has some of that functionality built in, along with its script debugger and console, but it feels a bit lacking. I really like the YSlow addon to Firebug, but it's probably only a matter of time.

Thank you Google for the browsing experience I was hoping would be here in the future. I was so sick of waiting minutes for FireFox to load (on my friggin' Vista Quad core with RAID0 setup) and getting raped by ActiveX drive-bys with IE. THANK YOU GOOOOOOGLE!

the future use of chrome for me solely depends on the addition of plug-ins and extensions or I'm just going back to firefox

Come on guys you could have given a few things.Atleast there should have been an option for do not load images and chrome doesn't even ask when multiple tabs are being closed this is very annoying. Unless you guys release some good addons soon your browser is going down.

Really miss a form filler for Chrome. Any suggestions?

it would be better if you could include more plugins as part of the basic package. it seems whatever web page I go to, I get a message that a plug in is needed. I am going back to explorer.

Real exercise, good exercise, takes place in, if not the wild, than in some urban approximation thereof. ,

Two words: Ad Block

I've been a Firefox user since before it was named Firefox. I've used IE, FF, Opera, and a couple minor ones I don't even recall. IE is the only one that runs every page (plus you need it for MS updates). Still, I use FF because of Ad-Block.

To me, no browser will ever be the hands down winner until it allows me to eliminate all the garbage that tries to overtake my display while I'm trying to work.

FF with AdBlock+ isn't perfect, but it's light years ahead of any alternative.

A good exemple of a Chrome extension (addon or widget) :
Flysms to send MMS.

Flysms.eu is a widget that lets you send webcam recorded video MMS.

You can also send low cost SMS, photos by MMS,
videos from youtube and many other functionalities.

the firefox addon: [url] https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/53625 [/url]
