PixieBrix, by and large, works on any Chromium-based browser. If you have questions or need official support, please contact [email protected].

Browser Extension Distribution Scenarios

There are two approaches to distributing the PixieBrix Browser Extension:
  • Scenario #1: Self-Serve Installation from Chrome Web Store. Add the PixieBrix extension to Chrome's “Allow List” so that each team member can individually install the PixieBrix browser extension. Your team members will follow the instructions at Installing the PixieBrix Chrome Browser Extension
  • Scenario #2: Automatic Installation. Add PixieBrix to Chrome's list of "Force Install" extensions to have Chrome automatically install the browser extension on team members' browsers. Your team members will follow the instructions at Linking Your PixieBrix Account.
  • Scenario #3: Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. If you use a VDI, such as Citrix, refer to the Automatic Installation instructions
