  • clipious

    Invidious client for android

    Invidious because that's the first one i stumbled upon and it's easy to install and use. I also built an android app for it

  • clickbait-remover-for-youtube

    Replaces thumbnails and modifies titles of videos on youtube.com

    Because that also removes useful channels (as it, for some inexplicable reason, actually works on most people, and is thus essentially required for people doing this as a job): Clickbait Remover for YouTube randomizes the thumbnail, and normalizes capitalization of titles.

  • Revelo Payroll
