Chrome browser to disallow unauthorized Chrome extensions

According to TechCrunch, starting January next year, Google will prohibit the installation of any third-party add-ons on the Chrome browser in Windows.




According to reports, developers who wishes to publish extensions to the Chrome store will have to substantiate a registration fee of USD$5.00. In addition, should the extensions or applications receive profits, Google will receive a 5% commission.

Recently, Google has beefed up the security of its browser, including a warning system and preventing the installation of extensions without prior notification to the web user. Google states, most Windows users complain that malicious add-ons overwrite the browsers' settings, thus upsetting the web browsing experience. Since most of such add-ons originate from third-party sources, the Google team decided to disallow such extensions altogether.
