    Hi DH4000,

    On Windows, Chrome extensions can only be installed from the Chrome Web Store, due to a Google policy.

    The only other way to install AdBlock without using the CWS is to download its source code and load it as an unpacked extension. Please however note that you will not be receiving automatic updates for the extension, and that we do not recommend using AdBlock as an unpacked extension for reasons other than testing.

    Hi DH4000,

    It should be still possible to install a CRX file manually on Mac and Linux.
