  • Redirector

    Browser extension (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Edge) to redirect urls based on regex patterns, like a client side mod_rewrite.

  • Probably the most underrated software I use daily are some of my Firefox extensions.

    https://github.com/einaregilsson/Redirector redirects my YouTube, Google, Twitter and Reddit links to privacy friendly frontends (i.e. Invidious, Startpage, Nitter and Libreddit).

    https://github.com/proginosko/LeechBlockNG helps me staying away from time sinks on the internet during the day.

    On the development side I use...

    https://github.com/aaronvegh/nsregextester as my tried and true tool for regex debugging.

    https://github.com/mhutchie/vscode-git-graph is a marvelous Git GUI for VSCode.
