It's a great day for Google Chrome mobile browser and iOS 8 users today. The search engine giant has just issued an update to the iOS Chrome browser app, adding support for third-party App Extensions using the multi-purpose Share sheet. Folks who use apps like Pintrest, Flipboard, Evernote, or any other supported applications, can now share internet content from Chrome with only a few taps.

After updating Google Chrome on iOS, users can head on over to the menu tab (top right), tap Share, and the tap the More button. This will bring users to a menu where anyone can enable or disable third-party App Extensions. After enabling a few, going to the Share menu will now show sharing options for whichever apps were enabled previously.

This is a great feature since this means Chrome will no longer be limited to sharing only on Facebook and Twitter social networks. As soon as developers update apps with third-party App Extensions, more sharing websites will be implemented for use with Google Chrome.
