UPDATE: SMOOTH GESTURES SPYWARE CHROME EXTENSION
A while ago I posted about how the Smooth Gestures Chrome extension was stealing browsing information, but have noticed this news was broken a few days before me. The actual incident happened on August 24th as this good Reddit thread shows. For those looking for a replacement gesture extension, try Mouse Stroke, which incidentally sounds like a medical lab experiment or an awesome rock band name. It's just as good as (if not better than) Smooth Gestures. I've been impressed with it so far. read the Reddit thread where the extension author responds.
