Wow. Nice. I only hope that this doesn't compromise the security of the browser. It has been one of the most security conscious browser out there. Do it right Google, its a great idea.

It doesn't really have much to do with the browser itself -- the main functionality seems to be contained in the extension (correct me if I'm wrong). Since, AFAIK, it's pretty much impossible to install an extension without user stupidity (that is, agreeing to install one you know nothing about), and since it's required to have a two-way install of the extension, I don't think that this can be used for unauthorized remote-control. Of course, somebody will eventually find a way to do it, but it probably won't be practical in terms of actually attacking users.
