    Default Addon, mods, Extension, bookmarklet, and script FAQ

    Extensions:Question #1E: What are extensions?Current Answer: An extensions is a Dependant program (it needs chrome, but chrome doesnt need it to run), which adds functionality to its host program (chrome).Question #2E: Is there a minimum amount of memory allocated by chrome for extensions, even my most basic extensions take at least 3 MB to run?Current Answer: I have no IdeaQuestion #3E:Is there a limit to the amount of extensions I can run?Current Answer: I dont think there is, but keep in mind all extensions take up memory, so more extensions can reduce your preformance.Question #4E: How Safe are extensions?Current Answer: Chrome is working on it, and any extensions found on chromes extensions page are most likely safeQuestion #5E: When are extensions running?Current Answer: Currently All extensions run all the time, although the chrome team may change that.Question #6E: Where can I find extensions?Current Answer: some of the following websites, are recommended:www.chromeplugins.org/chrome.google.com/extensionswww.chromeextensions.org/ModsQuestion #1M: What is a Mod?Current Answer: A mod is a custom build of chromium, which may or may not have special features built into it. A mod is essentially a different program, likely containing most of the same codeing.Question #2M: How Safe are mods?Current Answer: Mods may or may not be safe, before installing one, you should decide on the following: Is it from a trustworthy source? Do the extra features outweigh the fact it may not get automatic, or speedy updates? How much has it been tested, and what inputs do former users have about it?Question #3M: Why use a mod, with the inherit risk?Current Answer: Some mods are very well made, and do have cool features, that may not make it into the official version of chrome.Question #4M: Where can I find some popular mods?Current Answer: No Idea... check google..BookmarkletQuestion #1B:What is a bookmarklet?Current Answer:A bookmarklet is a javascript that can be stored in a bookmark, they can be used to preform a variety of task to the current page.Question #2B: When do Bookmarklets Run?Current Answer: Only when they are clicked, meaning that the number of Bookmarklets you have doesn't slow down your browser.Question #3B: How Safe are Bookmarklets?Current Answer: Relatively safe, concidering they are limited to the data on the current page, and you will still be prompted if they forward a download request. They are also Open Source, so anyone may view the code behind the bookmark, to verify its security.Question #4B: Where can I find Bookmarklets?Current Answer: Any of the following places:Useful BookmarkletsGoogle.comScripts/User ScriptsQuestion #1S:[/U] What is a User Script?Current Answer: A user script, is a program that runs when the URL of a website, matches that defined within the script, allowing for modification to the webpage on loadQuestion #2S: How Safe are User scriptsCurrent Answer: Somewhat Safe, Like bookmarklets the code is Open for anyone to read. They are slightly less safe than bookmarks however, because a user doesnt control when they are ran, or prompted when they do so.Question #3S: Why use User Scripts?Current Answer: They offer a variety of functionality to almost every popular website, and many not so popular ones. They also only run when you need them, makeing them less of a resource hog than extensionsQuestion #4S: How much can User Scripts slow my browsing?Current Answer: On the website they run on it may slow browsing a bit (depending on how much the script does), but on pages there not designated to run on they shouldnt slow you anyQuestion #5S:Where can I get User Scripts?Current Answer: One of the following locations:userscripts.org/FlagsQuestion #1F: What are 'Flags':Current Answer: Flags are essentially Aplha (pre-beta) features that chrome team decided to let common users try out, before there officially part of the browser. because of the nature of these addons, they have hardly been tested if at all, and may seriously compromise stuff such as browser security, or in some cases not even work at all.Question #2F: How safe are flags?:Current Answer: Id have to say the least safe of everything posted here, and i would recomend only using them for testing purposes, then completely re-installing the browser when done, just to be safe.Question #3F: Why use Flags?: Current Answer:to test out potential features, and maybe get an idea where the developers are going.Question #4F: How much can Flags slow my browsing?Current Answer: Flags could potentially freeze your browser in place (requiring a re-install to ever work again), although the ones that do work properly wont likely slow it down to bad, although they might leave potential browser vulnerabilities.Question #5F:Where can I get 'Flags'?Current Answer: Type: About:flags into your Omni-bar, for a list of available flags, *i believe this works in atleast anything above beta, although it may also work in the 'normal' version* I in no way take responsibility for damages done, although I wouldn't purposefully sabotage your computer, it is still your responsibility to practice common sense. In addition to the links provided here, there are many other locations to which 'tools' that may work with chrome are provided, If you dont find something you need at one of the following links, I suggest you use Google.If you feel anything above is Inaccurate, or if you have a better answer to any of the following questions. Please inform me, and I will update my post. If you have any other questions regarding tools for Chrome (not about specific tools), feel free to post them below and I will update my post.(a mod may want to sticky this
