Seems what I needed was system restart. Safari working, on to Chrome.

For me it was Adblock Plus - EasyList English filter list - once I removed it, the text was gone.

I think it disappeared a while ago already (weeks). I remember because I reported it, reason was superfish.com though. You just still had it installed?

Btw, here's a replacement extension for you: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... di/reviews

Someone is claiming in the reviews this is malicious too, but I think he is mistaken and actually means "Incognito This!". Besides, this one hasn't even been updated since Dec 2013 (if that is actually required for the malware to become active).

Mine was "Neat Bookmarks". Not so neat, after all. Thanks for the solution to this, it was very annoying.
