What is an extension?

Extensions (or add-ons) are programs embedded in classic Yandex.Browser that allow you to expand your browser's functionality (in order to, for example, get rid of annoying ads). There are many extensions available, and some of them could be considered malware. Yandex has analyzed the available extensions and studied user preferences in order to select the safest, most popular, and most useful extensions for classic Yandex.Browser.

To go to the extensions page, click   → Extensions.

To install a browser extension that is listed on the page that opens, flip the switch to On next to the name of the extension.
