    Yep.
    I found that last week. In chrome console there was an error for this error s3.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com/forton/live_http_headers.js.
    Googled for it and found same post you quoted.
    Chrome extension deleted. Pity, because it was handfull

    Wow. I used to use it, but deleted it a while ago. I tend to only leave Chrome extensions running while I need them, and can always reinstall later.

    As mentioned, it's a real shame.
