Figured this will be a good topic of conversation. What browser extensions are you using?

HTTPS Everywhere:

HTTPS Everywhere is a Firefox, Chrome, and Opera extension that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.

Canvas Fingerprint Detector

Canvas Fingerprint Defender is a multi-browser addon that let you easily hide your real canvas fingerprint by reporting a random fake value. According to many tech blogs, completely blocking canvas fingerprint is not a good idea, therefore reporting a fake fingerprint could be the best solution to better protect your privacy. This addon simply adds a small noise to the actual fingerprint and renews it every time you visit a website or reload a page.


Protects you against tracking through "free", centralized, content delivery. It prevents a lot of requests from reaching networks like Google Hosted Libraries, and serves local files to keep sites from breaking. Complements regular content blockers.

uBlock Origin

Free, open-source ad content blocker. Easy on CPU and memory.


Ghostery demystifies online privacy by exposing the forces that lurk behind your screen and enabling you to block them.

NOTE: Ghostery sells user info to advertisers, don't use it.

What do you guys use? Since I block a lot of requests at the network level using a Raspberry Pi ( ) it allows in-browser plugins to not have to work so hard. If I disable my Pi-Hole and go to any regular clearnet site like reddit or browse any news website, those plugins definitely do some heavy lifting in blocking all the junk requests.

HTTPS Everywhere, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin + Nano defender and violentmonkey for some scripts.

For what I've known, Ghostery sells info, or had a polemic about that, I suggest you to check it and uninstall it, sometimes less is more.

Good call on Ghostery, I just looked into it, and you're right. I left it in the post but striked it out and added a warning.
