I wrote a (super) simple Chrome Extension for the Telerik Code Converter that just iframes their page in a browser action pop-up. It's been really helpful as I use this tool all the time when I have to port some of my more complex C# code to VB. I was wondering if it would be ethical for me to upload this Extension to Chrome Web Store for other developers to use? Of course I wouldn't ever be charging or profiting from it in any way.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I feel as long as you explain what the code does well enough so no one is confused by what it does, anything can be put in the web store. People will use it if they find the need, it would only be unethical if people didn't have the choice.
