Am I being super paranoid or overly sensitive that all of these downloads start with a warning that “this plug-in will have access to your browsing history and private data.” I know Google already tracks most of that, but why does the measurement tool or eye dropper need it? Not a super encouraging warning message. They should give more info.

I notice a lot of people mentioning Firebug and how they miss it. You really don’t need it. Use Chrome’s built-in developer tools, it’s far better. See Paul Irish’s youtube video for a quick overview & tips on how to use it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOEw9iiopwI, or learn more here: http://code.google.com/chrome/devtools If you still want firebug, there is an extension for chrome – but fair warning, it’s not as great as it is on Firefox. A few that I feel are missing from the list: FastestChrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mmffncokckfccddfenhkhnllmlobdahm Has a ton of great features, my favourite being the “Endless Pages”, which automatically loads the… Read more »
