Microsoft has its own extension store: 

https://microsoftedge.microsoft.com/addons/category/Edge-Extensions

 

Opera has its own extension store:

https://addons.opera.com/en/

 

Google Chrome has its own extension store:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions

 

I call them extensions but they are also called add-ons too.

 

Google lets Microsoft and Opera browsers to install extensions from Chrome extension store but this is Not happening the other way around.

Both Microsoft and Opera are blocking Google Chrome browser from installing extensions from their stores.

 

This is clearly and obviously Unfair. Imagine if Google had done the same thing..

The number of extensions in Opera and Microsoft extension stores in total, barely constitute even 1% of the extensions available on the Chrome web store.

 

so yes I'm very glad that Google is letting us install extensions from Their extension store and not blocking access to us just like Microsoft and Opera is doing right now.

 

I do hope Microsoft change this and let other browsers to be able to install extensions/add-ons from Microsoft extension store.

Have you considered the possibility that extensions for Microsoft EdgeChromium and Opera browsers (both of which are unGoogled to one extent or the other) might not work properly with Google Chrome?

 

Yes I have,
Now you consider the same possibility for the Google chrome extensions.
