WebExtensions native connector management extension
NativeExt -- Management extension
The NativeExt extension manages access to the NativeExt application, which gives other browser extensions full access to your computer.
NativeExt will explicitly ask you for every extension before granting it access to your system.
To use NativeExt, you must download and install the application, and then click the Apply button in the options.
While this is, from a security perspective, generally equivalent to installing a program on the computer, it is much easier to install and update for the user (once initially set up, allowing an extension requires only a single click, and updates are implicitly included with the extension itself) and easier to develop and maintain for the developers (write/bundle standard node.js modules and ship them with the extension; no platform specific installation or update code required).
For more information on what and why NativeExt is, see the project homepage.
