List of extensions and user scripts

Post by dev » Mon Sep 22, 2014 7:13 am

List of extensions and user scripts I find handy to use. Please feel free to add your own. Tampermonkey needed for some scripts, some do run by the drag and drop method into your extension page.

Adblockplus https://adblockplus.org I use this list to filter abp:subscribe?location=https://secure.fanboy.co.nz/r/fanboy-co ... tle=Fanboy Complete Adblock

Ghostery https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cbmpeaniij

Launchpage https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... enakcngkma

BetterTTV http://nightdev.com/betterttv/ Better options for twitch tv streaming site.

YouTube Center https://github.com/YePpHa/YouTubeCenter/wiki makes viewing youtube better. Use with tampermonkey

Tampermonkey https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... ldmpobfkfo probably the best userscript manager for blink browsers.

Ads Skipper https://greasyfork.org/scripts/3471-ads-skipper skips adfly, linkbucks etc redirection

Anti-Adblock Killer | Reek https://greasyfork.org/scripts/735-anti ... iller-reek removes many protections used on some website that force the user to disable the AdBlocker. So you can continue to visit this website without having to disable your AdBlocker. Compatible with the browsers Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. You need to - Subscribe Anti-Adblock Killer | Filters for Adblockers which are on the page and work in both adblock and adblock plus.

BlockUnloadEvents 1.0 http://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/show/20781
This stops ANY AND ALL javascript that stops you from leaving a page.

Classic Blue Theme for Google Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cmpomohajo I use this theme as I don't like the grey

miniGestures 1.2 https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cnpgmjnhfp no ads and just simple actions. I use it in other browsers that have no inbuilt mouse gestures.

Context Menu Search https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... ejjohldoga

Poper Blocker https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... bkopceiche handy if the inbuilt pop up blocker in chrome doesn't catch all pop ups from sites but also has a handy whitelist if you don't want all blocked.

Google Search Results Style Revert http://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/r ... 09199.html Just makes google search far better to use.

Magic Actions for YouTube - I think this is the best YT addon since it has all great features in one place (dark YT theme, ratings preview, force flash player instead of HTML5 etc...)
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... pllmpfceif

SmoothScroll - Best smooth scrolling plugin i've seen for chrome so far. Brings smooth scrolling like in firefox and also nice middle click scroll, and it doesn't use a process (no RAM usage). https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... mibcpneigj

HTTPS Everywhere - forces HTTPS encryption on all sites https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... donpmejbdp

MetroTab - Best metro-style https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... mbfggdmefd

Prebake is an Adblock filter subscription that blocks large, obtrusive cookie notices. http://liamja.co.uk/Prebake/ (need adblock plus)

AdsBypasser skip ads' count-down or continue page (adfly etc) https://greasyfork.org/scripts/4881-adsbypasser

Removed hola because now known for giving up people's ip addresses etc.

uMatrix if you spend the time is better than anything else for security and the ad blocking is pretty comprehensive but that's not the main feature.

Dark Skin for Youtube makes Youtube go dark-side

I really enjoy Dark Skin but somehow seems to be in conflict with Magic Actions

I can no longer rec Your Download Box as a simple download manager, because it inserts ads obtrusively. I have switched to an even lighter extension, Nice Downloads, at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... epoahkegpm. The only thing I miss is the dynamic toolbar icon telling you when downloads are complete. But that may be coming.
