Extremophiles

A naive question but I can't find the answer--What is the difference
between Archaea and Extremophiles, or is there any?  Is one a subset of
the other, and which is which?  

A second question--Must all Arachaea live in exotic environments, or can
some live "normally" with some aberrations, for example, can Archaea
metabolize in an oxygen atmosphere.  

Thank you for any help you can give me.  Bill Beller
