Google has removed an application from its browser that let neo-Nazis identify Jews based on their names, after two technology journalists sounded the alarm.

The Coincidence Detector app, taken down on Thursday, used algorithms to single out Jews and identify them with three brackets (parentheses) either side of the name.
