How to: The Complete Seedr Chrome Extension Tutorial  

This extension can be used in many browsers other than Chrome itself. The other browsers are based on Chromium, an open-source web browser codebase that is used as a foundation for Chrome and many other browsers. We have a partial list of the other browsers that support Chrome Extensions in our Browser Extensions answer.

If you use one of these less common browsers, the exact steps in this tutorial may be different for you, but should still be similar enough to follow.
