Does not work with 3.0195 version of Chrome
other extensions are working perfectly (adsweep and pagerank)

Great start, but I would also recommend using the Symbol Commander gestures program. I've used it for years, and it works really well with browsers including Chrome. The left arrow gesture for going back in history, and the right arrow for going forward are worth it alone, but you can also make your own gestures and commands for moving among tabs, reloading a page, downloads history, etc. I think the company that made it (Sensiva) really blew it in marketing (i.e. not marketing) and developing (again, not) this great product. But with a little effort on the user's part to create personalized gestures, it pays off over and over again in my, I hope, unbiased opinion.
