What is Extensions Update Notifier?
"Extensions Update Notifier" is a Chrome extension that keeps you updated about your extensions. With Google Chrome automatically updating its extensions, it becomes challenging to pinpoint when any particular extension gets updated. With this extension installed, you receive notifications whenever an extension, active or disabled, is updated. It also provides access to changelogs if they're present in the Chrome Web Store description. You can control the notifications, close them automatically and even disable the extensions post-auto update.

Google Chrome Extensions are auto-updated. This is cool, no doubt about it, but how do you know when an extension is updated?

You don't until you install this extension.

▸ You will receive a notification when an extension is updated. ▸ If the updated extension has a log of records in its Chrome Web Store description, you can view it directly from the extension. ▸ And unlike other extensions, it also works with disabled extensions.

If you also think Google Chrome should provide an option to toggle extensions updates notifications, go star this issue at http://crbug.com/28556
