Try New Lightning Features with the Lightning Extension for Chrome

Are you an early adopter of the latest and greatest technology … or do you want to become one? With the Lightning Extension for Chrome, you can gain access to the latest Lightning features and try them before everyone else.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in all editions.

Why: The Lightning Extension lets us roll out new features on a continuous basis. The initial release of the Lightning Extension contains three new features.
  • The Component Customization feature helps declutter your screen. Use the Component customization icon icon in the header to hide components on record and home pages.

  • The Dark Mode feature gives Salesforce a dark theme that’s easy on the eyes.

  • The Link Grabber feature makes all Lightning links open in a single browser tab.



Dark Mode doesn’t support dashboards or Einstein Analytics.

How: Download the Lightning Extension on the Chrome Web Store. From the Lightning Extension features panel, choose which features to turn on.
