Chrome Extensions
Recently i have written an article about the update in Google's Chrome browser, which disables the installation of an extension or script from outer source other than Official Chrome Web Store. Thus users can     only install and use applications, extensions and games from Official Chrome Web Store. I have given a method by which we can install any required extension, application, Game or script from unknown sources and websites like  Greasemonkey and userscripts.
But that method was time consuming and was not good enough if you are a regular user of unknown scripts and extensions. Here is the other method of adding scripts, extensions from unknown sources :
Install Chrome Extensions From Unknown Sources - Add Extensions and Scripts From Websites Other Than Web Store
          In case if you are developing your own application, extension or game then you have to drag and drop your script file to extensions page of chrome or if you are a regular user of custom scripts and tweaks then you might not happy with that old method. (Link is given above.)
           But don't worry, i am here with a new working method or tweak by which we can bypass this restriction of Chrome browser forever. By using this tweak we can Enable the installation of custom scripts, apps and extensions from unknown sources.The advantage of this method is that we have to do this tweak once and after that, we can enjoy adding scripts, extensions or applications from unknown sources forever.
Lets do the tweak. This tweak is working for Windows. If you are a Mac user or Linux user then you can read the other method of adding scripts to chrome browser.
