Chrome Is Rapidly Approaching Firefox In Extension Numbers

It was only December when Google officially launched extensions for its Chrome browser. Almost immediately, there were 500 extensions in the gallery as many developers had been working on them for a while. Today, Google is saying that number is now past 3,000. And that's significant because it's already pretty close to the browser known for its extensions (which it calls "add-ons"), Firefox.

The exact number of add-ons for Firefox is a bit unclear. If you go by the category counts on the add-on site, there are 11,623. But it's hard to know for sure if there is any overlap between the categories (I couldn't find any, but I'm not sure there isn't). More significantly, if you go by Mozilla's statistic site where they tout their numbers, they claim to only have around 6,000 add-ons. To quote them, "Over 6,000 free, community contributed Add-ons for Firefox - more than for any other browser". And in case you think this data is out of date, notes other 2010 milestones, such as the launch of Firefox 3.6.
