Hi Joy,

Yes, you can use Chrome extensions with the Viasat Browser.  You can install and enable them just like you did in Chrome.  

Thanks for your question and I hope you are using and enjoying the Viasat Browser.

1Password does not work with Viasat Browser which really stinks as it a very useful extension for managing passwords.

The browser is Chrome based, correct? So any Chrome extensions should work?

No true. I have several extensions that I was using with Chrome that do not work in Viasat.

The browser is based on Chromium, which is the same open source codebase as Chrome. So yes, any Chrome extensions should work.

If you try any and they don’t, feel free to reach out to the browser team through the feedback feature built into the browser and we would be happy to look into it as well.
