Browser extension brings Timeline support for Chrome (and Firefox) !

Honestly, i’m pretty blown away by how well this works already despite it technically being a beta/initial release.

I initially disabled timeline after installing 1803, but this made me re-enable it. I haven’t tried see if this works cross-platform, i.e. opening up the synced items via the Microsoft Launcher on Android. Would be amazing if it works!

    <p>This add-on can:</p><p class="ql-indent-1">Access your data for all websites</p><p class="ql-indent-1">Display notifications to you</p><p class="ql-indent-1">Access browser tabs</p><p>…while all this is necessary, I am sure, for the add-on to work, I for one will pass on it.</p><p><br></p>

        <blockquote><a href="#292802"><em>In reply to FalseAgent:</em></a></blockquote><p>Probably not. I am just tired of everything looking at what I do.</p><p>I have not looked into programming with the MS Graph, but provided the application is just taking the browser data and putting it there, it is no more a privacy issue than timeline is…and since Microsoft and ISP all have the information anyway, any privacy is gone already.</p><p>Ad blockers are probably more of an issue.</p>
