A chrome extension that adds a colored border around websites that match user inputted preferences.
This extension allows you to flag specified websites by highlighting the website with a custom colored border.  This is especially useful for developers who run their web applications on many different environments and who are constantly switching between a dev, test, and production version of an app or database.  Because the application may look the same on all environments, it's easy to accidentally do something on the production environment that shouldn't have been done.  

With URL Colors, you can easily have the browser flag important websites for you by specifying a the keyword to match against the tab url, the border color, width, opacity, whether or not the border should blink, and the interval of blinking.

It also has a demo mode, or snooze mode, so you can shut if off while presenting for a specified period of time, without worrying about reactivating it later.  It automatically turns back on for you!

Risk impact

URLColors requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install URLColors if you trust the publisher.

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

URLColors may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

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.
