Some browsers need you to grant extensions and apps special permissions when installed to
help you keep control. The permissions mentioned on this page are all required by Template in
order to provide complete functionality.
Some of these permissions can appear to be quite scary so we have attempted to explain why
each one is required. If, for whatever reason, you doubt these explanations or are simply
curious, please feel free to take a look at the source code
yourself. It is open source after all.
These permissions should be displayed in a warning message when you first install
Template and you will be asked to accept them:
"Data you copy and paste" » Although this is a no-brainer
for most of you, some long-term users may wonder why this wasn't always displayed. Well,
that's because this permission didn't even exist until Chrome 13,
where it was introduced.
"Your browsing history" » This is required in order to
execute the keyboard shortcut and DOM parser
script on all previously opened pages which is required when
installing/updating/re-enabling the extension to ensure consistency.
"Your physical location" » This is required for the coords
"Your data on all websites" » This is caused by the need
to read the URL and page title as well as injecting the keyboard shortcut and DOM
parser script in to all possible pages.
Further information on these permissions can be found in their corresponding developer
You won't be warned about these permissions but Template does request them from the browser:
"contextMenus" » This is required to support the
"cookies" » This is required to make cookie information
accessible to templates.
"notifications" » This is required to display
notifications to the user (if the associated option is enabled).
Once again, further information on these hidden permissions can be found in their
corresponding developer websites:
