Under New Management Detects when your extensions have changed owners

Intermittenty checks your installed extensions to see if the developer information listed on the Chrome Web Store or Firefox Addons store has changed. If anything is different, the extension icon will display a red badge, alerting you to the change.

Why is this needed?

Extension developers are constantly getting offers to buy their extensions. In nearly every case, the people buying these extensions want to rip off the existing users.

The users of these extensions have no idea an installed extension has changed hands, and may now be compromised.

Under New Management gives users notice of the change of ownership, giving them a chance to make an informed decision about the software they’re using.
