Google announced a new Chrome Web Store policy. From now on, Chrome extensions would be simple and single-purpose in nature, and each would only be allowed a single visible UI "surface" in Chrome, a single browser action or page action button. So no more annoying toolbars or bloatwares in the form of extensions. :D


Now Chrome users would have more control over which features they added to their browser.

Nice but I don't like that they are about to completely disable the side-loading of add-ons. There should be an option to install the third-party extensions.

Single-purpose extensions are good. I hate add-ons bloated with unwanted features.

good, but screw it, google chrome is enough of a memory hog even without extensions. (and no, don't ask me to get more than 4gb of ram)
