With the release of Chrome for Mac, Google has also announced the launch of Chrome extensions (available for Windows and Linux, Mac – coming soon).
One great thing about Chrome extensions is: no annoying restarts after installation. On the downside, as of today, there are only about 300 add-ons available.
After promising to release Chrome for Mac by the end of this year, Google has finally delivered it.
Although it still lacks some of the Windows features, such as: bookmark synch, full extensions support, bookmark manager and multi-touch support, it’s still worth a try. Especially, if all you want is speed.

If everything goes as expected, browser ballot case might be finally resolved by the end of December or even faster.
Bloomberg reports that during the phone conversation with Opera spokesman, it was said: “Our expectation is that the settlement will include changes sought by Opera and will come out around the 15th,”
What are those changes?
Opera Software suggested that instead of listing top 5 web browsers alphabetically, they should be randomly ordered, every time user sees a ballot screen.
Bloomberg also said that Jesse Verstraete, a Microsoft spokesman in Brussels, declined to comment on this case. So don’t hold your breath yet.
