Default Chrome and Firefox Pull Stylish Add-On After Report It Logged Browser History

This report is from Bleeping Computer:

Chrome and Firefox Pull Stylish Add-On After Report It Logged Browser History
Quote:
Google and Mozilla have removed the Stylish browser extension from their respective add-on stores after the publication of a report this week that accused the extension of logging users' browser histories and sending the data to remote servers.

"We decided to block [Stylish] because of violation of data practices outlined in the review policy," said Mozilla software engineer Andreas Wagner in a bug report opened earlier this week.

The Stylush Firefox add-on page has been removed, while Mozilla plans to disable the extension in users' browsers and show a message explaining its decision.

Google did not give out any explanation, but the Stylish Chrome Web Store page now returns a 404 error.
