For Android users, it's now possible to enjoy your favorite Chrome desktop extensions on your phone. These include HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger, Grammarly and many more. Unfortunately, the default Chrome browser installed on Android smartphones is not available. With Kiwi Browser, a Chrome-based app that delivers the same fast-paced experience, you can now use desktop Chrome extensions on mobile devices as well.
