      Claw - there is some concern regarding the extent of permissions that this software allows inside your browser https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/alelhddbbhepgpmgidjdcjakblofbmce/reviews

        Did take a look at that link jjj, but I'm not sure it represents a major concern to security of anything - given the amount of reviews which are there they seem to overwhelm the negative ones so I do have to ask myself if those negative comments can be allowed to outweigh the positive ones. If you know for a fact there are some issues regarding this app, please do tell us otherwise I probably would consider adding this to the site :)
        Cheers

            No,- mainly erring on the safe side, just didnt get past the EULA which said it can access all data on your computer, and then found a few comments detailing this concern.

              I've read the notice on the extension site which is as follows:

              Quote

              Chrome will alert you that the extension may access all your data.
              Here is the whole story.
              1. We use chrome's NPAPI (Which has the ability to access some local data) to work around a Chrome issue http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=45395which may crash the extensionwhen you save a large ( >2M) screenshot.The new version also delivers a much better "Saving screenshot" experience. If you still concern about privacy, you can install a lite version we designed specially for you http://bit.ly/iY6qPz.

              2. Theplugin has the ability to access your data, but itnever does it. It only access your screenshot data. Chrome shows the warning even if extensions do not access any private data. We are also normal internet users like you, we hate the bad behaviour.We also believe in "Don't be evil".

              Personally, I'd say that was a particularly responsible statement from that developer, given the fact that most people would probably just install the app anyway without a care in the world, so the fact they are openly announcing the fact the app could access data on a computer shows great transparency. Could it be a bluff? I doubt it if I'm honest, but would it make me want to list the app, I doubt that too actually - there are many more screenshot apps out there, potentially better one's at that, and most of which are simply a case of install and forget rather than having any potential security issues :)
