I like to have the extensions like Gmail Checker and Google Voice checker closest to my eyes, therefore closer to the url bar. I have tried disabling and enabling extensions to order them correctly, but once I close chrome, they appear in a different order (always the same undesirable "different" order). Is there a way to prevent them from rearranging themselves? Thanks

Unfortunately, as of now, there seem to be no way to make Chrome remember the order of extension icons.

Chrome 5.0.322.2 dev edition allows you to reorder the Extensions by dragging.

huh...I wonder when it'll happen.. – eqzx Dec 20 '09 at 17:37
Pitch in a comment, more comments means more people asking means more likely they're going to add it :) Else if you you a bit of programming, you could probably try your hand at it :) – Sathya Dec 20 '09 at 17:43
i know python and c++, no java... – eqzx Dec 21 '09 at 15:35
IIRC Chromium uses C++ – Sathya Dec 21 '09 at 17:44
I have 10.0.648.134 on Windows 7 64, and I can drag the extensions to reorder, but they get rearranged when I restart chrome. – Ben Collins Mar 17 '11 at 13:51

Actually, doesn't seem like dragging the extension icons worked till 5.0.366.0 dev.

I had 5.0.360.0 with which I couldn't drag and drop the icons, hence I ended up here. However, as I went to Chrome > About to double check which developer version I had, Chrome had automatically installed 5.0.366.0. So after a restart, dragging the extension icons now worked... lol
