This is cool. Too bad I don't go to many pages where I need it... But I did have fun nuking the hell out of CNN.

Chrome is no longer a fairly well-kept secret worldwide:

That's pretty much the perfect metaphor for I felt as well.

The value is that Ghostery blocks that guy.

yeah, looked into Ghostery as well, but it's like not knowing that some 350-lb. guy with a fake security badge is following your wife around on CCTV whenever you go into wal-mart and zooming in on her tits.

Ghostery also has some blocking features..which I like.

Got it.

I'm not going to get Ghostery. I'd rather continue the illusion of privacy.

What's WOT?

It's not exactly useful if, like me, you rarely stray from the same six or seven websites.

Just downloaded it. Using now. Awesome!!!

Okay, so what add-ons do I want to get again?

Cass has the list above for the social networking sort of stuff.  My security-minded list is:

WOT

Adblock (as well as the secondary add-on that gives you the option to turn it off)

IE Tab, of course, which I need here at work because, holy shit this job

Ghostery is fun if you want to eventually fear using the internet.

Made the Chrome jump at work. It's immediately improved my life.

okay, here's some no-brainer extensions I've found. (just got a new laptop and I've been configuring it all night).

Fast YouTube Search = click a little button to search only youtube

Google Mail Checker and Google Reader Notifier = show little icons with unread items on them, plus you can click them instead of taking up a bookmark tab

RSS Subscription = automatically finds the feed and subscribes. sounds useful but I haven't tested this yet.

Select to Get Maps = highlight an address and automatically pops up a little tool where you can select to show on google maps or get directions (assuming you have a location saved)

Scroll to Top Button = displays a button on the side of your browser to click that will send you to the top (or bottom) of a webpage.  useful for really long GS threads where you have to page up to get back to the forum tree....

Oh! Hacker News, company chat room, Reddit, Google Reader, Facebook, GS, company bug tracker, and YouTube.

Chrome is hands down the best browser around these days.

I've recently started using Opera, and it's a solid second in my book (much better than either Firefox or Explorer).

Plan to start with Safari in 2011....it's one gaining popularity very gradually.
