re: My list of almost indispensable Chrome Extensions VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hey,

Thank you so much for sharing your list of Chrome extensions. I really find such posts helpful. It's good to know which tools fellow developers use to accomplish similar tasks.

I also use the Clear Cache, JSON View, and Grammarly extensions. I wonder what extension do you use for your new tab? Also, don't you block ads?

I use have been using DailyNowCo as my new tab extension for more than a year now. It helps me save tons of time by helping me stay up to date with all new development news. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

 

I don't block ads. As annoying and potentially privacy-invading as they are, there are people who genuinely rely on income generated from ads to support themselves.

I know a lot of the extensions allow for whitelisting sites to show ads on, but I'm lazy and listing all sites that are from people I want to support or from sites that can't be used at all unless the ad-blocker is turned off is too much effort.

 

You are right about the fact that there are some people doing really great and rely on ads for income. I try whitelisting the sites which produce good content and I want to support. But for the most part on the web, I find ads annoying.

 

Hey Saqib,

I use Brave - highly recommend it, so it blocks ads automatically, unless opt in to see ads for BATs (Basic Attention Tokens). I used DailyNow before, I'll give it another try - thanks for the reminder.

 

Ever since I have started using Chrome (more than 7y) I didn't use any browser. Would you mind sharing why you prefer Brave? I have heard of it but never tried. Especially, how good is it in terms of supporting web APIs and providing web development tools?

Sure, Daily improves constantly and I can't recommend it enough! BTW great work at bookmarks.dev 🙌

It is Chromium-based, so the Developer Tools and Extensions work the same as in Chrome. I use it for privacy reasons and performance (before all on my phone). It's worth trying...

That makes sense. Thank you so much for sharing, I will definitely try it out.

 

While I think Brave is amazing and I use it as my main browser while working, my daily driver has been Vivaldi for almost a year now. I started to love Vivaldi's level of customization a lot. From search bar at the top of bottomm to quick notes on pages and a focus mode, Vivaldi has been a best for me.
