Amidst all the anti-Safari Firefox users on the mac making their headway in 2008 and 2009, I have been a steadfast Safari user, only because I was willing to sacrifice the power of extensions of Firefox in order to have a lighter browser that is faster, and therefore stayed with Apple’s Safari. But Google’s Chrome had made a more stealthy entry into the browser wars on the mac, and from my playing around with it, has shown to be quite speedy, and in fact more speedy than Safari. I love it’s simplistic interface, but up until now, I could not add extensions.
Well, although it’s still very beta, you can get your hands on the latest dev build
of Chrome or in fact download the open-source Chromium project
, and you would be able to add extensions, like our Windows cousins could for the past few months… Now, what makes me wanna jump ship, is the fact that I can finally take 1Password
with me onto the Chrome, which is my most essential browser plugin, so that I can auto-fill my website passwords and forms. If you are interested in the steps needed to install 1Password as an extension, visit the official blog
