I want to share some Chrome extensions that I collected and found useful for me. Share your opinion if there will be extensions that are new for you or you think it’s not good to use that and there are some better ones.

Chrome extensions:

  1. Dark Reader

Is it like a flash grenade for you when you browse websites and get into the light theme? Well, it is for me 😄. This extension allows seeing like every website in dark theme. Take care of your eyes, use a dark theme for the night and daily browsing. You even have the settings to configure the dark them for you, by playing with the brightness, contrast, font, and other filters. Also if you don't want to see a dark theme on some special website or the dark theme is not matching well there, you can just turn it off on this particular website.

2. uBlock Origin

Hate ads? Then this extension is for you, with content-filtering, including ad-blocking and it goes easy on with your CPU and memory. Right now, for me, it shows that I have blocked 178,873 ads already since installing it, well that’s massive already.

3. HTTPS Everywhere

This extension is for your security, which automatically switches thousands of sites from insecure “HTTP” to secure “HTTPS”. It will protect you against many forms of surveillance, account hijacking, and some forms of censorship.

4. Fake Filter
