Are there too many Chrome extensions that pile up their toolbar and menu icons? Google is working on a solution for this.
The new Extensions menu provides only one icon a place that works as a menu for all your extensions. It is now available and you can activate it through the flags menu.
How to enable the new Chrome Extensions menu
You can do this from the Flags menu. There is the "Extensions Toolbar Menu" flag that is currently disabled and will probably be enabled by default in the future. Activating it will move all the extensions to the left of the three vertical dots to a new menu with an icon that looks like a puzzle piece.
1. Type the following on a tab: “chrome: // flags” and press Enter. Search for the "Extensions Toolbar Menu" using the search box, or you can simply copy-paste this text into your Chrome address bar and press Enter:
chrome: // flags / # extensions-toolbar-menu
2. Click the box to its right and select "Enable".
You will need to restart Chrome to take effect settings σας. Κάντε κλικ στο button “Reboot now” for this. Chrome will reopen all your open tabs, but make sure you save your work first. If you accidentally forget to save any work, Chrome will warn you before restarting about not saving data. Do not ignore the warning.
How to use the new Chrome extensions menu
Once Chrome restarts, you will see a new extension icon in the shape of a puzzle piece to the left of the three dots of Chrome. All your installed extensions will disappear. Click on the new icon to see them.
The new Chrome Extensions menu provides more information about which extensions can access the data on the current site. There are two lists: "With access to the data on this site" and "Unable to access the data on this site".
You can check if a extension can access your data by clicking the menu button (the three dots) to its right and using the “She can read and change site data” option.
This provides easier access to control of Chrome extension permissions. You can restrict a Chrome extension to specific sites only, or simply let it run when you click the menu icon.
Of course extensions can work normally. Click the name or extension icon to use it - it's just like when you clicked the extension icon on the old toolbar. If you enable an extension, its icon will appear temporarily on your toolbar.
Αν κάνετε δεξί κλικ σε μια επέκταση, μπορείτε να επιλέξετε “Καρφίτσωμα” (Pin). Αυτή η επιλογή λογικά θα προσαρμόσει το εικονίδιο της επέκτασης στη γραμμή εργαλείων για ευκολότερη πρόσβαση, αλλά η επιλογή δεν έκανε τίποτα όταν τη δοκιμάσαμε. Προφανώς αυτή η δυνατότητα βρίσκεται υπό development.
Warning: The flags are experimental
This feature and option is behind an experimental flag, which means that Google developers are still working on it. There is a possibility that mode to change dramatically in the future. Still, Google may decide not to implement the extensions menu and simply make the feature disappear.
