Google Chrome to support extensions by May?

It's safe to assume that if Google is running a session at Google I/O called "developing extensions for Google Chrome," that the browser will likely support them before the conference takes place on May 27th. If not, we'll certainly see them shortly after.

From the conference notes, the session will teach developers to create extensions "using the web technologies [they] already know." Working with the various APIs that are detailed in the Chrome design documents will also be covered.

While Chrome currently supports userscripts, the lack of extensions has been a major deterrent for many Firefox users considering making the switch. There's no doubt developers will be eager to start turning out extensions once they're finally able.
