    Post Weird extension install warnings

    Don't know if any have noticed, but lastest builds of chromium are now shipped with new warnings, when the users tries to install an extension..

    As fare as I can see, it switches between 3 randomly selected warnings.. But I'm not sure if there's any real purpuse, why it shows different message - if it's for fun or an idear they got (the common thing is that the warning sounds a bit odd like "Extensions have access your computer and private data" - hopefully sentences like this will be fixed before going into the wild ..)

    So seems as we have taken another step in getting the extension system ready for public use

    I noticed that if I install extensions in Chromium, the crx are downloaded somewhere, installed and then removed

    Sulasno that happens sometimes... and sometimes they don't.. I'v read something about it, think it was the servers that didn't identify the extension's mime-type.... or something like that ... it was in the changelog some time ago

    I think it is probably a temporarily file.
