  • Project mention: Can anyone verify this information about privacy? | /r/onlinesecurity2023 | 2023-12-04

    ~Using privacy plug-ins or browsers. You can block our site from setting cookies used for interest-based ads by using a browser with privacy features, like Brave, or installing browser plugins, like Privacy Badger, Ghostery or uBlock Origin, and configuring them to block third party cookies/trackers.

  • browser_extension

    A browser extension that redirects popular sites to alternative privacy friendly frontends

  • Project mention: Something peculiar in my 2yo's bedroom led me to a revelation about our universe | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-26

    Most of the time you can just replace twitter.com with nitter.net or nitter.it but when these instances are down or blocked you can use other instances listed here: https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances

    But as the other commenter said Libredirect is the way to go: https://libredirect.github.io/

  • multi-account-containers

    Firefox Multi-Account Containers lets you keep parts of your online life separated into color-coded tabs that preserve your privacy. Cookies are separated by container, allowing you to use the web with multiple identities or accounts simultaneously.

  • Project mention: Mozilla names new CEO as it pivots to data privacy | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-08

    It is an extension for Firefox, but one created by Mozilla. It's official in that sense, but it does seem a little strange it's not included by default.

  • web-ext

    A command line tool to help build, run, and test web extensions

  • Project mention: Show HN: I made a CLI tool to create web extensions with no build configuration | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-30

    I’ve been pretty happy with web-ext, I’m curious what abstractions and configurations Extensions.js avoids comparatively. I’m assuming you’ll still need a manifest.json, and it looks like both use npm/package.json for dependencies.

  • ipfs-companion

    Browser extension that simplifies access to IPFS resources on the web

  • privacy-redirect

    A simple web extension that redirects Twitter, YouTube, Instagram & Google Maps requests to privacy friendly alternatives.

  • Project mention: YouTube started slowing video buffer with adblock enabled | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-13
  • keepassxc-browser

    KeePassXC Browser Extension

  • Project mention: GitHub Passkeys are generally available | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-25

    A password manager can easily implement passkeys just like it implements passwords.

    Though last I checked no browser had created an API for extensions to implement the passkey API. KeepassXC's implementation for example has to inject JS into every page to override `window.navigator.credentials` ( https://github.com/keepassxreboot/keepassxc-browser/pull/178... ). It works but is brittle, so a proper way through extension API would be nice.

  • webextension-pixiv-toolkit

    A web extension for Pixiv

  • Project mention: How to download videos | /r/Pixiv | 2023-06-18
  • read-aloud

    An awesome browser extension that reads aloud webpage content with one click

  • Project mention: Ask HN: Any good (free?) TTS article readers? | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-14

    I use the Read Aloud Firefox extension to read newspaper articles and the wandering inn stories. Works well for me. In the configuration there are free and premium voices. I enable Google Translate voice and increase the speed a bit.

    Main repo (website there too, or search on Firefox extensions): https://github.com/ken107/read-aloud

  • motrix-webextension

    A browser extension for the Motrix Download Manager

  • simple-tab-groups

    Create, modify and quick change tab groups. Inspired by the Tab Groups app :)

  • shortkeys

    A browser extension for custom keyboard shortcuts

  • UserAgent-Switcher

    A User-Agent spoofer browser extension that is highly configurable

  • Project mention: Blocked again? Here's what works! | /r/youtube | 2023-12-07

    If you are on Firefox, you can install the UserAgent-Switcher and set it to Chrome. The UI might be a bit much if not familiar yet, so let me explain it briefly. Click the app and then select from the top drop down menus Chrome and Windows. Then pick one of the Chrome versions listed numerically, e.g. Chrome 118.0.0.0. Next at the bottom right of the add-on menu, click Apply (container) and then refresh the tab. Here's a link: https://github.com/ray-lothian/UserAgent-Switcher/

  • webscrapbook

    A browser extension that captures web pages to local device or backend server for future retrieval, organization, annotation, and edit. This project inherits from legacy Firefox add-on ScrapBook X.

  • ScratchAddons

    All-in-one browser extension for Scratch.

  • Project mention: How do I revert the new Scratch update??? | /r/ScratchUnblocked | 2023-07-09

    Scratch Addons has a way to customize it, and if you want 2.0 colors on 3.0 pages, you can use the hex codes in these files: https://github.com/ScratchAddons/ScratchAddons/pull/6357/files

  • SearchJumper

    Yet another awesome web extension for switching search engines, can also search anything (selection text / image / link / find in page) on any engine with a simple right click or a variety of menus and shortcuts. Build with React & Material-UI. (WIP).

  • Project mention: Show HN: A browser extension to instantly switch engines and customize workflow | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-01-17

    I enjoy collecting various search engines, but some of them lack support for GET/POST searches and switching between different search engines can be a hassle. So, I developed this browser extension that enables automated searching on websites that don't support GET/POST through simulated input and clicks. It also offers one-click switching between search engines. Additionally, it highlights the searched keywords on the search results page. Lastly, it allows cross-domain data fetching and displays the information in a pop-up layer within the current page.

    GitHub: https://github.com/hoothin/SearchJumper

    Give it a try. Love to hear your thoughts!

    Thanks!
