What is an extension?

Add-ons (or extensions) are programs embedded in Yandex.Browser that allow you to expand your browser's functionality (e.g. get email notifications or disable intrusive ads). Extensions are created by different providers; some extensions may be useful, while others may be malicious.

After analyzing all existing extensions and taking user preferences into account, the most popular, useful, and safe extensions were selected. To go to the extensions page, click  Extensions.
