This extension implements Native Host messaging to allow installation of ClickOnce (MIME application/x-ms-application) applications through Microsoft® .NET.
ClickOnce is a Microsoft® technology that enables the user to install and run Windows-based smart client applications by clicking a link in a web page. The core principle of ClickOnce is to ease the deployment of Windows applications. ClickOnce is a component of Microsoft® .NET Framework 2.0 and later, and is present in installations of Internet Explorer™. This extension adds that component to Chrome™, Chromium™, Firefox™ and Opera™.
• Protocol independent
• Case insensitive
• Legacy compatibility
This extension will identify itself various ways (for legacy compatibility with certain sites), and for that it will add a couple of variables to the window object. This requires the "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" permission.
When a ClickOnce link is clicked, Microsoft® .NET must handle the content. Google Chrome™ won't let you communicate directly with dotNET. That's why we need a middle man ("Native Messaging Host") installed with the extension to do this for you. This requires the "Communicate with cooperating native applications" permission.

Terms and conditions:
Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
