App for Google™ Paint is the easiest way to open and use Google Paint (Drawing) application from your desktop machine (PC, MAC or Linux). Clicking on the toolbar button, renders paint UI in a standalone UI.

App for Google™ Paint is designed to operate similar to Chrome Apps. In other words, it opens in a simple and stand-alone popup window (as opposed to the toolbar-panel or sidebar), and once closed, completely clears-off and won't have any further background activities. Having this behavior, it is considered a very lite addon and does not add any additional burden to your browser.

Important Note: App for Google™ Paint does NOT belong or related to the Google in any ways. It is an unofficial app that is developed and maintained independently. The official Google Drawing software is only released for the web. This unofficial app (browser addon) is a wrapper to the original Google Drawing web application and tries to make it usable as a browser plug-in.

When you open the popup, you will see a toolbar with 5 buttons at the right side. Toolbar buttons are self-explanatory and if you hover over any of them, a title shows up with a short description. Note, after few seconds the toolbar will disappear by itself. But when you move the mouse to the right-side area, it will appear again.

Note: in order to report bugs, please fill the bug report form in the addon's homepage.

Risk impact

App for Google™ Paint requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

App for Google™ Paint has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
