Your conclusion that a user should "go ahead, download the damn extension at some point after researching it, or if not ever, . . . accept being miserable" is ludicrous, though in a way that is characteristic of the era we live in
What I said was slightly more nuanced: "In the end, you have to look at yourself, ask what you want in a browser, research what's out there, and then to some extent (because nothing is 100 percent) you have to be willing to take a chance. Why, I'd say (if you're using this Blink browser, made to be fulfilled via extension), go ahead, download the damn extension at some point after researching it, and seeing that it looks promising to you, would fill a need if it works right, would make you happier. And if you are never prepared to do that, to at least test it, then accept being miserable.
