Thanks cypherpunks!

I already added a better description in the recent updates to our extension on the Chrome Webstore: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/snowflake/mafpmfcccpbjnhfhjnllmmalhifmlcie

Let me know what you think of the phrasing there. We'll also update the description for the Mozilla addon as well.
