Google's new open source web browser Chrome is set to support add-ons. The browser, which is currently in beta, received a fanfare from online communities, as many were impressed with its speed and lightweight user interface.

Many, however, soon returned to their old browsers, claiming Google Chrome lacked features and add-ons. According to InformationWeek, Google has just confirmed the browser will eventually support add-ons and user scripts à la Greasemonkey -- a positive move which could definitely make a lot of users' make the switch permanently, including the Firefox faithful.

There is no ETA from google as of yet.

The main reason why people went back to their browsers was because of no add-on support, GreaseMonkey script junkies missed it a lot. Everyone was impressed with Chrome being lightweight as mentioned. Introduce add-on to Chrome, and Firefox will have serious problems.

I'll believe that Chrome will seriously affect Firefox when it's sporting similar capabilities and support. That day is quite a ways off the way I see it now. :D

As I recall, you said flash hard drives were quite a ways off, too, about a year ago or two.;)

Do you see them in general use yet? They're still multiples in price for the same storage capacity of magnetic disks. I sure don't see any 750gig flash drives available yet, do you? Care to venture a guess as to the percentage of shipping drives that are SSD vs. magnetic?
