Google Finally! Google has released version 4.0 of Chrome for Windows, bringing the much-anticipated extensions framework out of beta and into the stable channel. Currently, more than 1500 extensions are already available. Version 4.0 carries more features than just extensions, though.

The good news is, the APIs are being worked on; see Comment 9 here:

Interesting. Judging by the feature list Google is going even one step further than Mozilla and is building something akin to Adblock Plus right into the core of Chrome, including an UI for filter management. Bonus points for extending the system to HTTP referrers and cookies. I'm curious now how the final implementation will turn out.

If that allows extension developers, like NoScript's author, to use those facilities to make their extension work like it did on Firefox good.

If Google's answer is... nah, you do not need NoScript after all... we have our own alternative... well I would stick with Firefox.

Bookmark tags (thanks SQLite ;) ) + Mozilla Weave sync + Live Bookmarks + NoScript... the reasons why I still use Firefox over Chrome.

Wow, how cool. Opera only had that since, like 2006?
