Is there a history log?

I discovered an unwelcome extension and uninstalled it immediately.
Then I went through my list of extensions and saw I'd installed Extension history quite a while ago, so I opened it up and the "last" columns for that extension just said "2 minutes ago".

Is there a way to determine when it was installed? In retrospect, I should have checked Extension history before uninstalling, but I really wanted that other extension off my system.

Track extension owner

Could you also log the extension owner, and add an option to automatically disable extensions which are updated when the owner has changed?

That way the user could review the extension and possibly avoid malware injection when extensions are sold to malicious owners.

Addition / suggestion

could you add options to control how many times we want it to blink to grab attention?

Can you add an installed-on-this-device date?

I'd like to be able to sort by install date to figure out which ones I'd added most recently in case I want to add on of them to other instances of Chrome and/or tell a friend about new ones I've discovered.

I realize you might not be able to display the install date before Extension Log is installed, but maybe you could get close to a meaningful date by extracting the extension's folder creation date (e.g., %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\eiljhbjamiikjjldhnepillceohglbjh)?

The two "last" columns

What do these show? Maybe you could add a tooltip so hovering over them will offer an explanation?

Most of the time the two columns match.

Save to server

Allowing the ability to save current log to google server to update on a new instance would be awesome.
