My favorite chrome extensions

16 Apr 2010

At the moment Chrome is the best browser on the market. It uses the fastest rendering engine (Webkit) in combination with a very fast javascript engine. But my most favored feature is not the speed, it's the extension system. Here I will post a few I use on a daily basis.

Delicious Bookmarks Extension

Sync your bookmarks with your delicious account. Not perfect, but a good start. Hopefully this extension soon gets the all features of the firefox version.

If you want to keep track of all chrome extensions I use, you can subscribe to my links on Delicious tagged as Chrome.

Nightly builds

At the moment I am using the nightly builds of chrome to get the newest features and the best speed. I hated the manual installation process, so I created a little shell script for my mac. You can get it in my github repository: chromium-install.
