You can easily check a website’s pagerank or alexa ranking through a plugin called “Searchstatus” in Firefox. Unfortunately we cannot install plugins in Google Chrome. So, each time i want to check a website’s page rank, i need to switch to Firefox.

Some of us installed and use more than one browser on our system. For example, i am using Opera, Firefox, IE, and Google Chrome. So, managing my bookmarks across different browsers bring a lot of trouble to me. Luckily, there is an free application called Transmute, which can copy your bookmarks from one browser and then export it to another browser.
Simply choose the source and target browser and click the Export button. Currently, Transmute support Google Chrome, Firefox, IE, Opera and Safari. the advance settings allow you to create a backup for your bookmarks and append timestamp at your export file.
This application require .NET Framework to run. Before performing any conversion, remember to close all browsers, else you will get error messages. It is because your browsers will lock the bookmarks database and prevent any write action on it.

Although Google Chrome is more “lightweight” compare with other famous browsers such as Firefox and Opera, but one thing that make most of the users avoid using it is because it missing the support of plugins and extensions which will greatly increase the usability of the browser.
However, the latest Google Chrome supports Greasemonkey script. Since there is no way to install extension, so the browser will only loads the scripts from c:\scripts. Furthermore, users need to add the parameter –enable-greasemonkey at the end of the shortcut.
You need build 3499 or later in order to run Greasemonkey script. You may use this method to always get the latest version of Google Chrome.
