Interesting. Anyhow I expect this is leading towards Google having more of a walled garden and eventually banning Ad Blocking extensions and loop-holes like Tamper Monkey.

Just means changing instructions.

1. install TamperMonkey from Chrome Web Store
2. add scripts from UserScripts.org into TamperMonkey

Yeah, if you don't like TM. Honestly, I was resistant to this method, but since we had those headaches a few months back with directly installed .JS extensions, I installed TM. Quite frankly... it works better than the locally-installed .JS extensions ever did...

Well, yes, that would get me off of Chrome. But I would go kicking & screaming.

I sincerely hope that this isn't the direction this is going.

Nope.

Do you see a button in the lower right of the map editor that looks like a couple chain links?

That's the new permalink...

Is the WME "Permalink" considered to be a extension or script?
Today it has disappeared from the WME screen.
a. rebooted
b. cleared cache
c. updated windows
d. searched forums for anyone with similar issues
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated

Developers just have to upload their extensions to the webstore. That's not very complicated... For example Toolbox is already on the webstore.
