# This is a big disappointment for me as a Chrome user. How can I trust an unnkown developer and his extensions? I'm surprised. Google has lots of money, it can buy big brands like Motorola but can't hire a team to monitor extensions. Google should take our safety seriously. Don't be evil Goog# I guess the Mozilla has advantage here. It has a vast community of volunteers who offer their service to check all firefox extensions.# Imagine the worst: I trust an extension developer and install his extension from Chrome web store. Developer's account gets hacked and the hacker adds malicious code to the extension's file and releases it as a new update. Google Chrome automatically updates extensions and thus all users got affected. This is so panic.# I have uninstalled all extensions except those created by Google itself. # Thanks TechRaga for your informative post.
