We are using extensions for our internal development. We know they are save, but they are (obviously) not in the Chrome store.
I’m currently forced to use again Chrome for Development instead of Brave, as I cannot enable the extension. If I activate the developer mode in Brave, then I should have the possibility to enable all extensions. It may need an additional step of confirmation, I’m even fine with a password protection, etc.
But to just have them disabled and not being able to enable even extensions I created myself seems odd. I know my extension does not hurt nor my safety nor my privacy.
