* These extensions are particularly unsafe. Although the extensions themselves are legitimate, they are frequently found to have security bugs that malware is able to exploit. I strongly recommend uninstalling these. Furthermore, most of these plugins are no longer needed by most people as most websites have moved away from requiring them.
