X-VPN Android APP vs Chrome Extension

While the X-VPN Google Extension isn't as comprehensive as the VPN app, it only slightly affects the speed of the internet activity in Chrome and doesn't cause delays in other apps, making it ideal for users who only need to secure the privacy of their browsers.
