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 ?Web Hosting | Reseller | VPS

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.

Yes there is an extension..but its super terrible to use . gnome-terminal /konsole etc work much better

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.VirtuBox - Hosting, Managed Services & Support

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.
