Even though it is quite easy to disable Chrome extensions, but this extension makes that task even easier. Just one click and anyextension is enabled / disabled.

How to Enable/Disable Chrome Extensions With Extensity?
Once installed, you’ll get an Extensity icon on the right side of Chrome address bar. Click on that button and you’ll get list of all the installed Google Chrome extensions (Enabled and Disabled both). Enabled extensions will appear highlighted, while disabled extensions will appear a little diminished.
Click on any extension and its status will be changed. Enabled extension will be disabled and vice-versa. Note that Extensity will not uninstall any extension.
If you want to uninstall any extension, then you can click on the shortcut button (above the extension list) to reach Chrome Extension settings. You can then uninstall and/or modify other settings as well.
You can also use this extension as shortcut for Google Apps as well. It shows a list of installed Google Chrome apps and you can click on any of those to open that app. There is no enabling / disabling for apps; it only has shortcuts to open them.
