Google Chrome to support add-ons

By on
Earlier this month Google released their beta version of their new open source web browser Chrome. The program was received with much fanfare – as it’s almost the norm with everything Google releases – with many in the online community praising the browser’s speed, lightweight user interface and multi-threaded nature.

Upon further testing, however, many went back to their usual browser of choice claiming they felt “naked” with Chrome’s apparent lack of advanced features and add-ons. That's set to change, according to InformationWeek, which has just confirmed the browser will eventually support add-ons and user scripts à la Greasemonkey – a move that could definitely entice power users and the Firefox faithful to make the switch.

The report does not mention when we can expect the new features, but Google is said to be working hard to make sure its add-on paradigm keeps Chrome stable and fast.
