Internet Explorer As it turns out, Google's idea of silently and automatically updating web browsers for security's sake is actually a pretty darn good idea - Chrome is pretty much always up-to-date. Microsoft agrees with this, and has announced it's going to automatically update Internet Explorer on Windows XP, Vista and 7.

NoScript
Convergence
Pentadactyle
Ghostery

When Chrome has those plugins available then I'll have a hard time not changing primary browsers. I'm not sure that NotScript is the same as NoScript. Pentadactyle is there I think but haven't checked the latest. Ghostery I haven't looked for at all. Convergence is going to be a while before it shows up.

There are a number of other more interesting plugins I keep handy but for those types of special needs I can always keep a use dedicated FF install handy.

cheers.

I believe Pentadactyle is also if I remember stumbling on it there first when looking for a vimperator equivalent. now if they could only adjust the API to support Convergence.
