Pro Tip For Extension Management
While some extension we mentioned like Momentum and Mercury Reader Can always be on, Having extension like Turn off the lights off is preferable and can be activated only when required rather than watching every video on youtube in dark mode and it auto activates when it sees a video on website and puts the text u were reading to the black model which can be annoying, on the other hand, VPN like Hola VPN can be activated only when required else browsing from other country using VPN means you are missing on the content that is curated for your region!
To control when extension can run on the site, right-click on the extension icon and select “ This can Read and change Site Data” to “on all sites” if required or change to “when you click the extension” if only Required to activate on your Desire! This will give you a much better experience with these Extensions!
