Favourite browser extensions?

I use Vivaldi for its sidebar, we all know which are the best blocker and security extensions, but what else do you run?

Mine are:

Bitwarden:

Can’t remember passwords :smiley:

Languagetool:

Excellent spell checker

Vimium

Control your browser from your keyboard

Powerclose

I open a lot of tabs, especially from the BBC as I read the news, right click and close all tabs from this domain.

Bukubrow

I use buku, this is the extension for it.

Dark Reader

I took a while to be convinced, but dark themes are best (for me).

What do you use?

On Firefox, currently (apart from blockers):

  • Bitwarden
  • Worldwide Radio
  • Feedbro

On Firefox, I use;

  • Adblock Plus
    I need to get rid of those ads popping up everywhere.
  • Lastpass
    I can’t remember all of my passwords.
  • Netflix auto-skip
    One less mouse click to binge-watch.
  • New Tab Homepage
    I hate the default new tab.
  • Youtube High Definition
    All videos play at highest definition and in theater mode by default.

only ublock origin, but this is essential for me!

uBlock Origin is the only one that’s constantly turned on.

Then there is:

NoScript
HTTPS Everywhere

If the laptop leaves the apartment, and I want to watch BBC:

At home I got a VPN running in the router.

Edit: This is on Vivaldi btw.

CanvasBlocker seems like a good idea, have added it (chrome version).

i wound’t use any canvas-like browser on chrome, i often read everywhere that chrome doesn’t have any decent canvas extension.
This is the one i use for firefox:

Sorry to say, but it’s pointless with them. Browser/device fingerprinting is difficult to block!

You can thank Google and Facebook for that. Probably more too :confused:

On Waterfox (grrr):

addons

A shame that uMatrix maintenance has stopped, but at least blocks can still be turned on manually and set per page; just not the auto-blocking happening, as far as I can tell.
