Apps & Extensions


Extensions

Web Apps are online programs that run right inside your browser, rather than needing to be installed to your hard drive like traditional programs. With web apps you can run your programs from any computer and from any place that you have Internet access. Many web apps also have off-line abilities for those times you do not have connectivity. Add an app on one computer, and access it on all your computers.
Before you add apps and extensions to your Chrome Browser ensure you know where to disable them and remove them.
How to find them, install them, use them and remove them.
