Posted by Andrew.

The Chromium extension system is in active development, now's the time to start trying to build and test Chrome extensions. It is not yet ready for use by the general public. However, there are some simple and nice extensions since Google announced design documents for Chrome extensions[1] [2].

If you want to use these extensions to enhance your Google Chrome browser, you should download and install Google Chrome developer version (which is still only a developer preview release), and then right click the Google Chrome icon in your desktop, click Properties to open the Properties dialog, and then click Shortcut tab, add -enable-extensions parameter in the Target field, as it is shown in following figure.

Right click the Chrome shortcut icon, and then add -enable-extensions in the Target field
