What is really worrying is that Google is a reputable brand and average users might think it is all checked by the safest browser on earth. In the mean time Google distributed questionable software (extensions). I will ask Tavis to do something about it Kees
'Google Chrome Store is the biggest s..t in existence.
They don't seem to have any rules against spyware, malware, ads or anything. It's a disgrace.'
'Not just Ublock, type in adblock and there is a ton of extensions too.' ...
'Chrome's webstore is a cesspool, I had more than one Chrome extension that I was using mysteriously pulled from the store and permanently disabled on my computer and when you click on the former link to the store it just says the addon was either pulled by the author or it violated Google's policy which doesn't help. I sent one one the extensions collectively to the AV companies for analysis and I find out it that the reason that addon was pulled was b/c it was phoning home and injecting ads.
It doesn't help that it seems curating addons for browsers is a very low priority for AV companies, that should be the browser makers job anyways.'
