The challenge was simple. Take a longtime Firefox user who is reliant on his FF extensions and get him to switch to Google Chrome.
On February 7th, I updated Chrome and installed a series of extensions that would perform the work of my old Firefox add-ons. If you're curious as to which extensions I installed, all the deets are in this entry.
Google Chrome is now ready for prime time. The extensions available are many and awesome. Here's my extension toolbar as it looks right now.
I still plan to keep my portable version of Firefox up to date, and when I need a second browser instance it will get the call, but I'm going to stick with Chrome as my default browser. It's come a long way, baby.
