How to Install a Plug-in for Chrome


You are here:

Google Chrome allows you to build the browser up with the availability of plug-ins, apps, extensions and themes. Plug-ins assists Chrome in playing specific types of content, including Flash animation, and can be selectively installed when needed. Apps are essentially shortcut links added to the browser, which direct you to a separate website to access the app. Extensions, on the other hand, are integrated into the Chrome browser to extend its capabilities. Themes simply alter the look of the browser. Apps, extensions and themes are freely available, and can be installed directly from the Chrome Web Store.
