Low level MIDI support via Javascript

strange right requested, when installing Jazz-MIDI on Chrome

Postby free-notes » Sun Jun 18, 2017 3:19 am

Hello,

when I try to install Jazz-MIDI on Chrome, it demands the right to "read and change all data on all websites that I visit".
This seems a bit suspicious to me.

I am afraid, I cannot recommend this to my users. All I would want, is to play midi data with Javascript. The plugin should not
have access to all visited websites, and what is more, it should not be able to modify data of visited sites.

Is there a good reason for such a heavy requirement?

Kind regards

Thank you for your concern!

There is some data exchange between the content and background scripts, implemented by writing and reading in the invisible <div> on the page.
You can check the source code in http://jazz-soft.net/download/Jazz-Plug ... z-midi.zip
Please let me know if you have any suggestions how to make it work with more restrictive permissions.
