5 Best Social Media Extensions for Google Chrome

As far as speed, security and terms of user sentiment are concerned, it cannot  be doubted that Firefox is gradually losing its charm and people have become  more inclined towards using Google Chrome as their browser of choice. The  Chrome extensions library might be one of the reasons behind the popularity of this web browser. While webmasters continue to favor Firefox, among   mainstream users, Google Chrome has become the more acceptable browser.

The fact that the Chrome browser is powered by Google sandbox, making it  more secure and that it allows users to avoid using Internet Explorer, are some  of the other reasons they are preferring to use Chrome.

Combined with the ever so successful Google Buzz, closer attention is being paid to Chrome by developers and extensions in competition with rival Firefox are  being rapidly issued. Additionally, rapid access to Buzz, Google Docs, Gmail is  also being incorporated into the browser along with the good, old school social  networking tool Twitter.
