Re: Chrome's security alert re extensions

I'm obviously not smart enough to know, but wouldn't SSL/HTTPS prevent an extension from accessing content?

SSL/HTTPS prevents content from snooping while it's transmitted between web server and browser. Extensions are working within browser and therefore see all content already rendered within it.
