    Thanks for info. I am glad I am not alone. I thought it could somehow relate to the localized Store but now it is clear it has nothing to do with this and it is rather a common issue. Wish Google has sorted out this soon.

    Does anyone know if there is a chrome extension that allows for selective cookie control? I want to keep the two-factor cookies while clearing everything else on exit.

    It looks like a have a Chrome and Dragon Extension for Google Wallet that can't be seen under Extensions....I can't find it in Chrome itself, but I found it listed in CCleaner (Tools>Startup>Google Chrome). You can disable it from there it looks like.

    Your list of companies to avoid is sorely lacking, especially if you're using a Windows machine.

    Why does Adblock Plus for Chrome block less ads than Adblock Plus for Firefox? :doubt: Same filter subscriptions, same notebook ...

    Chrome API for extensions is limited compared with Firefox.

    Pay-for browser extensions delivered through the browser manufacturer's official store seems consistent with the business model trends in recent years. I expect we'll even, eventually, see this happening in the Mozilla ecosystem as well. It may become much more difficult tough to avoid explicitly linking your browser and extensions to your real identity :(

    Perhaps it would be wise for more people to learn to write extensions and for everyone to fight for robust sideloading capabilities.
