Understanding the importance of extensions/add-ons, Google Chrome team did their job and finally released first developer builds, which adds an early alpha feature to support them. Geek Technica reports 4 Chrome extensions:
1. Cleeki: IE8 Accelerators for Google Chrome. “Cleeki can capture keyword(s) anywhere on a screen with as simple as one click, search it on the Internet, and preview the results immediately.”
It looks like Google Chrome team isn’t going to stop any time soon. Yesterday they have announced a very first 3.0.x branch release: 188.8.131.52.
The following version introduces a support of video tag, auto spell correct (which will fix common typos, such as: teh – the, etc.) as well as UI tweaks and crash fixes.
The font in the browser’s user interface is very small in most non-English languages.
