For Chrome the version is still 1.18.1..........

I thought this MV3 starts off with Chrome?
This new Netcraft version is probably still in "approval phase" (to check carefully MV3 requirement...) but usually should be released soon even on Chrome web store.

Release notes for 2.1.1
  • The extension icon will now grey out for unsupported URLs (e.g. localhost, file://) rather than indicating danger.
