What does this URL do that opens each time Google Chrome loads?

You can see an example of this in app.any.run below:

I'm thinking this might be related to Chrome checking if extensions need updates.

It's the URL used to download the Chrome Cast extension for Google Chrome.

  • Do you know why this tries to install each time Chrome launches? Does Chrome install the cast extension by default on launch each time? Sep 3, 2019 at 13:28
  • @user3290171: not sure why; I guess it might be related to updating that extension. Sep 3, 2019 at 13:37
