Why are extensions for Google Chrome so popular?
Google Chrome is today, and sorry for Firefox , the browser par excellence in the market. Its popularity is the result of its browsing speed, convenience when synchronizing at all times with your Google account and of course, its extensions.
Chrome extensions are small features or tools that you can install in your browser from the Chrome Web Store. You can find them of all kinds, from VPNs to browse anonymously, ad blockers or services to immediately translate any web page you visit. There are almost infinite extensions and all of them have been developed to improve the long hours you spend browsing the Internet.
Alternatives to Kiwi Browser that allow you to install extensions for Chrome
Although Kiwi is an excellent browser and compatible with most of the current extensions of the Chrome Web Store, you probably want alternatives.
If you have searched Google, you have surely found several pages that ensure you can install Chrome extensions using the Android version of Firefox. These ensure that to achieve this you will need to install an extension from the Firefox store called Chrome Store Foxified that would allow you to import extensions from the Chrome store. This method is outdated and no longer works because Chrome Store Foxified has been completely removed from the Firefox store.
However, do not worry, we have been testing different Kiwi-like browsers and the only one we have found that offers a simple installation of extensions for Chrome is the Yandex browser. Under these lines we explain everything about it.
Yandex Browser may not be well known in Spain, but it is one of the most popular browsers in Russia. It uses Chromium and allows you to add extensions quickly and easily. You can download the browser safely under these lines.
To install a Chrome extension in Yandex Browser you will first need to visit the Chrome Web Store . Once on the page, look for the extension you want to add to the browser and click on it. To finish, simply select the blue “Add to Chrome” button. Next the browser will ask you to give permission to the extension to be added to your mobile. Select “Add extension”
As you can see, the process is identical to that of Kiwi Browser. To activate or deactivate the extension you will have to press the menu button (it looks like three vertical dots in the upper right corner) and select the relevant extension.
To remove the extension, follow the same steps we have described for Kiwi. First, type “chrome: // extensions” in the navigation bar and then press the “Delete” option on the extension you wish to uninstall. As with Kiwi, Yandex Browser does not support all extensions of the Chrome Web Store. However, it is a good alternative to always keep in mind.
Which is better option, Kiwi Browser or Yandex Browser?
Both browsers offer a very similar experience when you can use extensions from the comfort of your mobile, which is why we find it difficult to choose one. However, Kiwi offers an interface much more similar to Google Chrome and also provides greater compatibility in terms of the ability to import extensions. That is why if you are only looking for a browser similar to Chrome and that accepts extensions, we prefer the balance towards Kiwi.
