Summary
The King of Gear’s extension provides concise gear summaries and other useful annotations (lyrics, guitar tunings) for Radiohead videos on youtube. Rather than searching through tKoG or Google to find information on a video that you’re watching, simply click on the add-on to view a condensed list of relevant gear (often with timestamps included). If you want to read more about a track, just click through to the article(s) provided. This extension not only makes it easier to find information about the videos you’re watching, but also makes it easier for you to navigate our site.

If you have feedback about the extension, we’d be very happy to hear from you on our website (thekingofgear.com) or at thekingofgear@gmail.com. This extension was built with the help of a new startup, and if you’d like to create a similar extension or have any questions, you can contact them at developers@manaweb.com

So far, we’ve added information to most of the videos on Radiohead’s official channel, particularly for the Thumbs Down and Scotch Mist webcast videos. We have more features coming soon, including gear summaries and other facts for non-official videos, and information about where you can buy the gear used in the videos.
Safety
Risk impact

The King of Gear requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install The King of Gear if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

The King of Gear may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Manifest

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
