Google Chrome have reached 10000 Extensions since its Launch.  The Numbers shows that

  • The gallery has grown to over 8,500 extensions and 1,500 themes.
  • A third of Chrome users have at least one extension installed.
  • Over 70 million extensions and themes have been installed.

On the client side, Google added features like:

  • New APIs for things like context menus, history, and cookies.
  • Integration between extensions and HTML5 features like notifications and geolocation.
  • Extension sync, so your favorite extensions are always with you.
  • Native support for Greasemonkey user scripts.

Looking forward, we’re very excited about the chrome web store, where developers will be able to easily sell their apps, extensions, and themes.
And we’re not going to slow down on the features, either. The next Chrome release will add API support for the omnibox and pinned tabs. Beyond that, we’re hard at work on popular requests like network interception and download management APIs, as well as new experimental APIs forsidebars and development tools.
