google chromeIndicators are pointing to the final piece of the Google chrome puzzle coming next week: Extensions.

Many people have said that the only reason that they haven’t changed to Chrome as their main Web browser is because it lacks support for extensions, those little tools that allow your browser to do extra little jobs.  extensions have long been a major component of the Firefox community, and so people have been missing them during their use of Chrome.

According to TechCrunch, Google will be announcing its Extension support some time this week, and it makes perfect sense as Google is a Gold sponsor of Add-on-Con 09, a developer conference dedicated to extensions.

The only problem with extensions is the more you add to a program, the slower it will go as it is just that much more code for it to deal with.  To date, one of the biggest selling points of Chrome has been its speed, if it starts losing that advantage in lieu of extensions, it may be a Catch-22 for Google.  If people start overloading their copy of Chrome with extensions and it slows to a crawl, something they have done to themselves, they will confuse it with the fault of Google.

In short, enjoy the extensions (if they do in deed come out this week), but be careful with how many you add.
