    I use my phone for about 90% of surfing, but occasionally I'll use my laptop. These are some extensions I use. What are some that y'all use?


    Clickable links

    uBlock Origin - Ad blocker. This is essential to sanely browser the web. Blocks all YouTube ads and most ads on sites. You can even manually target things and block them.

    Sponsor Block for YouTube - This blocks things within a YouTube video that are not ads. Like a sponsor segment, intro, asking to like and subscribe, end credits, etc...

    Dark Reader - Adds dark mode to any site

    Buster: Captcha Solver - Automatically solves, and sometimes skips, those stupid captchas that make you click the squares or select an airplane from a group of images

    Mini Y - Makes YouTube videos float to the side when you scroll through comments

    Personal Blocklist(not by Google) - Block sites from showing up in your Google search results. Hate when I'm trying to search for something and nothing but Pinterest pops up

    View Image - Brings back the 'View Image' option to Google images instead of just taking you to the website

    Video & Audio Downloader - Can download streaming audio and video from most sites.

    Return YouTube Dislike

    Since Youtube wants to make their own universe magical without "negativity", this comes in handy.

    Bandcamp Streamer

    Essential since Bandcamp is a trash experience when it comes down to your collection.

    You can shuffle your music and etc.
