    Why nominate “Tab2QR” which requires the extraneous “tab” permission that is not necessary for the function it provides, when you could nominate other similar QR extension that don’t require any permissions at all?

      Since you mentioned, I had a quick look at the code.

      In WebExtensions, the pop-ups and sidebars don’t have any connection to the tabs. In order to get the URL of the Active Tab, it has to query all tabs (looking for active one). That is what the “tabs” permission is needed and used for.

    Somehow these are not related to each other I guess 🙂
