Google tackles ‘bad’ Chrome extensions

IN HET KORT (NA ALLE HACK SCHANDALEN HER EN DER ???) weert google ALLE sales buiten google om.

Quote BBC
“Google has imposed restrictions on where people can get extensions for its Chrome browser.

In a blogpost, the search giant said it was now going to allow only extensions hosted in its online store to be added to Chrome.

Before now it has been possible to add the extras via many different websites but Google said this is often how malicious extensions infect a browser.

The change means older extensions added outside the store will be disabled.

Extensions are a popular way for people to add extras to their browser that lets them, for instance, grab video clips, play games, use popular programs, send tweets or add utilities.”
