Extensions, applications, and plug-ins
The browser's functionality can be significantly expanded with the use of special programs — extensions, applications, and plug-ins. These programs are provided both by Yandex and by other developers.
Extensions are embedded in the browser and become a part of its interface; they appear as extra bars or buttons in the browser window. By default, your 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.
You can manage extensions in browser settings.
Apps are embedded in the browser, but in contrast to extensions, they have their own visual interface. There are different kinds of apps: games, utilities, business tools, etc. There are no apps installed in your browser by default.
You can manage apps in browser settings.
Note. The Apps tab appears in Tableau only if an app is installed.
A plug-in is embedded in the browser but does not normally have a visual interface, and is generally intended for handling various 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 specific content (for example, a video). To display this content properly, you must install a plug-in.
You can manage plug-ins in browser settings.
