I’m wondering if it’s possible in near future to have an extension repository where extension developers can submit their extensions for review and pass or meet a specific criteria before the extensions go into the repository?
Like no “call home” to google code, malware, etc in their extensions is the main criteria to meet, and once met, they’re allowed into repository for users to be able to pick and choose whatever extensions they want to install.
Of course don’t allow extensions that are NOT in the repository to be used, but only ones in the repository after developers check their code etc. Then at least users could start using some of their favorite extensions a while. If we wait on certain extensions we love and need to be approved and implemented, we could be dead or dying of old age many many years from now. Lol!
I’d love to switch to Brave but lacking ability to have extensions I need to make life easier when browsing sucks. Guess it’s like the expression “Can’t have the cake and eat it too”. Epic browser is big on security and privacy and they don’t allow extensions either.
SRWare Iron browser is some-what big on privacy/security and allows extensions, but heard there’s some iffy code in their browser though too. Sucks, would be nice to have an awesome browser built for privacy/security, with the ability to have extensions to make a nice experience for users.
I love Brave, it’s the best privacy/security browser on market today. I’m willing to bet that if Brave allowed extensions developers to submit their (clean) extensions into the Brave Extension Repository, that Brave would have a strong following and more push behind it. I think extension devs would LOVE to be behind this project and all want their privacy/security like anyone else.
Would be awesome too if Brave made option within it’s browser to then allow users to give Brave Extension Developers donations, using the same features/currency tools in Brave currently. I know if I was extension developer and had extensions at Mozilla and Chrome Store, that I would stop updating them and only focus my time on Brave extensions. I guess it’s the loyalty, trust, and strong belief in the Brave browser itself.
