Using the command line switch for CD 42 … --show-component-extension-options
And then going to chrome://extensions/
There are a few ordinarily hidden extensions that I would like to not only disable, but completely bin
Unfortunately they cannot be changed apart from dissallowing them in Incognito
Q1. Why do we need “Google Now” permanently installed ? ( I thought Comodo was supposed to be getting rid of all google ■■■■ we dont need, maybe this would be desireable for some to keep, but we should be able to disable it at least ) - Removed as of Dragon v43
Q2. Easy Flash Download - Does that apply to PPAPI or NPAPI ( if the latter does anyone need it going forward ? ) - And for those of us who will never use flash … Why cant we disable it
Q3. CryptoTokenExtension - I hope this is not something like PrivDog messing with our encrypted communications again - The details state that it can :
A. Read and change all data on websites you visit
B. Access any Gnubby from yubico.com on USB
C. Communicate with cooperating websites
D. Access your universal 2nd factor devices
I dont have a need for any of that, and I certainly do not like the sound of A, C and D … So again would like to be able to bin this hidden plugin completely.
Along with all the rest of the extensions giving this browser more potential footprint to be exploited ( see screenshot 2 ) … I would like to be able to get rid of extensions I do not require, which probably do nothing to improve Privacy and Security of the browser, but could actually make it worse by giving malware programmers more handles to get a grip on.
Edit : Updated the title. Struck through Q1, resolved.
