User reviews
I like the idea of the Zette service, and so far the service and this Firefox extension are working as advertised. However, this Firefox extension requires the "Access your data for all websites" permission, which is excessive since it implies this extension can track and exfiltrate my web browsing activity. I'd like the developers to change the extension to either (1) only access data on the specific websites that Zette supports, or (2) have the option to only activate on the current tab when I specifically request it (i.e. use the `activeTab` permission).

Risk impact

Zette is not very risky to use and it requires a lot of sensitive permissions. Avoid installing this add-on unless you absolutely trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood

Zette is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.
