In­stall Chrome ex­ten­sions from your phone

Web User - - Best New Browser Tools -

One of the big­gest lim­i­ta­tions to the Chrome app for An­droid and IOS is that you can’t in­stall your favourite ex­ten­sions in the browser – in fact, you can’t in­stall any at all, as you can in the Fire­fox mo­bile app. How­ever, if you stum­ble across an in­ter­est­ing add-on while brows­ing the web on your phone or tablet, there is a handy hid­den op­tion that lets you send it di­rectly to Chrome on your com­puter, so you can try it later. Log into Chrome on your mo­bile de­vice with the same Google ac­count you use on your desk­top, open the Chrome Web Store page for the ex­ten­sion and tap the blue ‘Add to Desk­top’ but­ton, fol­lowed by the green but­ton of the same name. The add-on will then be in­stalled on all com­put­ers on which you’re signed into Chrome.

You can also tap the Share op­tion next to the ‘Add to Desk­top’ but­ton to share de­tails of the ex­ten­sion via email.
