Starting today, Google is rolling out 2 new badges for extensions on the Chrome Web Store, the Established Publisher badge and the Featured badge.
These badges mark a major update to extension discovery and promotion on the Chrome Web Store, allowing users to install more trustworthy extensions that provide a good user experience.
We are honored to announce that Tabox has just been awarded both badges!
