Google Chrome browser extensions like AdBlock also exist for the Roblox web client, with the goal of making the online experience that much better. While some extensions do improve the Roblox client, we don't think the risk to your PC is worth it.
3 Reasons to Avoid the Best Roblox Browser Extensions
Roblox browser extensions are programs available on the Chrome Web Store that can be installed into Google Chrome. The two most popular Roblox extensions we've seen floating around are BTRoblox and Roblox+. Both extensions add customization features such as modifying the look of the Roblox website and immediate notifications when a new item enters the Avatar Shop, amongst many other features.
While some extensions are created to make the game better, we don't feel the risk is greater than the reward. Nor have we at PGG tested any extensions. Here are three reasons why we think most Roblox players should avoid downloading them.
1. Potential Viruses
While additional features from Roblox extensions are cool and even helpful, these browser extensions are made by third-party developers, many of which aren't affiliated with the Roblox company. As a result, downloading these browser extensions come with the risks of downloading a virus.
Roblox scams are a real thing. While some Roblox browser extensions are safe, extensions aren't vetted properly. Meaning, downloading random extensions pose the risk of downloading a virus to your PC. The last thing we'd want to see is a Roblox player lose their hardware, their Roblox account, or even their hard-earned Robux due to an unnecessary virus.
2. Roblox Extensions don't make you a better player
Will these Roblox browser extensions make you a better player? No, and they don't have any effect on your actual gameplay. Meaning, extensions have zero effect on Roblox games. Instead, these extensions only enhance the Roblox web client to make for a slightly better experience, adding features that might otherwise feel missing from the Roblox client.
Note: Roblox extensions will absolutely not give players free Robux. Avoid these extensions at all costs!
3. The Roblox Client is already pretty great as it stands
Overall, we like the Roblox client. Customizing our avatar? Check. Browsing the Avatar Shop? Check. Discovering fun new games? Check, again.
Most Roblox players already benefit from the built-in features included by the Roblox company. Many won't need the missing features that are created by third-party Roblox browser extensions. And chances are, the Roblox company is already testing these features for future release anyway. As regular players, we feel the Roblox client gets the job done.
