Yeah, that's good idea to remove it, someone else's opinion about news doesn't matter at all
I think they pay the store to spotlight their extensions and as long as they're not violating any terms they can do so
All I can do on my side is to give it a 1 star and hope everyone is educated and aware enough not to get brainwashed by such extensions.
Yup, I barely use it and it really messes the serach results since all I see is these weird bages that have a color. Really annoying.
Yeah it is annoying, and also humiliating when a company tries to inflict their own biased agenda on people.
