This post about browser-extensions security.
It is so interesting report by a developer from hh.ru. This video will tell you how vulnerable users are now when installing the usual at first glance extensions for the browser.
Based on the experience of developing extensions and a viewed report, I can say that the security problem when using extensions really exists. I still disagree with some features of downloading extensions on the Google Store, since checking extensions present. I ran into problems when the extension was not published for various reasons and Google checks and sends an abstract report of problems.
But in general, this report was very interesting to me, I advise you to get acquainted with it. The report will be useful not only to frontend developers, but also to everyone who is in IT.
