ABOUT PERMISSIONS This extension requests the following permissions:

  • Read and change all your data on the websites that you visit. This is necessary to detect tabs that contain unsaved form input or audio/video. This enables the extension to prevent these tabs from suspending automatically.
  • Read and change your browsing history. This is necessary to keep the extension from creating redundant items in the users history when suspending tabs.

ломает гугл кип. при нажатии "параметры фона" у заметки параметры не отображаются. а ещё установлено без моего участия само

После установки данного приложения появилось прям куча всякой всплывающей рекламы в браузере. Плюс при нажатии на любой вкладке, сразу открывается дополнительное окно с какой-либо спамовой рекламой.... в общем и целом - вредоносное приложение.
