Below is a list of Browser Extensions that I use on a daily basis.
They're useful for increased productivity, decluttering the workspace & mind, and tracking tasks/projects.

Replaces Chrome, Safari, etc. Designed for privacy. Blocks 1000's of trackers & ads, whilst adding many layers of higher security standards.
