  1. Funny. I would have answered “predictably, no.” But, hey… that’s just me. [grin]

  2. The “ChromeBleed” extension you recommended — when was it… last week, I think; a couple weeks ago, maybe — works exceptionally well. I’m quite impressed with it.

    For anti-phishing, Chrome (and Chromium, too) have a setting for that (which works kinda’ okay); and for those of us who use OpenDNS, instead of the DNS that our Internet access providers provide, phishing is simply not a problem. None of it can get through. None.

    And so the ChromeBleed extension, with its single-minded focus on just HeartBleed, works perfectly for at least me… for whatever that’s worth. I was initially hesitant, as you know, because every extension one adds just bogs-down Chrome a little more; but ChromeBleed’s pretty light, it seems. Doesn’t slow-down a thing. It’s a nicely-written, simple, no muss, no fuss little extension…

    …that actually works! Thanks for recommending it!
