Google Chrome is to get the same level of customisation as Mozilla’s Firefox, with a new effort launched to make it possible for developers to create plugins for the popular browser.

Third party applications or addons are attributed to the huge success of Firefox, and is currently the number one most requested feature from Chrome users.

Aaron Boodman and a few others from the Chromium project last week released a design spec detailing their plan for developers.

The document also lists some extensions that the company would like to support, including both an ad and flash blocker – both of which are top addons for Firefox.

Google is yet to give a release date on the feature, but at least work is under way. Stay tuned for more information in the coming months.
