Google Chrome Extensions - A few of my favorites

This is a follow up post to my Google Chrome 30 day challenge.

One of the features I loved about the Firefox  web browser (before I switched to Chrome) was the ability to personalize the browser with useful add-ons called extensions.  Extensions can do a range of tasks which simplify everything from subscribing to RSS feeds and following your Twitter or Facebook accounts to listening to music or defining a word.

The problem with extensions in Firefox and Internet Explorer is that they are not very easy to install or uninstall (restart and restart again), every update also requires restarting your browser, and they tend to slow your system down if you use more than a few.

Google Chrome's extension gallery is quite easy to navigate.  The install process does not require you to restart your browser and updates are handled with out restarts as well.  Not all extensions are perfect, but I've developed a list of my favorites which I think are worth a look.

The full link to this list is available here. (Using Google Bookmarks Pubic Lists)
