Default Google Removes the Option of Installing Chrome Extensions via Remote Sites

Articles from Bleeping Computer and The Register:

Google Removes the Option of Installing Chrome Extensions via Remote Sites
Quote:
Google announced plans today to gradually remove the option of installing Chrome extensions from a remote website, also known as an "inline installation."

According to Google, this means that by the end of the year, users will only be able to install new Chrome extension only from their respective Chrome Web Store listings.

All install paths will be rerouted through the Chrome Web Store

Google on Tuesday said it plans to discontinue inline installation of Chrome browser extensions, by which code on third-party websites can trigger the installation of extensions from the Chrome Web Store.

Sophos' Naked Security also reports on this change:

Google locks out extensions that dont come from its Chrome Web Store Naked Security
Quote:
As of Tuesday, 12 June, Google started on a phase-out of Chrome extensions that come from third-party websites. In the coming months, that means that extensions have got to either hit the Chrome Web Store or hit the highway.

Its about time, many will say third-party extensions cause too many headaches.
