I don't know where that came from. Where can I contact them?
I found no hints here: http://trafficlight.bitdefender.com/info?url=donovanglover.com

I'll do so once I get the chance. ATM I'm using Firefox and the link is Chrome-specific.

Probably not. Even if there were, it wouldn't function like this extension.

Chrome uses different processes for different tabs; Firefox doesn't.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Chrome Browser Privacy Settings - A Primer
There are many of them and if you value your privacy, then don't depend on the
default settings. This pretty much goes for all browsers, social network sites, forums, etc.

Use the following link and then select "get help"
chrome-extension://cfnpidifppmenkapgihekkeednfoenal/settingsPage/settings.html#

Doesn't work. Could you possibly do it?

You would have to install TrafficLight from Bitdefender. then access the help page from within the settings.
