Also the Design got a small update so now that Ratings Preview for YouTube™ looks even better and is easily understandable. We are also happy to announce that the newest release of ratings preview for youtube contains now an adblocker so your experience on youtube gets even better.
The message shown by Google Chrome for the requested permissions are very far from the real needs of the extension, but Ratings Preview for YouTube™ requires them for the following reasons:
* Access your tabs and browsing activity: this permission is required to show the configuration icon over the address bar when a tab enters in youtube.com. You can still hide the icon if you want.
* Access your data on all websites: this is required for showing the related videos' rating bars inside the player when the video ends in the case of embedded videos.
