Adds links to strings that look like Ethereum addresses to your favorite blockchain explorer + antiphishing measures.

What is EtherAddressLookup?
EtherAddressLookup is a Chrome extension designed to enhance the Ethereum user experience by linkifying Ethereum addresses, facilitating easy blockchain searches, and providing anti-phishing measures. Users can add labels to addresses to create an in-built address book, block malicious domains, check browsing history for harmful domains, bookmark trusted sites, and setup a custom RPC node. The extension also provides trust-badges for Twitter handles to root out phishing attempts on the platform.

Summary

🔗 Linkify Ethereum Addresses - Makes Ethereum addresses (& ENS addresses) into links to your favoruite block explorer. If you hover over these links, it will show you how much ETH the address has and how many transactions it has.

🔍 Block Explorer - search the blockchain with an 0x address or transaction hash and get human readable results.

🏷️ Add Labels to Addresses - No need to remember the long hex string if you can add human readable labels to addresses. Create your own address book that is integrated with the block explorer functionality.

🚫 Block you from malicious domains - EAL keeps a daily-updated blacklist of known phishing domains to help you keep your funds/secrets secure. The blacklist is saved locally to the extension every 10 minutes to keep your privacy intact. The only time you hit a 3rd party service is when the extension caches the blacklists - services are Github.

✔️ History Checker - Along with the domain blocker, there is also a history checker to analyze your browser history to alert you if you've been on a now-known bad domain.

📑 Bookmark your favourite domains - having easy reliable links to domains you trust. These bookmarks are displayed in the top of the extension window and are 100% controlled by you.

✏️ Custom RPC node - don't rely on us for the data if you run your own node. Go into the extension settings and set your own RPC node to use. EAL comes with a node provided by Quiknode on mainnet, but feel free to change it to one you control on any Ethereum network.

🐦 Twitter Trust Badges - to combat the phishing/scamming on Twitter, EAL will inject a trust-badge next to the Twitter handle to show if it is to be trusted. Data is sourced from hiveone.

Had it installed for years but never really used. Seems to be safe, but consumed extremely a lot of CPU, hence uninstalling now.
