Announcement: the Google extension for ConfluxPortal has been upgraded to v0.6.11. For new users: please download the portal extension directly from the portal official website. For previous users, you will have to migrate your wallet account to the new extension in order to upgrade to v0.6.11. The new version only fixed some existing bugs. The old Portal extension will not be compatible with the new extension, meaning that you can only have one portal extension.
