Why Google is making tough to install external extensions?
Google has the answer. "Many services bundle useful companion extensions, which causes Chrome to ask whether you want to install them (or not). However, bad actors have abused this mechanism, bypassing the prompt to silently install malicious extensions that override browser settings and alter the user experience in undesired ways, such as replacing the New Tab Page without approval. In fact, this is a leading cause of complaints from our Windows users. "
If your extensions hosted elsewhere Chrome team suggesting you to migrate them to web store as soon as possible. Extension developers may also need to look at inline install feature.
