Extensions arrive on Chrome for Mac

Google has enabled extensions in the Mac version of Chrome, bringing the browser a giant step closer to its Windows cousin.

Extensions arrive on Chrome for Mac

The changes are currently only available in the developer build of the browser, but it’s still a significant addition to the release. The Mac and Linux versions of Chrome were released over a month ago, but were lacking a number of features found in the Windows release.

Among those is bookmark synchronisation between multiple machines, which has also found its way into the developer build of Chrome for Mac.

The developer builds are released nightly, often with untried new features or bug fixes that Google doesn’t believe are ready to be inflicted on those using the infinitely more stable beta and final releases.

The addition of extensions should offer Chrome a boost in its attempts to claw market share from Internet Explorer and Firefox. Recent figures from Net Applications revealed that Chrome saw out December with a 4.63% share of the market, enough to unseat Apple’s Safari as the world’s third most popular browser. Safari finished the month with a 4.46% slice of the market.
