Remove anything requires the user to give permission for the programme to access the users data before it can be installed. Is this safe?
What is the URL of the addon?
I use Firefox under Linux. I believe that the addon would come from the Firefox repository
I did not see any links - Firefox simply does it. However, I would expect it to install from the FF repository. How can I check? Do you take the view that if the addon does come from the FF repository then it is safe to agree to accessing users data
Nuke Anything Enhanced has the same requirement.
I wonder which is best
It only needs “activeTab”, “contextMenus” permissions.
activeTab: To access the visible active tab, in order to remove the object
contextMenus: to create a context menu
I have checked the addon and it is fine.
Have a look at this topic and my answer:
That is also similar. It also has a “storage” permission to save some user options.
Thank you, I will read your link.
Do you have a view regarding which of the two programmes is better, i.e., more comprehensive, powerful, easy to use, reputation, etc.
I have not tested their functionality… but the first one has slimmer code and I personally prefer slimmer code.
Thank you for answering my questions.
