In Google Chrome 15, how can I export my extensions to another computer?

This question doesn't apply to Chrome version 15.

I'm trying to copy an extension that no longer exists in the webstore.

exactly which extensions are you using? there might be better alternatives in web store or the developer might have renamed the extension... –  tumchaaditya Jan 29 '13 at 4:43

Have you tried the Synch function? Wrench->Options->Personal Stuff->Sync->Set up synch. Then you can select to include your extensions.

Syncing doesn't transfer extension options. You have to migrate the whole profile. –  dnbrv Dec 30 '11 at 22:14
    
@dnbtv, I do not understand what you mean. There is an extension option in the Configure synch pagelet. What then is that for? –  Bobson Dec 30 '11 at 23:41

That syncs only extensions. You have to re-configure their preferences on the new machine. –  dnbrv Dec 30 '11 at 23:44
    
I think it wont work....not for extensions that are no longer in web store... –  tumchaaditya Jan 29 '13 at 4:42

You can find All extension here (what you have installed on Google Chrome):

C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions

if you have created a profile in Chrome then it will be present in Profile Name instead of Default in above address. Just Copy extension file and paste in newer Chrome. You must be careful extension may be incompatible.

I don't think this relates to Chrome V. 15 –  wizlog Nov 27 '11 at 18:33

Could you perhaps explain this instead? We prefer that you explain how to do things, as opposed to simply posting links –  Simon Sheehan Nov 27 '11 at 18:45

You can use the Share Extensions extension which allows you to export as BBCode, HTML, Wiki or text list as well as share via Twitter.

That extension doesn't not do what the OP requested. –  Dan D. Nov 23 '12 at 14:48
