Chrome Web Store on a timely basis blocks extensions from their platform if they do not follow terms and conditions,
So extensions may work now but in future, they will be blocked,
Although you can download and install extensions from outside of Chrome Web Store but it’s not a recommended way.
Only Install extensions if you trust the website from where you are downloading.

There are many software’s available for various platforms.
