However, until that time, not all developers adhere to this principle when creating extensions.
These so-called multi-purpose expansion may cause undesired operation of the user interface and reduce the speed of loading pages – sometimes very significantly. We make a difference in the policy of the store with one goal – to correct errors and provide users with more control over web content, – said Eric Kay.

They may also combine several minor functions that are individually difficult to refer to expansion. That’s why Google has decided to formulate their demands in the policy of the store.
