I don't believe them

I don't believe them. I mean, yes, I think they value an increase in safety and performance, but it seems clear to me that those aren't the primary reasons for this change. If they were, then Google's response to the complaints would have been very different (and, as the article mentions, they would have been talking with extension developers about this from day 1).
