Google Chrome Working to Bring a Toggle to Disable All Unwanted Extensions on a Website

1 Mins read

Google is working on making its Chrome browser more secure by bringing new safety features. According to reports last month, Google Chrome is working on a new feature that protects users from insecure HTTP downloads. Currently, the company is working on a redesigned menu with a toggle to block all unwanted extensions at the same time. The new toggle will reportedly disable extensions and block potentially malicious extensions. Microsoft Edge has something similar that allows users “pause extensions on this site” feature.

Reddit user Leopeva64 shared that Google Chrome seems to be working on a new toggle that users can use to quickly block all extensions on the current site within the extensions menu. Though users can currently disable malicious extensions manually, it’s quite a tedious task. But with this new toggle, the process will be eased. It will help users block all suspicious extensions at once with just one tap.

This feature is currently under development and visible in Chrome Canary, but it doesn’t work yet. It just turns on and off and doesn’t show the installed extensions as well. This feature is similar to Microsoft Edge’s “pause extensions on this site” feature that was launched in April 2022. However, in Edge, the site automatically reloads after extensions are paused. Google is yet to officially announce the feature.

As most secure websites now use HTTPS encryption, Google Chrome was reported to be working on a feature that would alert users of insecure HTTP downloads last month. Google Chrome is planning to block all HTTP downloads to offer a safe and secure browsing experience. The feature is currently under development and the tech giant is yet give an official word on the same. As soon as the feature is rolled out, users will be prompted to use a secure HTTPS connection, and downloads from an insecure website will be blocked.

As of now, the browser has a mixed element and a toggle for “Always use secure connections” in its security settings. A “Not Secure” warning is also displayed for older sites that are only HTTP-encrypted.
