Google disables two Chrome extensions displaying pop-up ads


Google has reportedly taken down two extensions from its Chrome Web Store that apparently force fed users with pop-up ads. A month earlier, the search giant had announced disabling some of its toolbars and other “multipurpose extensions” from the Chrome Web Store in a bid to protect users from pop-up ads.

According to CNET, users complained to the company’s message boards after two extensions, “Add to Feedly” and “Tweet This Page,” had their codes updated, which led to more pop-up ads being displayed. However, Google is said to have removed the extensions because they violated its terms of service.

The report said that the developers of both these extensions were paid to alter their codes, but Amit Agrawal, developer of the Feedly extension, said that he sold his extension but now regrets it. It is not against Google’s rules to receive money to include ad code, but developers must comply with the company’s extension policies of having one functionality, the report added.

    I have decided that the home I sold you is not enough protected, so I will change the windows for bars, change the door lock, put a new fence in the backyard, change your home color because it is for your ‘safety”, get rid of the trees and plants from your garden because it is safety and the new policy is that you have to be at home before midnight, if not, you will have to sleep in a motel.

    Moreover, don’t complain because I am smarter than you and I am doing this for your safety. Instead, thanks me and call me your fair godmother and protector you moron. additionally, I have more money and I can do whatever I want.
