How to manually update Google Chrome extensions
Google Chrome is a favorite of web browsers for Windows. One of the reasons we like is automatically updated in the background. You will not receive annoying notification of the update and do not get pop-ups that ask you to restart the browser. Everything happens quietly and works as expected.
The same behavior also applies to Google Chrome extensions. There are a number of Chrome extensions that add functionality to your browser, which gives you another reason to use the Google browser. You have large areas that can improve Gmail, save YouTube videos, or even block the cricket and other issues that do not like on the web.
Much of this is possible with Mozilla Firefox as well, but there is a big difference. Chrome extensions just to update in the background, unlike many supplements that Mozilla Firefox will ask you to restart the browser to manually apply the latest update.
Like most things in life, the automatic updating of extensions does not always work. Recently, one of our favorite Google Chrome extensions for YouTube – Streamus – stopped working. A YouTube update code had Streamus break. As a result, the developer has identified and corrected the problem and issued an updated version Streamus, but the latest update is pending review by Google.
Even after the extension, for any reason, the automatic updates are not in play was given. Chrome extensions updates on their own schedule, and if an extension is broken, you do not want to wait for the update process to begin. Fortunately there is a solution for these cases.
