Chrome, Firefox Remove Stylish Add-On for Logging Browser History

Google and Mozilla both removed the Stylish browser from their add-on stores after receiving a report that it was logging users’ browser histories and sending the data to remote servers.

The ban was said to have been prompted by a report by software developer Robert Heaton which included screenshots details how the extension was collecting user browsing history and sending it to SimilarWeb’s servers.

The extension had been hugely popular since 2016 as it allowed users to use custom “styles” for web pages, allowing users to fully customize any website to their liking.
