Why the change in permissions for Edge extension?

I just was notified of a TrueKey for Edge update and it wants new permissions.  Some of them make sense for the features TrueKey has, but others seem unnecessary.


The ones that don't make sense to me are:

  • Read and change your favorites.
  • Read and change your cookies.
  • Send and receive info to and from your apps (there is no TrueKey app on the app store last I checked, so I don't see how this could be necessary)


Can someone explain why TrueKey needs all of these permissions?
