    Inline installations of Chrome extensions no longer possible


    Google today confirmed that it is working on banning installations of Chrome extensions from third party websites. The software giant allowed users to install the Chrome extensions from third party websites for its Google Chrome web browser.

    But now the company plans to stop the inline installations of the extensions for its Google Chrome web browser. The company has received issues with regards to deceptive uses of the installations of the Chrome extensions on third party websites.

    To stop the deceptive usage the company has decided to permanently retire the inline installations. In a statement the company says that the extensions starting June 12, 2018 will redirect the users to the Chrome Web Store in a new tab.

    “Extensions first published on June 12, 2018, or later, that attempt to call the chrome.webstore.install() function will automatically redirect the user to the Chrome Web Store in a new tab to complete the installation,” explains James Wagner, Extensions Platform Product Manager.

    The new depreciated inline installations are expected to be available later this summer with the release of Google Chrome 71. The company for the convenience of users has laid down the specific date September 12, 2018 is when the company will disable the inline installation for existing extensions.

    Starting September 12, 2018 any extensions installed on the Chrome Browser from third party websites will automatically redirect users to the Chrome Web Store.

    Along with the discontinuation of the inline installations of extensions the company also plans to retire the inline install API method in early December 2018 when the company expects to release Google Chrome 71 which will not contain the API method.

    The company advises the developers those who are unable to publish their extensions on the Chrome Web Store or are not willing to do due to the changes in the company’s policies will be left with no choice but to retire their Chrome extensions.

    This step, the company says, will be helping users in the upcoming days which would make Chrome a safer place to browse.
