One of the major feature that many people are looking in the Google Chrome is the support for extensions. Now Google is allowing developers to upload Chrome extensions via the “Google Chrome Extensions” page. But do remember that the new Google Chrome Extensions gallery is currently in limited beta release. Chrome Extensions Gallery allows developers to upload their extensions. Developers should upload a ZIP file of the extension directory and not a packaged CRX file. Once you are done with uploading your extension, you have to provide a detailed description, as well as screenshots or a YouTube video of your extension in action.

Google Chrome Extensions will definitely help users in many ways. There can be many extensions to check your PageRank, Tweet, Download YouTube Videos and many more. Similar to Firefox Add-ons Google Chrome Extensions will come in handy to users and that will definitely increase the market share of Google Chrome. The good thing is that for most of the extensions, review process is fully automated. The only extensions that will be reviewed manually are those that include an NPAPI component and all content scripts that affect “file://” URLs. Once an extension is uploaded, the gallery takes care of packaging and signing. In the next few days, Google Chrome team is planning to open up the gallery to a small group of trusted testers. This is definitely a good thing to hear from Google just after announcing about Google Chrome OS.
