Extension FAQs

What is a Chrome Extension?
Extensions are extra features and functionality that you can add to Google Chrome.

Why do I need to install the extension?
This extension is only needed when viewing prototype files stored on a local drive in Chrome. Prototypes hosted on web server can be viewed in Chrome without the extension.

Why does this extension require a high access level?
Access is required so the scripts and frames within the prototype can work within the file:// protocol (local files). Axure does not track or access any of your information.

How do I install without an internet connection?
Open the Extensions page in Chrome (Step 2). Then, open Windows Explorer or Finder and drag "resources/chrome/axure-chrome-extension.crx" in this prototype folder to the Extensions page.
