Chrome now has Apps and Extensions. Hundreds of them are available in the Chrome Web Store, and many of them, are Free, at least for now. Each extension brings a new experience of browsing. I use Chrome on Ubuntu Linux, and slowly, these extensions are changing the way I am using browsers. And thus, the way I use computers. Some of these extensions:
Le Newz is a totally new way of keeping up with the news - the experience beats Google News hollow. Something equally interesting, that does something similar is NewsSquares.

GreTouch is a new way of improving one's vocabulary: It has a word visualizer -- you can browse a word at a time -- and it shows a picture that helps you visualize the meaning of the word. For example, the word, "abusive" shows a photograph of Harbhajan Singh and Symonds eyeball-to-eyeball. The word, "canter" shows a picture of a horse in mid-air while cantering. The word, "Hedgerow" actually shows a picture of one, which makes it so clear and understandable, and hence, easy to memorize.
Ge.TT is a file-sharing utility, without the need to upload! Regardless of size, you can share files on twitter, facebook or email. I cannot understand how it works, but it does work.
And many more - I am still exploring.
