Can someone at Google explain why a Chrome extension is allowed to track "read" status and even location of email messages from gmail?

I'd like to receive a response from someone at Google just to help me decide if this was a mistake or indeed sanctioned by Google. It will help me decide whether I should continue to use Gmail or not.

Thank you.
Bye bye, everyone. It's time to quit the Internet. There's a Google Chrome extension called Streak that, when installed, lets you see when someone has read an email you sent. You know what this means? It means other people can use Streak and see t...

So far it's a good read, but I'm only into the first few chapters.

Is WP- Markdown By Stephen Harris pretty good as markdown plugin? I generally write markdown posts from BBEdit anyways but would like the option within WordPress too.

I have two Google+ questions for anyone :

1. Does the ipad app have a normal text chat feature or is it strictly a Hangout experience for video-chat

2. Anyone know what to do for a Win7 machine that appears to download the Hangout plugin, executes but continually asks the user to download the plugin whenever attempting to reply to a hangout request or initiating a hangout?

Thank you.

Glad I stumbled on this. I was wondering about this.
 
Hangouts, phone calls and Google Voice

Thanks for all of your feedback on last week's Hangouts launch. I wanted to quickly talk about 1) making/receiving phone calls in Gmail, and 2) Google Voice support more generally.

1) Today's version of Hangouts doesn't yet support outbound calls on the web and in the Chrome extension, but we do support inbound calls to your Google Voice number. We're working hard on supporting both, and outbound/inbound calls will soon be available. In the meantime, you can continue using Google Talk in Gmail.

2) Hangouts is designed to be the future of Google Voice, and making/receiving phone calls is just the beginning. Future versions of Hangouts will integrate Google Voice more seamlessly.

Is Google Places another wonky spot? Seems like certain business photos can't be deleted at times and there's no indication on how to delete them other than reporting them, then waiting to see what happens. The UI is certainly broken. Venting and wondering if anyone has found a solution.

*The Conundrum* :

It takes some family time to discover that G+ apparently does not allow text chat from within the iPad app, although the Mac Air user can happily text chat away to the iPad user without receiving any acknowledgement that the text is unseen (oh we can see and talk but forget the funny text).

Meanwhile, a PC user keeps receiving a plugin download request, downloads and executes it, but is forever stuck receiving the plugin download message whenever a Hangout request is received from the iPad or Mac Air users. The PC user can text chat though to the Mac Air user at least (forget the seeing and talking part).

So, depending on the platform and G+ app, what might have appeared as snubs, really are just G+ user experience consistency holes.

Of course, everyone is in the same room and could just as easily look up and respond to each other, but I thought G+ was supposed to make communication and engagement easier.
