. 1 Pocket
If you often stumble across articles online that you can not always read, then you should consider installing Pocket, a simple but powerful extension that lets you store articles, favorites and bookmarks as well as videos Pictures – at the push of a button. You can then access this content later by going to the Pocket Web site or downloading an additional app to your phone or tablet. This is a great way to catch up on longreads when you commute a lot or when you get bored in the loo.
. 2 AdBlock Plus
AdBlock Plus does exactly what it promises – blocking annoying ads online. These include big banners, pop-ups and these skippable but frustrating ads at the top of YouTube videos. There are many alternatives out there, but this is based on one of the originals, AdBlock (which, confusingly, was not created by the same people behind AdBlock Plus) and is still updated and maintained. While blocking ads can remove many stains and annoyances from your favorite websites, try to be reasonable with this extension. Many websites depend on advertising revenue. Consider putting the little boys on the whitelist.
. 3 Proxmate
ProxMate is an extension that lets you view content online that may be blocked in your country. The extension uses a proxy server that tells the web page you are looking at that you are accessing the web site from another location. However, the legality of having access to regionally restricted content in the UK is difficult to determine and depends on what content you want to access and why. Before using this extension, always check to see if you are violating applicable laws or conditions.
. 4 Ghostery
They are almost always tracked online. Most of the time tracking is harmless and implemented for your convenience – for example, a website could track which type of content you like best to make better suggestions for each new visit. However, this persecution can sometimes become too intrusive and a bit scary. Ghostery allows you to keep track of the trackers. You have the option of blacklisting those you think is unnecessary and whitelisting those you find helpful – that's always a good thing.
5. Reddit Enhancement Suite
If you use Reddit even semi-regularly, you'll wonder how you can do without it. Reddit Enhancement Suite, also known as RES, optimizes your Reddit experience and provides advanced controls that would otherwise be unavailable to ordinary site users. Features include, for example, changing accounts on the fly, adjusting the overall reddit style, saving comments, tagging users, and more. With a thriving community and regular updates and enhancements, RES is a must-have for almost all Reddit users.
. 6 Google Dictionary
Double-click any word installed in your browser with Google Dictionary and a full definition of the word will appear in a small box directly above it. For some words, there is also a button in the window that plays a record of the correct pronunciation of your speakers when clicked. Click on More below for translations, word origins, more definitions and even a graphic showing the history of the popularity of your chosen word over the past 200 years. You can also use the extension like a normal dictionary by clicking on the small book icon in the upper right corner of your browser and searching for a specific word.
. 7 Click & Clean
Click & Clean is a small extension that does a great deal. First and foremost, Click & Clean is designed to protect your privacy online by deleting some of the local traces of your Internet activity. It's also great for removing the junk that your browser has accumulated over time and protecting your system from malware. With a single click, you can clear your entered URLs, scan your PC for malware, clear your browsing history, clear your download history, delete temporary files, clear cookies and clear your cache, delete client-side Web SQL databases, and remove Flash cookies. You can also tell the extension to delete all these variables each time you close your browser – although we recommend this only to people who are particularly concerned about privacy.
. 8 LastPass
LastPass is one of the most popular password managers currently available. Once set up, it can encrypt, generate and save your passwords for you. One reason for the success is the ease of use. The extension is located in your browser window and will automatically log in to your websites and sync your passwords wherever you need them. In addition, it is cross-platform, meaning that it works not only on most browsers, but also on most common operating systems. If you are a little worried about how secure your password is, it's worth trying this extension. However, if you want to use all features, you will have to pay a small fee.
. 9 Buffer
The Buffer extension provides an easy way to share content across Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms. With a single click, you can share a webpage, image, video, or thought on your favorite social media platform and plan to publish it at a specific time. For example, if you are interested in many people seeing a specific post, you may want to post first in the morning or at lunchtime. This is very useful if you are a night owl and want to share content when more people see it, or if you know you are busy on a particular day but still want to stay active online. In addition, the extension works with additional features that can only be found on the Buffer website. So when you go to bufferapp.com, you can do awesome things like analytics behind your posts.
If you use Reddit frequently, you often click on links to YouTube videos. Unfortunately, the comments below these videos can often be petty, pointless, irrelevant or offensive. This can be difficult. However, Reddit usually has more to offer and is praised for its comments on a regular basis, thanks to its effective, simple electoral system and its large community. AlienTube takes the comments from Reddit and submits them to YouTube videos. This generally makes the comments less annoying and occasionally educational or funny.
. 11 Hide Comments from YouTube
If Reddit comments annoy you as much as YouTube comments, you do not have to show anything – just install the Hide YouTube Comments extension and they'll all disappear. An almost identical extension for Firefox is also available under the heading No YouTube Comments. An additional extension worth trying out is to hide Fedora. This does not hide all YouTube comments, but hides troll comments that are currently in vogue and often include the idioms "le reddit", "fedora", "m & # 39; lady" and so on.
12th The Guardian
If you're reading this, you probably like the Guardian – but do you know there's a Guardian expansion? After installation, a small Guardian icon will appear in the upper right corner of your browser. This icon will warn you if new articles have been published in your preferred areas of the Guardian that can be changed in the settings menu. If the Guardian is your main source of news and you are a regular visitor, then this is a great extension. Otherwise, you're better off with a larger feed reader, like Feedly.
. 13 FeedlyMini
Feedly is a popular news aggregator that lets you collect news feeds from multiple sources in one place. Download the FeedlyMini extension and add feeds much easier and more efficiently. After you've installed FeedlyMini, you'll see a small feedly icon in the lower-right corner of your browser. Click on it and you will see different options, such as: For example, adding the current site to Feedly, saving to EverNote, tagging, bookmarking, or sharing the site on social media. If there are some websites on which Feedly is irrelevant or of such nature (such as Netflix), you can blacklist them and prevent the icon from appearing.
Have you ever seen anything you should not see? PanicButton will help you avoid these awkward moments and it's also wonderfully easy. After installation, a large red exclamation point appears in the upper right corner of your browser. During an emergency, click the exclamation point or "panic button" and your tabs will be bookmarked in a separate folder and shut down – all in a snap. The only thing left on your screen is an empty tab. Click the alarm button again and everything will be restored. You can tie the panic button to a specific key if you prefer.
15th HTTPS Everywhere
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the encrypted version of HTTP, the technology protocol that determines how Web servers and browsers respond to commands and how messages are sent and received. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) – a non-profit organization that wants to defend civil liberties in the digital world – HTTPS Everywhere is a nice little extension that forces websites to use HTTPS even if they use less secure and unencrypted HTTP ,  16. The Great Suspender
If you have several tabs open at the same time for a long time, you know that your browser can become very sluggish. This inertia is usually caused by small memory leaks. The "Big Suspender" is an extension that tries to solve your browser's clumsiness by disabling or "exposing" any unused tabs, thus reducing your browser's memory requirements. The extension is very configurable – you can choose to have the tabs automatically disabled or manually disabled after a certain amount of time. You can even whitelist some tabs while keeping auto-hijacking enabled. This is only available in Chrome, but Suspend Tab is a good Firefox alternative.
Pushbullet sends all the notifications you receive on your phone to your PC. This includes, but is not limited to, phone calls, texts and WhatsApp messages. Very useful if you do not want to look at your phone all day. Perhaps more useful is the ability to send text, URLs, images and screenshots from your PC to your mobile device. Before using Pushbullet, I had to email a long URL when I first saw it on my PC and wanted to open it on my phone. That was a stunner and lengthy – Pushbullet solves the problem.
18th Turn off the lights
A handy little extension, if you watch a lot of videos, turn off the lights, darken everything on your screen except the video itself with a click on a button in the URL bar. This should give you a slightly more comfortable viewing experience, which will put less strain on your eyes. If you've ever used BBC's iPlayer in a web browser, you'll be familiar with the effect. The extension works for just about every video site, including YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Hulu, Metacafe and YouKu.
19th Lazarus: Form Recovery
So you've spent the last 45 minutes filling in a form online and you just click on "Submit" to make the page crash. How's it going? With the Lazarus Form Recovery extension installed, you can sit back and activate the self-controlled mode while effortlessly restoring your hard work. Lazarus allows you to do this by automatically saving all input when filling in forms. Whenever a website expires or inexplicably disappears, you're just a few clicks away from reinserting the text that was in your original copy.
20th Hover Zoom
Hover Zoom is another of these extensions that does not bring much, but after a few weeks you will wonder why it is not implemented in all modern browsers standard. After installation, simply hover over any thumbnail that you see online, and Hover Zoom will magnify the image without navigating the page. This is very handy for popular sites like Reddit, which is littered with pictures, or Deviantart, where you can see endless galleries of amateur and professional artists. This is a Chrome extension, but a good FIrefox alternative is Thumbnail Zoom Plus.
21st Cloud to butt
The cloud is big. The cloud is important. The cloud is everywhere. But what if you are tired of the cloud? The answer is to install Cloud to Butt, an extension that changes all instances of Cloud to Butt, so you'll never have to read anything about the cloud again. For example, "Google is putting a log in its cloud" now becomes "Google puts a log in his bottom" and "Cloud Security: A Quick Start Guide" becomes "Security Note: A Quick Start Guide". It will not get old. Always.
