Google Chrome Extension and New-New Tab

Starting in March 2009, Google Chrome begins to support extension. Google Chrome releases updates via 3 release channels:
  • Stable channel.
  • Beta channel (monthly update).
  • Dev channel: for developer preview.
First I upgrade my Google Chrome to Dev channel via early access release channels. Once everything is completed, it shows I'm running version 3.0.193.0 (as of now).

Then I modify the startup argument of the shortcut (or run from cmdlne) as below:
"C:\Documents and Settings\mylogin\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --enable-extensions --load-extension="c:\myextension" --enable-user-scripts --new-new-tab-page
In case you wish to list/uninstall extension: type chrome://extensions at the address bar.
