What is CRX file?
CRX is a file extension that was introduced to the industry in mid-2010. It is no longer used in newer versions of Google Chrome. It replaced the .XPI extension which was used to create Chrome extensions. These files were designed using XPI syntax and can be viewed using a text editor. Since they are not compatible with newer versions of Chrome, they cannot be opened and saved anymore unless you have an older version of Google Chrome or some other browser installed on your system. There are several variants for this file type such as .CRX, .CRD, etc., but all of them share the same purpose - to create a chrome extension for web browsers such as Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox
