This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed). 

api accesses

hi and thanks for sending that link. we read that article and will add https support asap. the api requests are needed to get the geo information about the remote site, like country, city, ect.

This feature was added to provide more information within the pluginbar, not only the ip.
