CNET: Chrome extensions soon only available from Google’s website

CNET: Chrome extensions soon only available from Google’s website. “If you want to install Chrome extensions, Google’s Chrome Web Store soon will be the only place to get them. Extensions — the software that lets you do things like block ads, manage your tabs better, explore art on your new-tab page or cover your screen with doge dogs — can be useful and fun. Unfortunately, they can also be a conduit for malware that spies on you or cryptocurrency miners that let others profit off your computer’s horsepower.” I’m not sure how this is supposed to be safer.
