When Chrome extensions were first announced, I remember reading that they were enormously easier to build than Firefox add-ons. Apparently, this difference wasn’t overstated.
But it works, after only a matter of hours.
One nice thing about Chrome extensions is they keep themselves updated, no more nagging from the add-ons manager about updates. Another nice treat is extension sync between browser installations, which was recently debuted for the developer builds, which I happen to run.
Note to self: try this feature.
So, the guys are wrapping up a quick win with Chrome. They’ll either build a Safari 5 extension next, which seems wasted to me given the terribly small number of users who could find value in this, or tackle the much more involved process of building a Firefox add-on.
Stay tuned for updates.
