The arrival of extensions into Chrome was a major step in making it a credible alternative to Firefox. To mark last week’s Chrome 6 release, which includes extension syncing, Google’s local blog has rounded up some Australia-centric extensions that could prove useful.
The listing includes Australian extension for news, food and travel sites. None of them seem super-compelling (I’m an addicted flyer, for instance, but don’t see the Qantas Frequent Flyer extension as being particularly useful given I’m already in a browser), but it’s nice to see some local activity around the Chrome experience.
