How Google obliterated my 4 year old Chrome extension featuring 24k+ users
Zeno Popovici

While I commiserate with your situation, I think you might be missing the whole point of Google: You are not Google’s customer; you are their product which they sell to their customers: the advertisers.

To cause Google to actually care about your extension, it would need to be critical enough to users of Chrome that its absence would adversely affect the number of people who use it, causing them to abandon Chrome for another browser, which would diminish the value of Google’s product (you) to its customers.

This is why Google is glacially slow to release new features for the services it provides for free and more often than not, completely deaf to the needs of its users.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
