Awesome extension that works well with Brave. To use this effectively, what I had to do: - Go to Settings -> Extensions - Find Chrome Extension source viewer and click Details - Enable "Pin to toolbar" Now when you go to an extension page, you can click the yellow "CRX" icon to view or download the extension. It's already saved me from at least 2 sketchy extensions that were trying to do WAY more than they should.
