Google Chrome Gets Premilinary Support For Extensions/Plugins

by Chrome Blog on March 19, 2009

After a lot of speculations and expectations regarding the support of Extensions, Plugins or add-ons as you may call for Google Chrome, the Chrome Developers have finally released some sort of extensions support for the browser.  Though the support and information is very basic at this stage but it is a nice and welcome beginning.

Google Chrome Extensions

An extensions design document is available on the developers website which shows exactly how to use the extension. A sample extension is available there alongwith its installation directions. Just have to download and extract the extensions files to a directory (for e.g “c:\myextension“) and include the following line in the target properties of Google Chrome Shortcut :

--enable-extensions --load-extension="c:\myextension"

And thats it. Now just lauch the google chrome browser and you would be able to use the extensions as mentioned in the extensions design document.

As already pointed out that this is very basic at this stage but i am sure that this would lead to a greater browser market share when more plugins are developed for it. The main difference between Mozila Firefox and Google Chrome was in the support of extensions and plugins which now seems to have been broken.

Now if they just give you a way to load extensions/themes from within the damn browser itself… Why bother releasing support for this stuff if you have to much around with command line options and dll overwrites to make it happen. This browser is perfect for the build it yourself linux crowd, but is silly for everyone else that just wants something that is simple to use.

abso, didn’t the words “preliminary”, “some sort of extensions support”, “very basic at this stage” and “on the developers website” give you a hint that it’s still preliminary, very basic at this stage and somehow reserved for developers?

I love Chrome, carry on guys!

Guys, give the browser some more time. Its only 6 months since it has been released. Already it has been voted the fastest browser as you know. If you just need something simple then subscribe to the Stable Release of Chrome, as pointed out by onoe guy, all these command lines adds, etc are for only testers and developers to implement those things in the stable release.
