The argument against giving people a setting or option to override this seems to be "but malicious software could toggle it!" as if the user having malicious software on their machine with that access isn't already game over. All this really does in that case is shift the problem far enough away that the user won't associate it with Chrome and Google by extension. That's somewhat amusing given that they likely got the malicious software on their machine in the first place by downloading a malware-laced clone of some program due to it being ranked higher in search results than the actual thing, but I digress.

So instead it seems more like the main focus is to reduce Google's support effort and force people into the Chrome Web Store with all the benefits that that walled garden entails. That's fine if we're going to be honest about it, but I'm really not sure this makes the users themselves significantly safer. It has made the native userscript support completely useless though (which is my primary reason for griping), but hey - at least we can tell people to download Tampermonkey from the Web Store right?

#BAFact: On this date in 2004, the Earth was hit by the biggest blast of cosmic radiation in recorded history.

Eight years ago today - Dec. 27, 2004 - the Earth was slammed by the biggest explosion of energy coming from deep space in recorded history. It is almost impossible to exaggerate the size and scale of this event: It literally had a physical effect here on Earth, even though the origin was a mind-crushing 50,000 light years away!

They probably paid extra to be waved at by the drum majors.
