I need answers for the below:
- For example, there are 5 developers who have developed extensions on “weather”. Now, among these 5 extensions, which extension will get a higher priority, which extension will get highlighted, which extension you will show or discard? There should be some priority mechanism/logic/algorithm using which you prioritize the extensions on the web page ?
I am asking for that logic, which generated priority or order or selection mechanism? And I am looking for the answer whether this logic ( of prioritizing the extensions ) is a part of browser logic Or you just gather this information from the content provider’s website and render it to the end user.
There could be extensions from the same developer ( as shown on related tab of chrome browser’s extensions page ) or there could be different extensions from different developers. how do u prioritize them ?
I can notice star ratings ( ***** ) and the no of users who have given those ratings to that particular extension and the number of users who have installed the extension.
And this scale based ratings is completely dependent on users.
Some logic/algorithm should be there which generates the priority/ ordering / featured extensions?
- Moreover, the browser recommends a particular extension like - use this extension, it is safe, it has more no of installs etc ( these are ways on which a browser recommends an extension to the end user ) . The other extension is not safe, it is malicious? All these priorities are generated based on some logic/mechanism.
Whether the browser refers to any adware,spyware or malware for generating this recommendations for the extensions? What chrome browser will do, if any extension is harmful ? How it detects that this particular extension it harmful?
