Google Chrome is close to winning extensions

Google said on Thursday that the basic support system for extensions will be active by default in the new versions of Google Chrome Dev – the development version especially aimed at developers and adventurers of unstable software.


With the active implementation, Google hopes that more people will be able to start using the existing extensions, improve the basic infrastructure and security features that are still being coupled to the browser, such as a new permission system.

Only from these tests does the Mountain View company hope to be able to make the novelty available to all users of the Beta version of the browser. Other pending points include a change in the interface and the completion of some APIs, said Aaron Boodman, Software Engineer.

If you are interested in testing the first extensions, Google has made available three examples add-ons that extend the usability of the browser and interact with external services.
