Extension inventory. General discussion.

Post by Passenger »

Here's mine.

Adblock Plus
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cddilifddb

NoScript
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... cbfeoakpjm

I consider these two absolutely essential for security.
The Slimjet built in ad blocker (which I disabled) is good enough, but I'm used to Ad Block Plus from before and like the ease of customizing.

YouTube NonStop
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... mpbkbnocid

Stops the recent new YouTube feechur of stopping the music to ask if you're still there.

YouTube No Buffer
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... dfnejkpegd

Make YouTube behave. No autoplay except in playlists. Or within playlist if you like.
Not entirely satisfactory, but seems the least worst of several similar I tried.

Reader View
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... maellmclnh

Remove clutter for readability. Only use it occasionally.
One of many similar extensions. I like this one because its presence in unobtrusive when you're not using it.

Favicon Changer
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... jfjpflpeoo

Functionally similar but different in kind to something I used with Firefox.
Don't really need it. Just playing with it.

Don't add custom search engines

What the title says. Installed but disabled.
OS -- Windows 7
Slimjet 27.0.7.0
Native ad blocker disabled
NoScript, AdBlock Plus <<== I consider these extensions essential

Recommend moving from adblock plus to ublock origin. Ublock Origin is the fastest, most efficient adblock period. Plus its just primarily 1 developer without the political issues with Adblock whitelisting that's shown up in the news.

I see it uses the same format custom filters.

I may give it a whirl.

Replaced YouTube No Buffer with YouStopper
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... ankdjljepb

Really not as all around adaptable, but it does just the bit I want with less overhead.

Got rid of Reader View and Don't add custom search engines.

Added Remove YouTube Autoplay
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... najhdnokhj

Really totally suppresses that feature, not just set it to off.

I really like the Favicon Changer, but it's a resource hog. Still on probation. :mrgreen:

Still fiddling around with Ublock Origin. Haven't decided yet.

Anybody else want to give a complete inventory? Thanks.
