Extensions, applications, and plug-ins

Browser features can be expanded with special programs — extensions, applications and plug-ins. These programs are provided both by Yandex and by other developers.

  • Extensions
  • Apps
  • Plug-ins

An extension is embedded in the browser and becomes a part of its interface; it looks like an extra bar or button in the browser window. By default, Yandex browser does not have a single extension installed.

You can install extensions from the special Web Store or from the sites of third-party developers. Install extensions only from sites that you trust.

Installing an extension from the Web Store
  1. Go to the web store.
  2. Select an extension and click + Free.
  3. Confirm installation of the extension.
Installing an extension from third-party developer sites
  1. Download the CRX file with the selected extension.
  2. In the SmartBox, enter the address browser://extensions.
  3. Drag the downloaded file to the browser window and confirm installing the extension.

You can manage installed extensions in browser settings.

A plug-in is embedded in the browser but does not normally have a visual interface, and is generally intended for handling specific types of content. Examples of plug-ins are Windows Media Player or the PDF document viewing program Adobe PDF Plug-In.

Usually, you need to install plug-ins when you visit a site that has a specific type of content (for example, a video). To display this content properly, you must install a plug-in.

Installing a plug-in

The browser will inform you that an appropriate plug-in needs to be installed; you will see a notification in the upper part of the page. You will need to download the latest version of the plug-in from the developer's website and install it yourself.

You can manage installed plug-ins in browser settings.

!Seeing and disabling a plug-in
  1. Click the button

  3. In the Privacy section, click Content settings

  4. In the window that opens, find the Plug-ins section and click Disable individual plug-ins

  5. The Plug-ins page opens, where all installed plug-ins are listed. To disable a plug-in, click the Disable link under its name.

!Deleting a plug-in

You cannot delete an installed plug-in from the browser interface. You must use the standard features of your operating system for deleting an application.

  • In Windows: go to Control PanelPrograms and components and delete the unwanted plug-in.
  • In Mac OS: go to the Applications folder and move the unwanted program's icon to the trash.
!Updating an outdated plug-in

Plug-ins are not updated automatically and can become outdated. The browser detects outdated plug-ins: if the plug-in is outdated, you will see a message about it in the address bar.

  • To install the latest version o f a plug-in, select Update plug-in.
  • If you want to continue running the plug-in without upgrading, click Run this time. The next time you start the browser, you will see a message that the plug-in is blocked.
You can set exceptions for plug-ins in the browser settings. For more information about exceptions
