Apps and Extensions

  1. An Extension is adds some sort of functionality across all tabs and windows of your browser, usually by clicking on an icon at the top of the browser.

  2. An App is essentially a stand alone web application that works within a SINGLE browser window. Some of these apps offer OFFLINE options so if you lose your Internet connection, you can still work.
