  1. The Best Chrome Extensions to Prevent Creepy Web Tracking Ad trackers follow you everywhere online—but it doesn’t have to be that way. Illustration: Elena Lacey Almost every site you visit tracks you to try and link your browsing history to your interests and, in turn, show you targeted adverts. One minute you’re searching for a new desk, the next adverts for that furniture website you looked at are stalking you around the web
  2. How to Enable Extensions in Mozilla Firefox 67 Private Windows Mozilla Firefox 67 will introduce a new policy that will block extensions from running in private windows. The reason is as simple as it could be: since extensions sometimes need to access your data to work correctly and the private browsing mode is supposed to be, well, private, Mozilla believes that blocking add-ons by default can help guarantee no traces are left behind. And to do this, the company has decided to block all extensions by default in private windows, unless you specifically allow them
  3. One of the main advantages of the upcoming Microsoft Edge web browser that is based on Chromium is that it supports multiple extension stores. Microsoft Edge users may install extensions from Microsoft's own extensions store for Edge, or enable an option in the web browser to unlock extension installations from the Chrome Web Store as well. But how different are the extensions designed specifically for Microsoft Edge, and the extensions offered by Google on the Chrome Web Store? Are there any extensions available exclusively that Chrome users cannot install?
  4. However much you love your chosen web browser, you have probably enhanced its capabilities through the use of add-ons. Finding decent, reliable add-ons can be tricky, and this is why Mozilla is launching the Recommended Extensions program. This editor-curated program will surface the very best vetted extensions for Firefox, and it is due to roll out in stages later this summer. Mozilla says that any extensions it recommends through the program will be highlighted across its portfolio of websites and products, including addons.mozilla.org (AMO) and on
  5. Here’s how you can install extensions on Microsoft Edge from Chrome’s Web Store Around two weeks back we reported that Microsoft might allow users to install Chrome’s extensions on the new Microsoft Edge. Back then we weren’t able to test the theory since Edge wasn’t available publicly. However, Microsoft released the first build of Edge last nightand we finally got a chance to test the features. Among all the features is the ability to download and install exte
  6. Your favorite browser extensions might not work with the new Firefox [for Android] Don't expect too many add-ons for the mobile browser (Image credit: Mozilla) Mozilla has been busily beavering away on a new version of Firefox for Android, and its work is nearly done. The browser has been rewritten from scratch, and this explains why the project has been so many months in the making. But with the launch now not far away, there's some slightly disappointing news about browser extensions. At the moment there is just one ex
  7. Google blocks paid Chrome extension publishing and updating Google Chrome extension developers who try to publish new paid extensions for the Chrome web browser or update existing ones started to notice last week that Google would reject these outright with the rejection message "Spam and Placement in the Store". The Chrome Web Store accepts free and paid extensions unlike most other web browser stores that only accept free extensions (developers may still request a form of payment or subscription using other means). A study published in mid 2019 reve
  8. Microsoft is now accepting submissions for Edge Chromium extensions Developers can now submit their extensions for Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser, the company announced today. The new Edge is set for launch on January 15, so Microsoft wants to have a robust Edge Addons store, also saying that if you're a developer and you have a Chromium extension, it likely won't take any additional work to port it to Edge. If you have created a new Edge Legacy extension, the last day to submit it will be tomorrow, December 17. It makes sense though,
  9. Firefox users won't be able to sideload extensions starting March 2020, with Firefox 74. Mozilla has announced today plans to discontinue one of the three methods through which extensions can be installed in Firefox. Starting next year, Firefox users won't be able to install extensions by placing an XPI extension file inside a special folder inside a user's Firefox directory. The method, known as sideloading, was initially created to aid developers of desktop apps. In case they wanted to distribute a Firefox extension with their desktop app, the
  10. How to install extensions on Microsoft’s new Edge browser This Chromium browser works with your favorite Chrome extensions One of the best things about Google Chrome is its robust catalog of extensions. Microsoft’s new version of the Edge browser, which just launched for Windows 10, macOS, and mobile, is built on the same Chromium code base and can also tap into the Chrome web store. This means that it supports the same tremendously large selection of extensions, in addition to Microsoft’s own relatively limited selection of native extensions that are available through
  11. A team of Belgian researchers discovered privacy issues in how browsers, ad-blocking, and anti-tracking implementations handle third-party cookie requests. A team of Belgian researchers from KU Leuven analyzed third-party cookie policies of seven major web browsers, 31 ad-blockers and 14 anti-tracking extensions and discovered major and minor issues in all of them. Major issues include Microsoft Edge's unwillingness to honor its own "block only third-party cookies" setting, bypasses for Firefox's Tracking Protection feature, and use of the integrated PDF viewer in Chrome
  12. Adware, PUPs, and unwanted extensions are being promoted through sites that pretend to be adult video sites. When a visitor tries to play a video, a fake video player popup will be displayed that states you must download and install an updated media player to see the video. This "media player", though, just installs unwanted programs onto your computer or redirects you to unwanted chrome extensions. These fake sites consist of autogenerated pages based on popular celebrity or adult star keywords so that they can get as many pages as possible into search engines. When a user clicks
