Our public developer extension (IDE) has been untouched since March 2019. It may looks like Web Robots were stagnating, but actually we were constantly working on our internal systems like portal, cloud workers, cloud orchestration. We also has several internal releases of IDE for our staff.

So the IDE published to the Chrome webstore is just the tip of the iceberg.

It is now September 2020 and time has come to release the new version to Chrome webstore. We are glad that our extension passed webstore’s permission audit from the first time as our extension requires access to quite a few Chrome APIs in order to work properly and people at Google are getting ever stricter in their review process for extension permissions.

All changes and new features are listed in the changelog here.

PS our IDE extension works only for users who have an approved account on Web Robots portal.
