We are having a considerable amount of extensions being developed now for Google Chrome. Last time I posted about the Gtalk Extension for using Google Talk directly from your browser and it has already got more than 1300 downloads.
Today i am posting about a couple of extensions released for facebook. One of them is the Facebook Notifications Extension which simply fetches your notifications from facebook and displays in the toolstrip of your browser. The other one is called the FastBook Extension which adds some sort of shortcuts to your facebook page.
Since extensions are not yet supported for stable or beta users, you would be required to switch to the dev channel in order to install the extension and use the command line ––enable-extensions in your google chrome shortcut target.
A handy little plugin which when installed adds a Facebook button to your toolstrip. The extension would travel to facebook and retrieve the notifications list for you. Ofcourse, you must be logged into Facebook in order to get the extension to work. The extension would only return the number of notifications you have and not the notifications itself. Once you click on the facebook logo in the toolstrip, it will take you to your Facebook homepage.
