*and NOT to see if angrybirds for chrome was updated.
….Imagine my dismay when just as i was about to ‘enable’ one of these new cool looking tools.. i noticed an almost unnoticeable yellow warningbox :
and as we see so many warnings boxes online these days ..i could of VERY easily breezed past this insidiously evil message full of HORRIFYiNG news: but i didn’t .
instead i was mindful/less enough to hit the “learn more” within the box and..
TIS whence i was bestowed with the worst most scary evil stripping of online-digninty info ,
all wrapped in text written like some sweet chocalate milky formula laced with ambien .
Each extension has a Low, Med and High Security ‘warning’ Here is what Google deems a low risk extension can access:
“This app/extension CAN access and VIEW EDIT ERASE DELETE the following:
WOW. if this is what Google considers LOW alert….imagine what they consider a **Medium …or, dare i say *** high.. level permission allowance ?
