Why?

The coin mining in a browser using scripts like Coinhive is a real problem for everyone. These scripts may cause your browsers working slow or fully unresponsive, drain a battery of your notebook. Any webmaster may add only one line to a code of website to start monetizing by coin mining.

This protection works for all browers. You don't need to install a browser extension.
