Blacklists some webpages i'm self-hosting in the cloud. Not sure why, pretty sure my pages are safe :) Would be nice to whitelist these manually on a local whitelist or something.

This BS installed itself without notifying me. I didn’t find out until my chrome was very slow, so I investigate, but it still can’t be deleted.

I didn't even know that I had this extension installed til I had a problem with it. I can't open ANY SINGLE web...All of the sudden, all of them are reported as unsafe. That can not be possible... I can't neither swicth it off or delete it. Result: I can't navigate at all using google chrome. If I use a different browser then I can. Obviously is not a problem of the website visited, but the extension.

I compared safe browsing apps. MS Defender compares your browsing to tables of known threat actors in realtime. Anonymously. Defender, on a Windows computer has very low overhead and if you are setup to automatically download and install via Windows Update it is always current. Google permanently logs all of your browsing, keyed to your Google email ID, if you add their Safe Browsing extension. Sounds like spyware to me.

I'm removing your extension effective immediately. Leave it to Microsoft to remove something from the most popular browser to make it exclusive to their browser to try to increase market share and make you a product.. I've seen this story regarding Microsoft played out for decades and they still haven't changed. I will never use Edge and this just hardened my resolve. If I were allowed negative 5 stars, you earned it. Oh well, thanks for gift wrapping me and sending me to Brave.

This extension told me to install Microsoft Edge.
