Chrome for Mac gets extensions, bookmark sync

updated 12:30 pm EST, Thu February 11, 2010

Google Chrome for Mac catches up to Windows

Google today launched a new beta of Chrome that gives Mac users the same new features that have surfaced in the stable Windows version. Extensions are the highlight and can either add new features, such as a dictionary or site script, as well as simplify tasks within the browser itself. Add-ons written for Windows or Linux will normally work properly with Mac builds.

The update also brings a long-requested bookmark sync feature: those signed in to a Google account can optionally unite bookmarks across multiple Chrome installations, including on non-Mac platforms. A new task manager, for organizing large number of tabs, is also part of the refresh.

Those who already have the Chrome beta installed will automatically get the new version within the next day, but those who want to try the updates today can manually install the new beta themselves.
