Is it possible that their is something built-into the extension that is actually potentially harmful?
It’s really annoying that 1. They have the ability to just remove something from your browser that you willingly and purposefully installed, and 2. (even worse, imo) That they provide no explanation or notification as to why, other than it “violates the chrome web store policy”. You’d think if there was a legitimate reason for removing it, they would WANT to provide a specific example as to why it was removed so that people might actually trust their decision, otherwise they’re just being dicks.
There are some instructions here to reinstall it. I don’t know how legit it is, so proceed at your own risk.
I’ve seen UMatrix mentioned a lot as an alternative as well.
Or just use Brave browser
I’ve bee using Chrome since the day it came out, so it’s REALLY hard for me to switch. I switched to Firefox about a month ago, and then hopped on Chrome again last night and immediately felt at home again. Going to try to stay away from it as much as possible, but it just seems like it works the best in general.
