The Chromium (Chrome developer version) extension system is in active development. It is not yet ready for use by the general public. To launch extensions for Chrome, you should install a Chrome developer or beta version, and then add --enable-extensions to your Chrome command line

How to uninstall an extension?

To uninstall an extension, please do following steps:

  1. Navigate to chrome://extensions.

Thanks for the quick tip! There are tons of great applications out there, but we have to play a bit with them first and some might not be what we're looking for. Part of the game is to try i guess.

I keep getting the "Something Went Wrong" Blue page of doom, apparently because the "AddThis" Extension has crashed.

Unfortunately Chrome won't even let me navigate to chrome://extensions without the same error pooping up, so all I can do is uninstall and re-install.
That's crap!

Same as mark, also with a "quixley" extension. There is no uninstall button like in the picture, and when I disable it it just reappears or when i reopen chrome.
