saw high ratings and lotsa downloads for tis virus scanner extension
install on brave browser [chromium based] and firefox [mozilla based]
unable to scan as the scan process require API key. but on the extension settings
Your MetaDefender API KEY info was blank. Thought it was browser problem. disable all the other extension but the api key just doesnt load. Disappointed with the extension. using the website is much slower

Awesome plugin. Basically VirusTotal in your browser.

I swapped from using a VT extension a while ago and have been very impressed with this. Nobody needs all the pointless AV engines, and OPSWAT uses the ones I trust
Now it has domain-checking of any sites you visit, and I was surprised and very pleased to see a warning for a spam domain which my other block-lists missed.
The use of StopForumSpam is a great idea as it includes useful evidence for many IPs and addresses.

used to have 4 stars... now it has broken my chrome...have had both OPSWAT METADEFENDER ext & EZ-LINK ext on chrome for years... no conflict till now...

It nw is incompatable with EZ=link and i need my EZ-link way more so i have to remove OPSWAT.,. thaNKS.
ERROR BELOW IS THIS: First none of my google searches will load and i get this 400 error:
"400. That’s an error.

Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. That’s all we know."

it says its extension fjampemfhdfmangifafmianhokmpjbcj
which is yours
This extension failed to modify the response header "x-frame-options" of a network request because the modification conflicted with another extension (OPSWAT File Security for Chrome).
