So I just ditched chrome for Firefox. Apparently it's much more customizable but I'm a Firefox newbie so I'm not sure where to start. What does /g/ customize in their browser?
Ublock(adblock without the Jew)(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock/)
Greasemonkey for some scripts(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/)
Cookiemanager to get into sadpanda(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cookies-manager-plus/)
Youtube downloader to download youtube videos(https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-video-and-audio-dow/)
That's all I have except for some addon that finds the alts accounts of people on the WoW forums and lists them under their avatar and name with a link to their armory as well as an addon that enables extra flags for /int/ and /pol/ for State flags or province flags.
I left Firefox for Vivaldi because it slows to all fuck once you do anything heavy (flash, videos, etc) and have lots of tabs. Vivaldi and anything else Chromium based use more RAM but multitasking doesn't cripple the entire browser so it works better.
I achieved this look with a theme, some extensions and a Stylish script. Not really sure what would appeal to you, but just for example you can use Stylish and Greasemonkey to make any part of your browser Aero like Windows.
I remember the dev of Bazzacuda Image Saver saying there would not be a version of his addon for Chrome because Chrome did not offer the functionality to make it work. It's an excellent addon, so it is probably worth checking out.
As someone already pointed out, you can easily download Youtube videos with Firefox addons. I use Flashgot, but you have plenty to choose form.
T b h the only reason I'm using chrome instead of firefox is that on firefox some stuff doesn't work like puush
also, I don't even know why but on firefox youtube videos are loading slow as fuck compared to chrome
this is the original:
what's not in there:
auto-hidden boardlist or custom boardlist
shadow animations and transitions
moved filter and search buttons bottom right
Is there a technical reason why there are 2 entries in under the application settings for PDF?
As firefox for me cannot preview pdf's I open with it now, it tells me unsupported format / file helper not found.
>Firefox is a slow piece of shit
>IceCat has compatibility issues
>Chrome doesn't have TreeStyleTabs
>Vivaldi isn't good enough yet
Why isn't there a good browser that just covers everything I want? Like a Firefox that's fast, but actually works.
>unironically needing addons to get into sadpanda
Fuck, even my TV's shit browser has sadpanda access. Using an addon is in fact a lot more work than doing it the normal way.
>it slows to all fuck once you do anything heavy (flash,
useful to create accounts on shitty websites asking for a registration to access their content
>uBlock Origin and uMatrix
For privacy and to kill Google
Your life won't be the same with it. I installed 4chan-X and Oneechan scripts for 4chan, which you may find here : https://github.com/ccd0/4chan-x https://github.com/Nebukazar/OneeChan
I suggest you to tick the box "force noscript captcha" to avoid tracking. The new captchas are insane. You may prefer the catalog view enabled by default and randomization of your images is never a bad thing.
OTR-encrypted chat. You may find it here : https://crypto.cat
You should check your 4chan address : if it begins with http:// it means that everytime you're on a public wifi network (university, shop) anyone can make a bot and keep a log of everything you do. With this add-on you'll browse websites such as 4chan in HTTPS by default.
Useful to have a minimal idea of the security of the website you're browsing. It doesn't detect poodle attacks, for the record, but it shows stuff such as perfect forward secrecy or TLS.
To generate sandboxed tabs. It means you can connect to 4 or 5 Facebook accounts in the same window. It's rarely useful but it saves minutes connecting/disconnecting and frustration.
Blocks some trackers. Used by Firefox in private mode out of the box.
Useful if you use Flash. I hope you don't need it.
Didn't want to start a new thread.
I just moved from Firefox to Chromium.
Is there a guide to get rid of the botnet as much as possible? I'm pretty sure I've seen it somewhere on /g/, but I can't find it anywhere.
