Chrome decides it wants to remove MB Anti Exploit

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up, today Chrome dropped down a settings window, here's the results:

I'm not forced to remove it, but thought I should mention it here.

...now me?       ...I'll delete Chrome before I'll delete MB anti Exploit.   

Respond if there's something I should know guys, and thanks                 1619261242_1MB.png.6c73952e33294d10c404125eeef7ded5.png

I see that even if I add my own  shield to protect chrome.exe, it is cancelled the next time that MBAE starts. Is Google Chrome so infallible or so well protected by its own defences that users can safely use it with the confidence that MBAE bestows on them? I do not trust Google's Chrome to be its own Devil's Advocate and in any case the Chrome 'anti-malware' apparently does not deliver real-time protection against exploits.  I will continue to use MBAE 1.12.1.109 (with modified HOSTS file).

Using third party anti-malware solutions increases the entropy (randomness) of using any web browser or other vulnerable software. If Google thinks that it is a good idea to reduce that entropy by disallowing other's anti-malware, and moreover to provide it's own inferior anti-malware, then that is why I do not trust Google. Hackers will surely realise what Google has done to Chrome and that will only encourage them to attack Chrome with even greater vigour.

Thanks to Google's policy regarding anti-exploit software, I have installed Opera and like it very much. A great deal of careful thought by Opera is very evident. Opera provides an extension which facilitates installation of extensions (such as Malwarebytes) from the Google store.
