Add an Extensions Button to Google Chrome's Toolbar

SUMMARY: Make managing extensions in Google Chrome easier by adding a shortcut button to the toolbar.

There are several extensions to add commonly-used buttons to the Google Chrome toolbar such as a history button or downloads button. What if you need an easier way to manage your extensions (uninstalling, removing, and changing options) instead of selecting the wrench button and clicking "Extensions"?

The "Go Extensions" extension adds a button to the right of the address bar in the Google Chrome toolbar. Click it and a new tab opens allowing you to manage extensions, including this one.

To install:

1. From Google Chrome, visit the "Go Extensions" page.

2. Click the "Install" button.

3. Click "Install" in the "Confirm Installation" dialog box when prompted.
