Chrome help needed

by
I am needing help from all you chrome nerds here in locating some add-ons I use extensively on FA and IB that can be used with Chrome. I am considering moving to chrome as as of late firefox seems to be going downhill with every patch they 'make' us get. another reason for my coming move, is that IB loads far faster on chrome than with firefox (which was the main reason why I have been slow in sorting my inbox here that currently has 9312 submissions).

Grease monkey is one as there are many FA and IB scripts I use. Other add-ons I use are:

I have the FA extender 2.1
FA filter 0.9.4 (found and installed)
greasemononkey 0.9.20
adblock plus 2.0.3 (found and installed)
flagfox 4.1.16 (found and installed)
youtube downloader 3.5 (found and installed)

Google Chrome is superior in every way... except Google isn't very private... I'd consider removing your unique ID with this:

There's plenty of add-ons for Chrome, just most use different names from Firefox.

Check out Tampermonkey, I think it's the same as Greasemonkey: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dhdgffkkebhmk...

I'm guessing screengrab is a screen capture thingy. You can find those easily on Google Chrome Add-on store. Here's one: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cpngackimfmof...

Here's Google Chrome's add-on stuff. They call them Extensions x3

I'll fully admit I'm probably a Google fanboy, but what's the point of removing your ID? I mean I have mine linked to my Gmail and stuff. Wouldn't removing that reduce functionality? =o

Each Google Chrome installation contains a unique ID that identifies its user. UnChrome replaces your unique ID with null values so that your browser can no longer be identified. The functionality of Google Chrome is not affected by this.

I think that's been removed by Google a while back:
" In March 2010, Google devised a new method to collect installation statistics: the unique ID token included with Chrome is now only used for the first connection that Google Update makes to its server. This sole remaining non-optional user tracking mechanism is removed following the server ping.

You really trust Google? x3 They're exactly like Facebook.

Well I've read the privacy policy, and unlike Facebook I don't remember hearing about any massive breaks in that policy. No company is perfect, though so I'm sure someone can dig up something. But I've been using Gmail, Gvoice, Gtalk, etc for the past 5+ years without a problem. And you'll notice that none of what I linked for sources was from google.com ;)

I still don't trust Google, but I don't deny their product's greatness.
