Haha no worries, nice quote!
Just one more thing I'd like to ask here....more hardware related...
Using this extension to refresh multiple tabs at once does appear to be placing a big demand on CPU power, nigh-on 100% during the time that it is performing it's task (which takes about 15 seconds). Obviously I realise that this is normal and unavoidable as I'm not exactly running the most sophisticated of devices - a 4 year old i3-powered notebook.
My reason for concern is that because I am using the extension possibly 5-6 times within a 5 minute period multiple times a day (using it to refresh horse racing odds price pages in the run-up to races, just before they start), is there a chance that this could prematurely wear out the CPU due to repeatedly max-loading it in quick/short bursts? From what I gather, heat build-up is what kills processors over time, but heat build-up is not the issue here because I don't use the extension for long enough for heat to build in the first place.
I guess what I am trying to ask is will these frequent (but short) burst of operating at 100% cpu power SIGNIFICANTLY reduce the life/cause degradation of my device's CPU?

Im a rookie and purely recreational pc user. Im utterly obsessed with security (even though I consider myself a safe and law-abiding internet user!) and run a combo of the following freeware security suites.....
Regular scans with Malwarebytes, AdwCleaner, JRT, HitmanPro
