Everybody uses Chrome, but I don’t; Google is too powerful already, no need to feed the beast anymore. At most, I have a copy of Chromium installed, as a last resort. Because I’m a faithful Firefox user, and of course I install many extensions in it. Here are some of those that I systematically add to every computer I use.
- Dark Reader so that web pages automatically adapt to the current “Night Mode” of the computer. The official website explains it all, it’s a great add-on.
- Facebook Container because I really don’t want Facebook to track me at all.
- GNOME Shell Integration is a great way to easily install GNOME extensions in my system. But for this to work I remove the
snapinstallation of Firefox, and install it via
apt. I actually remove snap altogether from Ubuntu, if you ask me.
- Grammarly to make sure that what I write on the web is decent enough (unfortunately it’s the only piece of the Grammarly system that actually works on Linux.)
- Joplin Web Clipper to save web pages into a Joplin notebook.
- KeePassXC Browser providing me with access to my KeePassXC database. Again, for this to work properly, both Firefox and KeePassXC need to be installed via
apt, and not via
- uBlock Origin because it makes the web lighter and faster.
Also, I don’t know if many people know about this, but there’s a “Chromium equivalent” for Firefox, called LibreWolf, and you might want to check it out.
