Apparently, Google just changed their Web Store policy to forbid misleading marketing. Let's report this then...

Found two more extensions being marketed in this way. One is called "Bild vergrößern", the other "Wiki-Infos." Supposedly, different publishers for all of them. All have been reported to Google.

@WPalant The "quiz" behaves fine for me (en_US, Firefox, Windows 10). Got through the whole thing.

@r000t That's because you didn't get redirected, probably because your browser's user agent wasn't identified as either Firefox or Chrome.

I'm guessing the bad behavior is also region locked. Moderators in the States won't be able to reproduce.

@r000t With your user agent I get the redirect script. You are probably right and this also checks the IP address.
