AdBlock requires permission to access to all websites data.
I'm feeling not comfortable, when some software have access to all my internet activity. Maybe create limited version of AdBlock, which will not need this permission, but will not work on all sites? This would be great. I usually not need to block ads on my bank page.

    Hi Andrelo,

    Due to the way Chrome's permissions work, AdBlock requires this permission in order to be able to work in all tabs in the browser. That said, AdBlock doesn't collect any data other than what is required to make it work and block ads.

    Our source code is also available for everybody to inspect at
