Permissions

The extension asks for the following permissions:

Tabs

It requires access to your open tabs, so that you can navigate to any of them and make them searchable.

ContextMenus

You can right-click on any link to add a bookmark.

History

It analyzes your history, ranks it and makes it searchable. All the data manipulation stays on your machine. The extension never sends any of your data to a remote server.

Intercept Requests

To navigate to aliases (see section below). It only intercepts navigation to URLs starting with go/.

Aliases

Aliases are shortcuts to links you commonly use, read more about them here. With the extension installed, you may navigate to an alias, let's say you got an alias maps pointing to https://maps.google.com. Then all you need to do is type go/maps in the address bar and hit enter.
