    Chrome SSH extension?

    I used Chrome browser all the time and rarely use other browsers as Firefox, Safari or Opera. I heard that it has a extension to use SSH from chrome. Is it secure and it is a good way to connect to our hosting server from Chrome?

    I'm sure it is secure but could have security issues, I would never use it.

    Why do you want to do this ? Why don't you just use an SSH client like Putty ?

    Agree with LJSHost, we should not use an extension from browser to access SSH and it can make your terminal load slowly or how you will trust the author.
    For me, Putty is a good program to use and access server. It is pretty light too if compared with other programs.

    Terminal is super easy to use and so is SSH. I don't think that a Chrome extension, while convenient, would be the most secure option for SSH. Also, I'd be worried about accidentally messing up the browser when trying to do a command like control+c.

    The Google Chrome SSH extension was designed for the Google Compute Engine.

    It's only useful if you use Google Cloud Platform.

    Thanks for your comment, what about the feature that my hosting provider is providing which I can open SSH from my web browser instead of using a tool like Putty?

    The secure shell chrome extension provided by Google can be used to access to any openssh server, but is mostly used on the Google Compute Engine.
    To access to the shell of an instance, you just have to click on the button ssh and it automatically open the secure shell extension.



    However, I do not think it will be possible to do the same (to automatically logged in) with other providers than Google.
    All informations about the extensions are available here : https://chromium.googlesource.com/apps/libapps/+/master/nassh/doc/FAQ.md
