As someone who spends a significant amount of time browsing the internet, I have come across numerous browser extensions that have enhanced my online experience. Here are my personal recommendations for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and other popular web browsers.
To ensure online security, a password manager is essential, and 1Password is currently the best option available. The 1Password browser extension simplifies the process of saving and filling passwords, addresses, and more. It offers strong passwords and securely stores them within the app. Autofilling passwords, credit card details, and personal information becomes quick and convenient.
Online browsing often involves dealing with an abundance of ads and pop-ups that can be frustrating. uBlock Origin is an effective ad blocker that significantly improves the browsing experience blocking various types of ads, including malware-ridden ones. It also doubles as a security tool, protecting users from potential cyber-attacks.
For those who enjoy saving money while shopping online, Honey is a useful browser extension. It automatically finds and applies discount codes at the checkout page, ensuring maximum savings without requiring manual searching for vouchers.
GDPR pop-ups on websites can be annoying and deliberately designed to make rejecting cookies difficult. Consent-O-Matic eliminates these pop-ups automatically disabling unnecessary cookies, safeguarding users’ private data and improving the browsing experience.
When browsing through product reviews on platforms like Amazon and eBay, it can be challenging to differentiate between genuine and fake reviews. Fakespot utilizes AI to analyze the trustworthiness of reviews and assigns grades to help users make informed decisions about their purchases.
Privacy-conscious individuals who use Facebook can benefit from the Facebook Container extension on Firefox. It isolates Facebook, preventing it from tracking users across the web after leaving the site. For Chrome users, alternatives like Disconnect or Ghostery can provide similar tracking prevention.
Disable Google Lens
Google Images used to offer a useful reverse image search tool. However, this functionality has been removed. If you want to disable Google Lens, there is an extension available that can restore the previous image search feature.
These browser extensions can significantly enhance your online experience improving security, blocking ads, saving money, preserving privacy, and aiding in informed decision-making. Give them a try and elevate your internet browsing.
