@terdon It depends on the extension you installed. I installed Quick Note which is the one I pasted. – h__ Feb 19 '13 at 23:44

This is easy, Just type the following command in the terminal

google-chrome "chrome-extension://mijlebbfndhelmdpmllgcfadlkankhok/app.html"

You can even send some flags to open in a new window without search bar.
