Chrome extensions will soon require Chrome Web Store distribution for all Mac…

Will We Soon Be Jailbreaking Browsers?

If it wasn’t for Chrome’s automatic inline translation services and profile support, I’d probably have switched to Opera as my default browser long ago. After all, Opera runs Chrome extensions too, with a tenth of the memory bloat of Chrome.

This coming reduction in flexibility, maybe the final straw. Unless, of course, somebody ‘jailbreaks’ Chrome to allow non-web-store extensions.
