Essential browser extensions + other digital tips

I am doing a bit of 'fall cleaning' as it were of my tabs, accounts, browsers and other miscellaneous digital footprint type of activities.

I am ripe for browser tips and method suggestions but particularly interested in browser extensions, browser opinions and overall usage tips. 

  • What browser do you use? Why? What do you think about some alternatives like Ecosia or DuckDuckGo?

  • What extensions do you have or recommend to others (pw managers, security, ad-blockers, anti-tracking, etc.)
  • How do you organize your digital life via tabs, folders and your bookmarks bar?
  • How often do you clean up your tabs, files, or digital footprint?

Please comment below! I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  • I use Brave which is a more secure version of Chrome.  The Chrome webstore works with it so you can still get your favorite extensions.  I use startpage.com as my search engine.  It still uses google as the search engine, but it is more private.  Like Duck Duck Go uses Bing, but is more private.  I create folders on my bookmarks to keep categories separate (Personal, Work, Side business, Financial...)  About the only extension that is an absolute requirement is Last Pass.  I move the shortcuts I use the most to the top of the list withing each folder.  Every few months I will look toward the bottom and see if there are any I don't use or that do not work any longer.
