The change won't affect non-mining extensions that deal with blockchain or miningrelated topics such as cryptocurrency exchange rates or news. Around 90% of those extensions failed to comply with Google's terms and were removed before reaching the Chrome Store.
The issue with such extensions is that their activity uses up a lot of the computer's processing power, leaving less for the tasks that the user might be trying to actively perform on their PC.
According to the post, Google states that previously, their Chrome Web Store policy had allowed for digital currency miningextensions to be present on the Chrome Web Store, as long as they clearly intended their goal, which is, of mining cryptocurrencies, on their description page clearly and legibly and should only be used for mining currencies and nothing else.
Until this week, the Chrome team allowed mining code if the end user was properly informed about the software's objective.
One of 2017's least helpful trends, for pretty much any definition of helpful, was the rise of so-called "cryptojacking" extensions and scripts. Moreover, all the existing extensions that exist only to mine digital currencies, even with the consent of users, will also get the boot by July.
Do you believe that Google's new policy will prevent miners from embedding hidden cryptomining extensions in your browser? However, while cryptocurrency advocate groups are already lining up to sue Google over the advertising ban, no such actions have been announced regarding the extension ban.
