browser extensions... let's face it, we all use 'em.
my guess is that the 'pos might use some quality extensions that I don't know about yet (I learned about SponsorBlock here, and it's 100% essential now for making youtube watchable).

so, which extensions are you daily driving?

here're mine (in Firefox):

SponsorBlock - as mentioned. essential for youtubing, skips in-video ads etc if tagged by other SB users
uBlock Origin - I guess this is still one of the best ad blockers?
LastPass - yes
Privacy Badger - blocks invisible trackers (I guess)
LeechBlock NG - for blocking websites. I've had all news sites blocked for a few months now and it's made my life significantly better.

peace and love.

i was originally happy with agilebits and their track record, but they've had issues lately

https://www.cvedetails.com/product/45589/Logmein-Lastpass.html?vendor_id=9363 CVE: 6
https://www.cvedetails.com/product/63422/1password-1password.html?vendor_id=21111 CVE: 5

we used lastpass at an ex-job. each customer tenant had a unique entry in lastpass. we hit their upper bounds pretty quick and had to get on an emergency call because everything was broken and the extension hit 100% CPU on every desktop in fleet

not sure what is dumber, lastpass failing to perform boundary value analysis or my old job trying to shoehorn every customer tenant into their corporate password manager

When a site has a captcha that requires me janitoring while reloading the page to get assets from google then gstatic, then iframes, I usually nope out so it saves me from the internet.

- cookie autodelete - only retains cookies from domains that you've allowed. everything else gets deleted a few seconds after the last tab for that domain closes. gives a good tradeoff of not needing to janitor settings too much - sites Just Work while you're on them
- firefox multi-account containers - just for separate work vs personal sessions. sorta wish there was something better that used the underlying ff session container support. for example reflexively hitting ctrl+t just opens a new tab in the default session rather than reusing the current tab's session
- sponsorblock
- ublock origin

Is there an addon to blocks the ever-present "SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER" popups on every site ever these days?

Also, if you are in web and you put that poo poo on your site, please wrap your mouth around the biggest, thorniest dick you can find.

noscript is installed but usually disabled until i hit a really obnoxious site
https everywhere

also nice honeypot to build browser fingerprints of yosposters.

It embeds the graph right in the product page on Amazon. CCC probably does the same, idk tho never tried it.


Or you mean the use case in general? To show historically how low the price has been as a basis for comparison is pretty handy.
