Google Chrome Smooth Gestures spyware

Recently, we gave up on FireFox and switched to Google Chrome. FireFox became extremely slow and was really slowing us down.

Now, in Chrome, we had to add all extensions we were used to have in FireFox, so we came across Smooth Gestures.

Lucky, we are developers and we are using Developer Tools (F12) in Chrome, so we could see all the calls (authorized and not-authorized) from our browser.

The yieldsquare.com call is what most of us call a spyware. It wasn't found by BitDefender and was called for every single page we were accessing.

Solution?

Uninstall Smooth Gestures from Chrome.
