  • libcurl

    A command line tool and library for transferring data with URL syntax, supporting DICT, FILE, FTP, FTPS, GOPHER, GOPHERS, HTTP, HTTPS, IMAP, IMAPS, LDAP, LDAPS, MQTT, POP3, POP3S, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP, SCP, SFTP, SMB, SMBS, SMTP, SMTPS, TELNET and TFTP. libcurl offers a myriad of powerful features

    That actually looks quite practical and convenient. I'm a wget fan myself, but have to use curl sometimes when collaborating with coworkers, and would use curl more often if it implemented the features described in its github wiki -- https://github.com/curl/curl/wiki/JSON

  • httpie

    As easy as /aitch-tee-tee-pie/ 🥧 Modern, user-friendly command-line HTTP client for the API era. JSON support, colors, sessions, downloads, plugins & more. https://twitter.com/httpie

    https://github.com/httpie/httpie has stuff like that built in, it's a great tool

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • ht

    Friendly and fast tool for sending HTTP requests

    Many HTTPie users moved to xh. It's a reimplementation written in Rust and is much lighter and faster than the original. Supports HTTP/2 too.

  • uBlock

    uBlock Origin - An efficient blocker for Chromium and Firefox. Fast and lean.

    Firefox has its own "Enhanced Tracking Protection", which is eclipsed by pretty much any specialized content blocker (such as uBlock Origin). Anyone who cares for that stuff has probably turned it off and installed a better extension for that, and for people who don't, well, it's completely unnecessary.
