After months in beta, Google has finally released final version of Chrome 4.0 web browser. Furthermore, it now officially supports extensions and bookmark synchronization (Google account required).
The best thing about long awaited extensions is: browser restart is not required. It’s just a one click installation, simple as that. Also, they are automatically updated.
As for today, there are over 1 800 extensions available, such as: Google Voice, goo.gl url shortener, IE Tab Classic and many more.

The latest dev build of Google Chrome web browser (4.0.288.1), has finally received extensions support and bookmark sync.
Furthermore, “Pin Tab” feature was also added, which transforms selected tabs into small, icon only tabs.
Well, this certainly wasn’t a big surprise. During the last month of 2009, Google Chrome (4.63% market share) became world’s 3rd most used web browser, overtaking Apple’s Safari (4.46%).
In other news, Internet Explorer market share went down from 63.62% to 62.69% (0.93 point decrease).
Firefox also lost some of the market share, going down from 24.72% to 24.61% (0.11 point decrease). Continue Reading
