The Whatfix Store is a Chrome Store-like repository for Chrome and Edge (Chromium) extensions to reduce the time to update content to a few minutes as opposed to a few days when using the Chrome Store.

The Whatfix Store extension when generated can be deployed and installed for both Chrome and Edge (Chromium) browsers.

Extensions are hosted and served from Whatfix servers and not from the Chrome Store which makes publishing content a significantly faster process.
