What is a CRX file?
A .CRX file is a Google Chrome Extension file.
Files that contain the .crx file extension are used by the Google Chrome Internet browser. Google Chrome is a browser much like the Internet Explorer browser distributed by Microsoft, but Chrome is made by Google.
The CRX files that are used by the Chrome browser contain plug-in files, also referred to as Google Chrome extension files. These files are installed onto a user's Google Chrome browser application in order to provide the user with additional features, such as custom browser skins, ad-blockers, screenshot tools, etc.
