  • 1Password
    • The best password manager on the market!
  • Claire
    • “Shows an orange cloud in the omnibar when you are browsing a site that uses Cloudflare”
  • CouponMate: Coupon Codes & Deals
  • EditThisCookie
    • Every web developer should be aware of this extension. Cookie editor.
  • Enhanced Steam
    • Steam web version enhanced
  • Flashcontrol
    • “Block Flash from loading automatically and allow content only on selected sites.”
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • minerBlock
    • I think uBlock Origin should do the work, but I haven’t removed this yet.
  • Nimbus Screenshot & Screen Video Recorder
  • Octotree
    • Absolutely recommended. Adds a nice file navigator at the left side of a GitHub repo web page. Very convinent when you need to find a file.
  • Merge Windows
    • Click to merge all tabs on every Chrome window, pretty convinent
  • Openload Video Only
    • Very convinent when you use Openload frequently ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    • When you open an Openload link, it automatically redirects you to the actual video link. When used with a download manager extension (I use IDM), you can download it as soon as you click on the link.
  • Pushbullet
    • One of my favourite extensions. Send everything across your devices.
  • Proxy SwitchyOmega
    • A must-know and must-have app if you use proxies to access the Internet or behind a firewall like GFW. Extremely recommended.
  • Super Netflix
    • “Change video quality, Control video speed, Upload custom subtitles and much more - Make Your Experience on Netflix More Enjoyable.”
  • Tampermonkey
    • Very recommended. Userscript extension.
  • Toby for Chrome
    • “Better than bookmarks. Organize your browser tabs and access them quickly anywhere.”
    • Not very frequently used, but worth to mention.
  • uBlock Origin
    • A well-known ad-blocker
  • Universal Bypass
    • “Universal Bypass has bypasses for sites which make you wait (Adf.ly, Adfoc.us, etc.), sites which make you do something (sub2unlock.com, viid.su, etc.) and even trackers (Bit.ly, Goo.gl, T.co, etc.). Plus, you can write custom bypasses!”
    • Very recommended
  • User-Agent Switcher for Chrome
    • A must-have for web developers and pentesters.
  • WebRTC Leak Prevent
    • “This will protect against WebRTC leaks.”
    • WebRTC by default would give malicious web apps your real IP address even if you are behind a proxy. Use this to protect your IP address.
  • WorldBrain’s Memex
    • Very helpful & convinent. Very recommended.
    • “Find previously visited websites & PDFs in seconds. Full-text search your browsing history and bookmarks.”
