"This extension needs access to..."

Postby PrivacyAdvocate » Sat Jul 24, 2010 9:20 pm

Greetings,

First, thank you for providing a more private browser than Chrome! I like how clean and light Chrome is, but I don't like how 'G' works so hard to collect my information. :cry:

I've just downloaded and installed Iron and now I'm looking for compatible extensions. I found a few I'd like to try (from this site: chrome.google.com/extensions/), but I get the following message when attempting to download them:

This extension needs access to

Your data on all websites

Your browsing history


That doesn't sound good. What does it mean? Is there some data collecting going on through the extensions? If so, is there a way to prevent this?

Thanks for your help!
