According to Google..."Extensions are small software programs that customize the browsing experience. They enable users to tailor Chrome functionality and behavior to individual needs or preferences. ... They can range from a simple icon, such as the Google Mail Checker extension shown on the right, to overriding an entire page."
We designed mote as a Chrome extension because we wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to work within your favorite document, design and project software. Extensions allow us to work within the browser to provide you with a unique experience.
