Google Testing To Block Extensions For Individual Websites

Google is working on a new feature that will allow Chrome extensions to be disabled or enabled for each site individually in one fell swoop. This brings many advantages but is perhaps too cumbersome for users.

Google is currently testing this change in an A/B test with the first users. This was discovered by a user who shared his findings on Reddit.

The user noticed that the menu for the extensions has been revised and now has a new item – there you can choose whether you want to deactivate all or individual extensions for the website you are currently visiting.

It’s not possible to manage permission of extensions for each individual site from the settings page, at least not at the moment. At the moment you can still make adjustments via the settings of the individual extensions. However, the innovation offers an easier way to apply a custom extension list that only applies to a specific website.

Some extensions can cause problems with websites, and some websites don’t allow extensions such as ad blockers. With the changed user setting, you can make changes for activity/deactivation yourself. Currently, Google Chrome only allows you to disable extensions for all websites via browser settings, not to control extensions based on a specific website.

A/B testing in progress

It seems that the first users have received the function for testing. So Google is still experimenting with the change. The function is currently only accessible to selected users via the extension menu. The development team has not released any details yet.
