Web developers have the odd extension to help them hack, leechers use extensions to rape sites (downthemall!), advanced users have them to tell them the weather, new email, PR, etc, and finally ego-maniacs have the, digg, technorati etc tools at their disposal. Last but not least, it gives google an easy way to offer more tools to willing users.
