« on: December 19, 2010, 01:01:15 PM »
G'day all,

I'm helping out with a friend who used Chrome web browsers and what their looking is an extensions security add-on it like you add extra security features to firefox, so to all the Chrome web browser users out there on the Avast forums could you please help lead the way to find the extensions security add-on and I like to know what you have on your Chrome web browsers.

Thank you.

I know about that post by Logos and I'm fully aware about this, but that is not what I am asking for and thank you Bob.

Probably because it's a more secure browser to start with.:)

Will see if this is a more secure browser to start with.:) and I'm sure he'll comeback and ask that he got more problem with the Chrome browser and he knows I'm using firefox with all my goodies stuff ;), but he wanted to used the Chrome browser :-[

I use AdBlock and Browser Button for AdBlock:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/picdndbpdnapajibahnnogkjofaeooof

Thanks for that YoKenny ;D your legend.

What I don't fully understand and why chrome.google.com doesn't show very many extensions security add-on ??? is it because the features are to early to known available for Chrome users ???

You're welcome.  :)

I had to go hunting under Extensions:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore?category=ext

I tried typing adblock into the search area.

There are more items there than you can shake a stick at.

@ Speedypc: try these >>> NotScripts, BetterPopupBlocker, Ghostery

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/odjhifogjcknibkahlpidmdajjpkkcfn
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/nmpeeekfhbmikbdhlpjbfmnpgcbeggic
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mlomiejdfkolichcflejclcbmpeaniij

 I stopped using ad-blockers in Chrome as they're slowing down the browsing (especially this one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom - adblock ). Most ads are blocked when blocking scripts so... if you want you can also add a flash blocker. Well I don't use it, just a suggestion: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gofhjkjmkpinhpoiabjplobcaignabnl

You could spend almost a lifetime checking out Chrome ad-ons or extensions ;)

I only use Chrome on my XP Pro system and it does not slow down browsing.  8)

You'll want a Windows 7 system after you see it.  ;D

By the way it comes with Windows XP Mode that comes as a separate download:

The extra $80.00 for that feature was not worth it for me.

XP Mode is already in the Pro & Ultimate version and I aware it not avaliable in the Home Version unless they wanted to pay extra $80.00 for that feature, and beside I'm not ready just yet to grab it ;D ;D ;D

Hey Speedy !

Maybe this post will be helpfull to you...

I made the switch cause i love Chrome's speed and the clean GUI. I don't care about mouse gestures, never used them and probably never will. The Gmail Checker Plus extension is just fine IMO and i never had any problems with it. For password manager i use LastPass anyway(just like i did on FF), syncing bookmarks and settings works fine for me so far, never had a problem with it. Since Pol isn't here to give us his usuall list of security extensions, for those of you that are on Chrome and want to try some security and privacy extensions, here are some security and privacy extensions i came across in my searches(i use some of them myself):

NotScripts
Better Pop Up Blocker
AdBlock
Ghostery
NOREF
Secbrowsing
Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on
Click&Clean
KB SSL Enforcer
BitDefender QuickScan
FlashControl
Encrypt the Cloud
Google Secure Search over SSL
