Google blocks crypto mining extensions from Chrome Web Store

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

The Chrome Web Store is a hotbed of sketchy browser extensions, with seemingly little intervention from Google (except for the occasional crack-down). The company already takes down extensions that secretly mine cryptocurrency, but now it is going a step further. Starting today, all extensions that mine cryptocurrency will be barred from the Chrome Web Store.

The new ban even includes extensions where crypto mining is the primary feature. Existing mining extensions will be removed in late June, but the rule does not affect other blockchain-related tools.

Toolbox, our web browser extension, adds Firefox on Android support and more with v2.0

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Back in December, we released a Chrome extension called 'Toolbox for Google Play Store.' It was designed to make the Play Store website much better, with direct links to APKMirror/AP/AppBrain for each app and the ability to sign up for beta programs with one click. A few months later, we released it for Opera, and later Firefox.

But all that time, there wasn't much in the way of new features or major improvements.

Toolbox for Google Play Store, our browser extension, is now available for Firefox

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Back in December of last year, we released a Chrome extension called Toolbox for Google Play Store. It enhances the web Play Store with testing program signup links, a button to view the selected app on APKMirror, and more. A few months later, the extension became available for Opera, and now it's on Firefox too.

The Firefox extension uses the same codebase as the Chrome and Opera versions, so you don't have to worry about missing functionality.

[Update: And It’s Back] Google has disabled the transparent UI for Hangouts on desktop

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Perhaps you woke up today a bit confused. As you sat down at your computer to check the morning email, you saw that something had changed. Nestled along the edge and ever-visible, where the familiar head-filled bubbles of your Hangouts friends one rested, a window now sat.

Google has disabled the transparent UI for Hangouts on Desktop

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Perhaps you woke up today a bit confused. As you sat down at your computer to check the morning email, you saw that something had changed. Nestled along the edge and ever-visible, where the familiar head-filled bubbles of your Hangouts friends one rested, a window now sat. A window without priority, without transparency, and without style. That's because Google took away that interface, the transparent chat-bubble UI for Hangouts on desktop is now missing. 

There's no telling if this change is a permanent change or just an oversight, but people are pissed. Reviews on the Hangouts extension at the Chrome Web Store have not been kind, either.
