Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Starting today, all builds in Google Chrome's dev channel will have extension support enabled by default. That means that you'll no longer need to add the --extensions-enabled switch to Google Chrome's shortcut icon. This new feature takes Chrome one step closer to the kind of extensibility that keeps Firefox die-hards from switching.

Please note that so far, this seems to be working on Windows builds only, but Linux and Mac builds should have this enabled very soon.
