Why Do Chrome Plugins Need Access To ‘All My Data’ and ‘Browsing Activity’?

If you’ve installed Chrome plugins, you’ve probably seen a warning that they can access your data on all websites, your tabs and browsing activity, or even all the data on your computer.

The internet security gurus at Comodo have their own build of Firefox floating around, and it’s called IceDragon. IceDragon is a version of the Firefox browser with enhanced tweaks for performance and Comodo security. It’s worth a look.

Clean Up Your Search Results With Personal Blocklist For Chrome

One of the hardest things about conducting online research is sifting through so much noise to get to the good stuff. I think a large part of Google and Bing’s never-ending effort to improve search results is to remove a lot of that noise and to offer searchers quality sites with quality content about the topic they are searching for. If you think about it, that’s a tall order.
