Google So, Google has made it very hard to install Chrome extensions outside of the Chrome Web Store - out of security concerns. In addition, they sprung this on users and extension developers without much consultation or consideration for their concerns. As always - understandable to protect users, but the handling has an almost Apple-like bluntness to it. Next up: how to jailbreak your browser?

Install Chromium? Does Chromium also require web store extensions by default?

Not much point, the only difference between Firefox and Chrome now is a few -webkit- properties and NativeClient. And since Chromium doesn’t support NaCl, most of the ‘chrome web store’ content doesn’t actually work.

Where do you see that Chromium doesn't support NaCl? I'm running Chromium on ArchLinux, and I'm pretty sure it works. Perhaps you're referring to it not working on Debian/Ubuntu builds of Chromium?
