google chrome extensions

Google announced that it has opened up the Google Chrome extension gallery for submissions.

The process for submission is simple: log in with your Google account, zip your file code and your extension’s icon, submit supplementary info like a description, demo (on YouTube or whatever), etc. and you’re done! The process is automatic for almost every extension: ones that include an NPAPI component (Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface) or content scripts that affect "file://" URLs will require additional information and review.

There are already some Google-made extensions that are working in Chrome now, such as a Gmail Checker, which is handy. These were mainly made to be examples in helping walk developers through the extension creation process. You can find their documentation on that here.
