Brief Introduction Plugin Controller is a powerful browser extension manager designed to help users efficiently manage their browser extensions. With a user-friendly interface, this extension offers one-click disable/enable for all extensions, grouping extensions for batch operations, quickly enabling or disabling individual extensions, and provides keyboard shortcuts to further speed up operations.
Why did I develop this extension? In our daily use of browsers, we often find ourselves installing various extensions to accomplish specific tasks or functions. However, as the number of extensions increases, managing and controlling them becomes more and more cumbersome. Even when we are not currently using these extensions, they still run in the background, continuously consuming resources, and may conflict, causing some inexplicable problems. This is the motivation for developing this extension.
Here are some problems I often face:
Conflict Issues: As the number of installed extensions increases, they may conflict with each other, and some plugins may also conflict with certain websites. These conflicts can lead to page loading errors or unexpected behavior.
Performance Issues: Many extensions are set to be active on all websites by default. This means that when we visit a website, in addition to the site's own requests, there are a large number of requests from these extensions. This not only slows down page loading but may also consume a lot of system resources, making the browser and even the entire system sluggish.
Management Inconvenience: Chrome's default extension list does not offer quick enable or disable functions. Sometimes when facing conflict issues that need quick troubleshooting, we have to go to the "Manage Extensions" detailed settings page each time and disable/enable plugins one by one for step-by-step troubleshooting, which is very cumbersome and extremely inefficient.
Plugin Controller is relatively safe to use as it requires very minimum permissions.
Plugin Controller may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.
