Google Chrome Gets More Than 1,500 Extensions and Bookmark Sync

Google Chrome (version 4) now includes two of the browser's most frequently requested features: extensions and bookmark sync.

Extensions

Extensions let you add new features and functions to your browser. Some provide one-click access to some of your favorite web applications like Twitter, or news and information sources such as NPR. Others are useful tweaks for performing common online tasks such as browsing photos, getting directions or shopping.

Now you can browse over 1,500 items in the extensions gallery and install them on the stable version of Google Chrome.

Bookmark sync

Bookmark sync is a handy feature for those of you who use several computers — say, a laptop at work and a desktop at home. You can enable bookmark sync to synchronize your bookmarks on all of your computers so that when you create a bookmark on one computer, it's automatically added across all your computers. This means that you won't need to manually recreate the bookmark each time you switch computers.
