Google Chrome Extensions Get Polish: Getting Ready for Wider Release?

chrome_logo_may09.jpgGoogle just released an update to its cutting edge developer version of Google Chrome that adds a lot of polish to the way Chrome handles extensions. Interestingly, while the stable versions of Chrome are still stuck with the 2.x series, the versions in the developer channel are now already designated as 4.x versions. At this point, users of the developer channel version can already easily install extensions, change themes, sync bookmarks, and profit from a faster rendering engine, while users of the more conservative stable version don’t have access to any of these features yet.

Among other things, Google has now made extension management a lot easier and if you use the dev channel version, just type in “chrome://extensions/” and the new extension management interface will pop up.
