I think, make that I hope this is specific to Chrome only... in which case I don't really care since the backend of browsers built on Chromium will have whatever the makers of the browser decide on. In this case, it seems like Google (that makes Chrome) will remove things but that doesn't mean all others that also use Chromium will do the same.

Maybe I am misreading this all wrong or maybe you were thinking of this to mean Chromium when you read about Chrome? They are different but often confused so I feel like maybe that is the case here?

This does not effect chrome extensions. So... I don't see it having an impact on Slimjet. Or did I miss something?

Seems right, looks like Chrome Apps, not Chrome Extensions which differ.

"Another major difference between Chrome extensions and web apps is the fact that while extensions are used to enhance the functionality of the Chrome Browser, web apps run within the browser having a different user interface. Unlike web applications, extensions have little or sometimes no UI component"
