I guess most people know about the movie web app site, which pulls videos from various sources.

Recently they added a request to download an extension to your browser, for optimal perfomance and better quality.

It is featured on the firefox android extensions site from Mozilla, it has a github page. What I read online is that it seems the extension wants access to everything you do in your browser, which seems kind of sketchy.

What do people here think about it? Anyone installed it and can say more?

Edit: thanks for all the comments, looks like less people knew about this than I thought.

    Like I say, I don’t know what site or service they’re referring to, but this was the claim about what the extension was for.

    I’m sure there could be an extension that checked IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes, but that doesn’t seem to be what this is. Frankly, as a rule of thumb I wouldn’t download any extension from a pirate streaming website.
