    Sure Thing, looks more to me like he is Being a Cordial Gentleman. never would I post  personal messages from Erik in a Public Forum...

    That being said, Ive been here for a Bit, and I appreciate this site as much or more than the next Guy or Gal...Seeing People on their  3 or more acct, for abusing the site rules, then acting Honky Dory makes Me ROFL....

    Yes well, with that said. I don't see any content in those messages that cannot be publicly disclosed. There is nothing but two adults networking and striving to make this a better site for all of us. 

    Once again I would ask you to keep any personal vendetta's that you may have against me personal and not post them in a public forum such as this or I will have no other choice but to report you for defamation of character.

    kind regards,
    Carly Serrano

    To be honest, I was very excited until I saw the permissions the extension is asking. I don't want to give a chess game extension the permission to read all of my browser history. Why does it need "Read your browser history" permission? 

    Why? Do you have something to hide?

    Glad to see you have an interest in improving the chess site Carly. I liked some of the features from about 5 years back that vanished. The more interaction it has with others all the better.

    Carly Serrano (cheeky_chicky) made a great job on this site with her ideas and organizing the activity of thousands and thousands of people here, and giving that way an important contribution in terms of vivacity and originality. She doesn't deserve to be attacked like that. On the contrary, she should be thanked and encouraged.

    Ok , thanks for your support of her, I will go and erase my comments...have a good day...

    Hi there, this is a false alarm set by Chrome. It is basically a blanket term meaning that we can interact with the Chess.com tabs that you have open so you can use the features to customize your personal experience.

    Here is an explanation of how the message you are seeing is generated:

     

    https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/chromium-extensions/au_qakYSWkk

     

    I would disagree that it is a false alarm. In effect, your extension would get notified of every URL I visit. It could save this information and upload it to it's servers.

    Is there a better way to implement your extension that doesn't require this permission? 

    See this discussion for instance:

    I am going to pay to sponsor 10 people to play vs. my personal friend and National Master aww-rats soon. Date will be posted as soon as I get a clear date. I will be choosing one member from each group randomly. If you would like to play. Please message me privately.

    The catch is that you must use Version 3 in order to play.

    The extension only uses information of when you are on Chess.com, nothing external.

     

    In regards to the StackOverflow question/answer. Yes we use the "tabs" permission so we can communicate from the customization control panel directly to the site.

     

    If you look at the answer, you will see that is a bug and Chrome is using a blanket phrase:

     

    tabs permission shouldn't trigger "Your browsing history" warning, it's a bug in the gallery.

     

    If you would like to validate the permissions that we use, via our open source repository and cross reference it with Chrome's extension permissions specifications, please see these links:

    Hi, I have added the extension to my firefox browser, but I can't find out how to use it. Please help...

  • #38

    It's ok I found the little button, and I gotta say it's pretty lame, all you can do is change colour of things, I though it would of had a catalogue of cool themes...

    one annoying thing about the Chrome browser extension is that, even though i have set it for a mid-grey background, when reading something that has been pasted on to the page it comes up with a white background...
