One of the characteristic features of desktop browsers like Google Chrome are the extensiones. Through them, users can additional features as a password manager or some system to manage the windows. Firefox, Edge and Chrome (and browsers based on Chromium) have their own stores of extensions, but in Android, in general, tend not to be available.
however, and if not you can add extensions in Chrome for Android, you can install a third party browser fairly well-known: Kiwi. Developed by arnaud42 (user on XDA), Kiwi fruit allows you to install extensions simple and easy way, so let’s look at how this is done.
How to install extensions in Kiwi
Before anything, we should make a clarification: not all extensions are compatible with Kiwi. The support is limited to those that do not use the binary code x86, so it is likely that the extensions to more complex can not be installed. That being said, some of the most popular as uBlock Origin or TamperMonkey work without a problem.

that being Said, let’s get started. The first thing is to install Kiwi from Google Play. You will find the link at the end of this text. Once installed, open any window and follow these steps:
- Tap the three dots in the upper-right area to open the settings.
- Select “Extensions”.
- Click on the text “Google” or tap on the three little lines in the upper left and select “Open Kiwi Web Store”. Both accesses lead to the same site: the store of Chrome extensions.
- Select one of the listed or search for one you want to use.
- Tap on it and select “Add to Chrome”. The download will be done automatically.
- When you download, Kiwi will show you the information for which the extension can be accessed.
- Select “Ok” and wait a couple of seconds to complete the installation.
When the installation has completed, you’ll simply have to re-tap the three dots in the upper right, and scrolling down to the bottom to see that, indeed, the extension is installed. If you press on it you’ll be able to activate it, manage it, or set it to pleasure.
And how do you uninstall? Simple. Type in the search bar “chrome://extensions” (without the quotation marks), so you’ll have access to the listing of all the extensions that you have installed. Below each one of them will appear the “Delete” button. Click on it, accept and ready, extension uninstalled.
As you can see, the installation process is quite fast and does not require technical knowledge or anything like that. If you are interested in, Kiwi is completely free and, as we said before, you can download it from Google Play.
