The popular ClearURL privacy extension removed from the Chrome Web Store

Google has removed a popular Chrome extension called ClearURLs from the Chrome Web Store, and its creator described the company’s rationale for it as “ridiculous.”

As he reported Register, The Chrome team emailed extension developer Kevin Röbert to inform him that his extension had been removed from his store for violating his terms. According to the Google Chrome team, ClearURLs are banned due to incorrect descriptions, using permissions and spam.
