The number of Google Chrome extensions is growing extremely fast and now stands at well over 4,000 different extensions. For those of you that donâ€™t know, Google Chrome is a web browser much like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Opera. These are all applications that allow you to browse the internet. As people spend more time online they are using a browser more often. It stands to reason that as users spend more time in a specific application they would want more functionality from that application. Whether itâ€™s listening to music, chatting with friends, reading the latest tweets, or enhancing a websiteâ€™s look and feel, extensions or add-inâ€™s can provide this added functionality to browsers like Chrome that support it.
Google Chrome is a newcomer in the browser wars, but itâ€™s gaining on other Internet Explorer alternatives like Firefox and Opera. This popularity has led to growth of the extensions mentioned above. Chrome extensions are made available throughÂ Chromeâ€™s Extension Gallery, but imagine trying to find the extension you want, among 4,000+ without some sort of categorization. It looks like Google has been listening and they recently announced that you can now browse extensions by categories.
Theyâ€™ve added six categories to aid you in your search for the extensions you want.
