Brings your news search and digesting experience to your address bar.
This extension is a Chrome browser extension built to help you utilize your fragmented internet browsing time by bringing your news search and reading directly to your address bar. When it’s on manual mode, you need to type “@news” in your address bar, followed by the topic you want to look for, and click on the autocomplete suggestion to the result page. Once it’s set on automatic mode, you can type directly in your address bar the headlines/topics you look for and click on the autocomplete suggestions to see the results.
You can also select your favorite news categories from the extension’s dashboard (up to 3 categories), so when you type in your address bar, we’ll bring you the latest headlines to your autocomplete suggestion. Customize your extension experience by selecting your default search engine, news provider, country, language, and categories inside the extension’s Settings section.
Permissions used and reasons:
1. Access to “cookies” (optional). We require this permission to provide your customized options for Settings. It’s optional because if you don’t change any default settings, we will not need it.
2. Change your default search engine to our private domain search.mybrowsingsafety.pro, powered by Yahoo. We require this permission to use our private domain as a placeholder and to provide you the functionality in the autocomplete suggestions of your address bar. Inside this extension, we support Yahoo, Google, and Bing. You can switch to a different provider at any time inside the Settings section.

I have no clue what it is doing. So I will give it a tentative 3 stars. It will take me awhile to figure out its benefits or detriment. But safety sounds good to me. I just hope that it is really owned and recommended by Google.
Totally awesome my laptop hasn't crash which is a good thing
