** Permissions **
ModHeader currently requires 6 permissions:
1, "webRequest"
2, "webRequestBlocking"
3, "<all_urls>"
4, "storage"
5, "contextMenus"
6, "alarm"

"webRequest" and "webRequestBlocking" are required in order for request headers modification to work. Because ModHeader doesn't know ahead of time which website the modification should apply to, it needs to request permissions for all URLs (3). "storage" permission is needed to save settings to the cloud. "contextMenus" is used to enable quick pause/unpause by right-clicking on the icon. "alarm" is used to periodically auto-sync profiles (if auto-sync is setup).

Was a solid extension before the bait and switch they pulled recently by limiting free accounts to 10 rules.

I use this extension every day for work. I have a large number of headers in a profile and it wasn't really an option to slim it down to 10 so I gladly paid for it because I've used it for so long. There's a lifetime purchase option that worked best for me. I ran into an issue once I paid for the license and the developer set aside the time to work with me to see what was wrong. It was a simple fix but I'm glad he made the time to help. Everyone needs to be paid for their time. This is an invaluable tool and I can't work without it. I've used it for free for a number of years so I'm glad to pay for it now.
