Google So, Google has made it very hard to install Chrome extensions outside of the Chrome Web Store - out of security concerns. In addition, they sprung this on users and extension developers without much consultation or consideration for their concerns. As always - understandable to protect users, but the handling has an almost Apple-like bluntness to it. Next up: how to jailbreak your browser?

Since when? I've known of some carrier ROMs that have this ability taken out either by the phone manufacturer or your carrier, but I've not seen any stock Android rom impose such a limitation.

MMM, I've got an Android Phone and Tablet, I've installed a few apps "not" from the Andriod Store. You know like Amazon's store? You might wanna look at your settings on your device and check "Unknown Sources" ;)
