Chrome browser plugin Crypter encrypts text&files

Lazar Crypter is a Chrome app encryption plugin that ciphers text and files with the standard AES256 cipher, to encrypt the files or text data does not need to be uploaded to any server, encryption is carried out in the browser using Javascript, this makes man in the middle attacks impossible as well as stopping any remote vulnerabilities on a server relied on for encryption. The size of encrypted files is limited to a few Megabytes due to the plugin saving it as data URI.
