So not only has AMO been gutted, they are so wanting to have anything there, that is what they accept, anything, including malware.
So not only has AMO spurned all the legitimate extension developers, they are so wanting to have anyone create anything, that is what they accept, everyone, including big.spy.on.you.com.
Take "Allen", an "education".
Here he is, a dozen or so extensions. His "websites", each using the same limited one page template, & that's it.
Given these times, given what is now "allowed", given what can be "gotten", is "Allen" Allen, or is he only a stooge for big.spy.on.you.com?
Maybe that is not the case, maybe he is simply a guy who in order to "education" has come up with these extensions for his own use, & thought he'd share them with the world. .
Isn't it wonderful that you cannot have any sort of trust in the majority of the extensions that one might install these days.
Isn't it wonderful that even your browser maker does dubious things for your benefit.
PS: No mention of NoScript. Conspicuously absent from this "reporter" (cough) when promoting their browser & "security".
