Google Chrome: Extentions At Last

Ok I know its been a while since I last wrote a blog.  But what with Christmas and stuff I have been really busy 12 hour  shifts are horrible. Anyway enough about me and on to what this post is actually about.

Google have finally realised a version of their browser Google chrome which allows the use of extensions. Now im fully aware that extensions have been available for a while for the browser but that the feature had been set to off as default. This is the first time that it has been enabled for all and the extension system seems to be working great.

In my opinion the lack of extension support was one thing that was holding chrome back, I can now see myself using it more often as I have already dropped internet explorer completely. I had only been using it for sites that didn’t like Firefox which is becoming a very rare problem nowadays.

I’m currently running the latest beta version which is 4.0.249.30 and having updated from a few builds ago and so far all seems to working as you would expect still running quick and no crashes so far. You can download it from filehippo here

Every now and then when I am bored I visit a little addon website for my browser of choice Firefox. It is a great site full of many useful and useless things https://addons.mozilla.org

I go there when I’m bored to see what new stuff people have been making see if there is any new ideas or new takes on old ideas. Sometimes i find things that are superb and install them immediately.

One such extension I came across the other day is Piclens.

It works with various websites like flickr and basically creates a full screen slideshow of the pictures the video explains better than I can.

Good news for non firefox users to chances are that there is a version available for you as versions are also available for Internet Explorer and Macs.
