Installing The Interceptor on Google Chrome 

Google Chrome Extensions are undergoing a significant change, upgrading from Manifest "V2" to "V3", a change that will either require structural changes to continue functioning or their removal from the extension store.

The Interceptor is currently a "Manifest V2" extension and while it is possible to download Chrome V2 extension that were published before the V3 announcement, it is no longer possible to offer new V2 extensions for official download and seamless installation.

Along with other Chrome extension developers, Dark Florist is continuing to work on a way to provide Google Chrome users a seamless installation.

In the mean time, it is possible to try out the extension using methods not normally targeted at end users. Our current recommendation is to use Firefox when using The Interceptor, but the follow these steps if you are an advanced user and determined to get it working in Google Chrome.

1. Download .zip file of The Interceptor
Download the most most recent .zip file from The Interceptor GitHub releases page

2. Unzip the downloaded .zip file

Normally just double-clicking the file will unzip it. You don't need to create a new directory for it, all contents unzip to a single directory.

3. Click menu items Window -> Extensions

4. Enable "Developer mode"


5. "Load unpacked" button at top left

6. Select the folder 

7. The Interceptor is now installed, pin to extensions bar
