    Hey guys and girls.. I have a question !

    Are extensions supported on Chrome for Mac ?
    About > Chrome says I'm using version 3.0.190.0, which should support extensions.. not sure if it does however. I tried installing one but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to do this on a Mac.

    I searched the web and didn't see anything either confirming that they work or that they don't. Can anyone give me any info ?

    I'll get my Hackintosh up and running either tonight or tomorrow (yay for newer hardware!) and get back with you on this.

    Thanks Devils !

    Meanwhile I'm developping on my Mac and saving remotely on my PC where I can test my stuff.. Not optimal, but quite fun.

    (ChromeGestures has a line showing your gesture now ! )

    What are you using to work remotely? Something like logmein?

    If the iMac is your main computer, you might think about VMWare with XP installed. I like it a lot better than Parallels and it works great when you set it up with spaces.

    Is it fast ?

    I might look into VM software.. but they tend to cost a lot. I don't know much about them.

    But I used finder, you can access shared folders to I shared my extension folder. As I hit save, my extension is updated on my PC and I just have to refresh Chrome to test my changes.

    Or you could go with a free, open source one. http://www.virtualbox.org/ :P
    Not that I've tried it. Just throwing it out there.

    VirtualBox is great (I use it on my Windows boxes, never used it on Mac) and typically offers great performance. It can however lack a lot of integrated tool features.

    VMWare (and Parallels) shouldn't be a problem running on a Mac host. I use them on a daily basis and don't notice any significant performance issues (plus the integration tools are great).

    Try VirtualBox out and see if it does everything you need.
