It’s always good to backup Google Chrome extensions to use them on another Computer or for our needs in future without installing them one by one with restoring them easily with one click with the help of any extensions or applications made for Chrome. But unfortunately there are not any extensions or many tools available to backup and restore Chrome extensions.

There are tools like FEBE and Mozbackup for Firefox, which allows to backup and restore Firefox extensions. I have found apps like Google Chrome Backup and Favbackup.
