ChromePlus is *based* on Chromium, which is a FOSS version of Chrome, and thus is different than the base Google Chrome (at least for Windows). While any add-on/plug-in for Chromium would (or should) work in ChromePlus, the same largely isn't true of compatibility between Chrome and ChromePlus (any more than it would be between Chrome and Chromium). For example, ChromePlus is faster in terms of Flash-based pages than Chrome, Forefox 4, or IE (on Windows, that is) there are likely going to be add-in/plug-in differences between ChromePlus and base Chrome; that will also, unfortunately, lead to more, not less, fragmentation of browser usage (I'll likely keep ChromePlus around, simply because of the sheer speed advantage it has with Flash, let alone that it sandboxes Flash better than any other browser right now).

I've been using ChromePlus for a while now. I haven't installed that many extensions for it, but I have 5 currently and I've had no problems with compatibility. ChromePlus doesn't add many features which could cause compatibility issues, and you can disable those, such as mouse gestures, smooth scrolling, adblock, or IE Tab.

I tried it in virtual, has many enhanced options.
But it is something I do not like, if you change the installation directory that gives you the default user / appdata, shows installation error and cannot continue.
I want it in program files, not where they want.

By default Chrome itself installs to AppData..
