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.
