Delete an extension on Google Chrome?

Knowing the weather forecast, listening to the radio, buying a new theme, varying the screen brightness according to the hour ... You will find a host of extensions to download from the Chrome Web Store. While a few will be useful to you, it's a safe bet that you will get bored of some, not to mention the ones that install automatically on your browser. These are also particularly dangerous: they can modify the design of certain sites, cause a swarm of pop-ups to appear, or even save some of your sensitive data!

In short, they often hide adware. If some antivirus can get rid of it, nothing better than a little cleaning from time to time to ensure peace of mind and security!
