    getglueOne of the most anticipated Chrome extensions, was an offering from AdaptiveBlue for the popular application Glue. Glue has long been popular in Firefox. The extension has arrived, but how is it doing?

    Now around a day into its release, the Glue  extension has found a few high-powered fans, including Sam Sethi and Fred Wilson. But if you view the extensions page, it has accrued a mere 1,200 installs.

    Compare this to other top apps in the Chrome extensions gallery, with dozens of applications with over 5,000 installs. In fact, the Glue extension for Chrome is currently the 124th most popular Chrome extension.

    What is going on? In my testing, the Chrome Glue plugin has been working great, without even one bug. Have we all merely over-estimated how popular Glue has become? Or, is there something else going on?
