What browser add-ons do you use(need)?

With the on going disaster with Firefox losing its add-ons that people have installed it got me thinking.

What add-ons do you need installed on your browser and would you consider changing browsers if the add-ons you used were available on a different browser?

The only add-ons i currently need are below and these are available on all the main browsers so this has let me ditch Firefox and move to Vivaldi to give it a proper test.

Lastpass
Ublock
FVD Speed Dial (dependent on a browser not having a good speed dial of its own)

Adblock plus
No redirect
Script blocker

The last one needs to be tuned as it can prevent some checkouts working but it does prevent mouse clicks from being subverted and drive by shootings.

Re: What browser add-ons do you use(need)?

As an aside, I gave up with AdBlockers - and started using pi hole instead : https://pi-hole.net/ well worth a look.

Will have to try cookie manager with the hope it'll protect certain cookies from being deleted in Vivaldi after running privacy eraser.

Re: What browser add-ons do you use(need)?

uBlock Origin
NoScript

These are the only essentials.

I currently only have one other add-on:
The Camelizer

Used to use lots but kept getting corruption issues so just minimal now.

Re: What browser add-ons do you use(need)?

Lastpass is the only essential one. Let's me share but not show passwords with others using Lastpass and works on multiple platforms/browsers.

Does Cookie Manager have the ability to protect certain cookies from deletion as i run Privacy Eraser which doesn't yet have the ability to protect certain cookies with Vivaldi?
