Chrome Extension turns out to be a watchdog on User’s actions: An expert says.

Chrome’s cookies policies are becoming a serious problem for the user. These are increasingly becoming inevitable followers to the users in their journey of Chrome browsing.Earlier this month, Google Chrome users were already worried about the ad-blocking features getting limited to the enterprise users. It has also been predicted that this feature will definitely be a threat to the privacy of the user. However, Google had ensured an updated version of the privacy policy to protect the user’s interest.An experiment was done by one of the experts at The Washington Post, which clearly flouts all the promises made by Google and proves them to be wrong.The experimentalist switched between Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox to compare the experiences with cookies blocking and privacy policy. To the obvious outcome, Chrome proved to be sharing user information with third-party content developers in order to customize the ads and contents presented while surfing the web. On the other hand, Mozilla Firefox blocked about 1100 cookies from unverified websites and saves the user’s data from going to the third-party hands.
Google Chrome comprises 65% of the Worldwide share of revenue in the commercial marketing sector. To the second stands Mozilla Firefox with only 10% of the share.The business-oriented changes made by Google under “WebDeclarativeRequest” has been criticized highly by ad-blocking Web APIs like Ublock Origin, Ghostery, and Raymond Hill. Allegedly, it is against the business policies of Google.

The user’s privacy and fundamental accessibility freedom have been hampered because content-developers have direct access to the exact date of the user’s search through the Chrome extensions. Thus customized ads will pop up to disturb the smooth browse.

In reply to these queries, Google spokesperson had earlier made a statement through 9to5Google, promising to be working on

“design of a privacy-preserving content filtering system (that) limits the amount of censored browse data shared with third parties “

But how far they stand in solidarity with their user’s interest is no longer a hidden story.

Twitter has also been flooded with a number of remarks blaming Google for “selling” user’s data for the sake of revenue from advertisers. People have opted for a switch in the browser they use as a preferred solution.

The tracking of user data not only harrases users but also make them feel insecure about their work experiences over the browser. Not only marketing businesses but also blogs are associated with an user-data exchange partnership with Chrome.

Chrome extensions have definitely put its own fame off through this strategy in content and ads marketing.
