Recently we wrote about the availability of Google Chrome Extensions. Within few days many developers have created useful extensions for Chrome. Google Chrome Extensions will work with the latest version of Google Chrome. Currently I have the version 4 of Google Chrome on my Windows 7 Laptop and the extensions are working fine. Also do note that extensions are in Beta stage and are only available for Windows and Linux Users.
