Uninstall a Google Chrome extension on a Mac

March 1, 2010 5 Comments

Obviously, Google Chrome extensions are cool (like plugins for Firefox), as they enable you to get your browser to do new things. But having installed the bit.ly one, it turned out to be a bit of a pain.

Instructions on the internet for how to remove / delete / uninstall extensions for Google's Chrome (I'm running version 5.0.307.11 beta) are sadly lacking - or way overcomplicated. It turned out to be easy.

Go to the Window menu at the top and then click Extensions. There you'll see a list of extensions you're running - and the option to disable or uninstall them.
