So you went to a page with a description of the seals. And if the extension has permission to "view and modify", it can this description also "read". And even to replace it.

Sometimes this is useful and well conceived. Extension to block advertising scans the content of the page is advertising, and cuts. Or an extension that automatically translates to another language, for example.

Sometimes it can be harmful. For example on the page of your Bank, to see the balance and replace the account number to which you make the transfer.
