      Hi Rajat,

      As with many third party products, some are still working on being compatible with Lightning, however I think you’ll find that the majority of these do support Lightning. Some of these products also have newer versions that didn’t quite make it onto our list because they don’t yet have enough users and reviews.

      It’s also worth noting that there are still many organisations using Classic and therefore these Chrome Extensions are very much applicable to them.

        Most of them are not updated since few years.
        You should filter out all that are not updated since one year. Most probably they are using some old libraries and may cause security risk.
        At least add to table last update date of each extension.

          Hi Pawel,

          Thanks for your feedback! We will certainly take into consideration your suggestion to add the last update of each extension – I agree this would be useful.

          Best, Christine
