As per the title.

What are the go-to default browser extensions that you cannot go without?

My (small) list:

Bitwarden Password Manager
Checker Plus for Gmail
Grammarly

I used to have uBlock Origin and Adblock for Youtube, but I don't use those anymore since switching to Brave Browser and subscribing to YouTube Premium a few months back.

AdGuard - the very first one that gets installed.
Free Download Manage - yes some of us have crappy internet connections and still need download managers.
Real Debrid - for the seed box to download torrents/magnets because my ISP block P2P.

I try keep extensions to a minimum. They can really affect your browser's speed.

1. Bitwarden
2. AdGuard
3. CSS Scan

And that's it.

I know CSS Scan v2.0 is highly rated, but how does it compare to the competition. I used ToyBox Inspect in its early days and though I liked it I switched to Hoverify which was at the time an LTD deal, and it has served me well since. I know of CSS Inspector which is a rip-off from CSS Scan, but is unsupported for obvious reasons. What I want to know is how CSS Scan v2.0 compare to Hoverify, just more simplistic? I have checked the demo on their website, and it does seem to be a simplistic tool which gets its job done.

ToyBox and CSS Scan Pro v2.0 are more comparable due to its focussed niche, but I just want to know if you have used Hoverify and how it compares to CSS Scan v2.0 from a production point of view?
