Long have we searched for an easy way to sync extensions across multiple machines, and for users that day has finally come. If you’re running the Dev channel, here’s how you can easily enable extension syncing.

Chrome has had bookmark, preference, and theme syncing for awhile, but today’s Dev channel update introduced the most heavily anticipated syncing feature to the list: extension syncing. Just like your bookmarks or preferences, after enabling extension syncing, any copy of Chrome on which you are logged into your Account will have the same extensions as your machines—so from now on, you only have to download, install, and configure them once. (Or at least in theory; as this is the dev channel, you can expect that you might encounter a bug or three.)

To enable the feature, download the dev build (if you haven’t already) and right click on its shortcut. Choose “Properties” and in the target box, add —enable-sync-extensions to the end of the line (outside of the quotes). From now on, using that shortcut to launch Chrome will have extension syncing enabled.
