Important notes:

  • Vrome is an open-source project. We do not log your personal information! All required permissions are used for features. You can check the source code here:
  • After install/upgrade, please refresh all tabs to enable all/new Vrome features. Tip: use "<C-r>" (Control + R) to refresh a tab, then try Vrome command "R" to refresh all tabs.
  • Please enable Vrome in incognito mode in order to use commands that require incognito. Check chrome://extensions page.
