Risk impact

Audio Visualizer requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

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

Audio Visualizer 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.

Does exactly what it says. Which it had some custom options like colors, window size, window position. I would also like to be able to increase the threshold so quiet tabs can have bigger bands. Aside from those things, it does its job.

nice, shows all frequencies together and really easy to identify bass to treble. it would be even better if it showed the hertz on the side

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).
