"A few months back, the new tab page in Chrome tipped us off to the impending launch of Google's theme gallery. Tonight, there's a new change that could very well mean that Google is getting ready to open the doors to a similar gallery – for Chrome extensions.

Up until now, the corner of the page featured a small graphic which linked to the Themes Gallery. Today, that image was replaced with the puzzle pieces you see above which links to https://chrome.google.com/extensions. Don't get too excited, though. As with the themes gallery thumbnail in July, the link doesn't go where it's supposed to yet. You'll be redirected to Google's search page.

According to a recent posting on Google Groups by Chrome team member Neil Baum, extensions are set to hit Chrome's beta channel in early December. The plan may well be to launch both the updated beta and extension gallery at the same time. "

The --enable-sync flog for the Linux version now works.

DownThemAll and EchoFon are what's keeping me using Firefox. Maybe if Chrome equivalents where released I might use it more.

The extension gallery would be great, especially for the paranoid amongst us worrying about rouge extensions :P

Visit chrome://extensions/ without installing any extensions, and you'll see: "Boo... No extensions installed :-(Want to browse the gallery (Edit: this is a hyperlink) instead?".
