Allows you to view files from download links such images, audio, video, etc (that are supported by browser) with new browser tab, by forcing not to download files to disk. 

For example, if you are working online, and someone sends you some screenshots, and when you click on download links, the server may send download command to the browser which makes it save that file to your downloads folder and then you have to open it. After viewing these files are of no use and act as junk. 

By removing some headers sent by the server to browser, it makes it show the file in the 
browser itself. However one can save it to disk manually.
Risk impact

Force View Download - Less downloaded files is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

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

Force View Download - Less downloaded files 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.
