How to install the NoChatBot Chrome extension on non-Chrome browsers

If you use a non-Chrome browser, such as Edge, Firefox, Brave, or Vivaldi, among others, you can still get the No ChatBot Chrome extension.

This is because almost all modern browsers are Chromium-based, sharing the same or similar codebase with Chrome.

For these other browsers, go to your extensions or add-ons library and search for the option to use the Chrome web store.
