Incredible news! We’ve given the ExpressVPN browser extension a complete overhaul!

Letting you remotely control the ExpressVPN app from your Chrome or Firefox browser, the extension has a brand new design and comes bundled with a host of killer features.

Because it works in conjunction with the full app, the ExpressVPN extension gives you all the protection of a VPN, unlike some other so-called VPN extensions out there. It can also help you spoof your HTML5 geolocation, and it features the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s HTTPS Everywhere.

HTTPS Everywhere ensures that you are automatically directed to the safer HTTPS version of thousands of major websites. What’s more, it works whether or not you’re connected to the VPN.

But that’s not all. The new browser extension has lots of other impressive features.
