Disable auto-update of Chrome extensions
Chrome automatically updates your extensions. There have been occasions where an extension developer has lost/sold control of his extension to a malware author. Or maybe you just want to control when updates hit your system.
The Extension Update Disabler extension empowers your to enable/disable automatic updates of
your Chrome extensions.
It's not fancy. It just has a button to disable auto-update of all your extensions, and a button to enable. It does this by editing your extensions to make them unable to find the update site.
It only works when you install a 'helper' application from http://kleinfelter.com/update-disabler/ because extensions don't have access to your file system.
It currently works for Chrome (not Chromium) on Windows and on Mac. If you need it for Chromium or Linux, let me know and I'll work on adding those platforms.
