Do you keep your browser 'as is' or do you mess with themes and extensions?

I'm not using themes at the moment, but I am running Ad Block since many websites these days are way too aggressive with them and cause lag on the page.

I have a collection of privacy-related addons, as well as a dark theme, a plugin to edit cookies, and a plugin to return Youtube dislikes.
I have never seen an ad on any website for like years I think.

I keep it as is. If I don't, it'll never load. My computer is a piece of muk. Only thing I added is ublock origin.

oh yeah throwing another +1 for uBlock origin! AdBlock/AdBlock Plus have been selling out for years now. uBlock comes recommended by many people including my housemate's university IT department~

Me personally, I use Brave browser which has an ad-blocker in it. As for customisation, I have a lot of bookmarks, but when I book mark a website I remove the name so it is saved as a little icon!

I have a pink tab theme and customised my New Tab window with a screenshot from Hades, the first time I beat the game! As for extensions I have UBlock Origin, GoFullPage and Internet Download Manager. I always customise every chance I get, it's a bit of an obsession. 😌

Spoiler:
I forget how emotions dance when they aren't inside of me
I forget how the sun feels when she isn't around me
And my dreams become sweeter when something is missing
I'm in love with the hunt itself
It makes me feel alive

Mostly just uBlock and NoScript. I used to be a lot more into this security stuff and had tons of different addons for tracker disabling, cookie deleting, https enforcing, history management, referrer stuff, etc. But that was just an unmanageable nightmare so I got rid of it.

I only have one extension on my Firefox browser right now, and that's AdBlocker Ultimate. Completely free, blocks a LOT of ads on basically any site, perfect for bypassing those pesky double required ads on Youtube. I LOVE it.

Chrome and Firefox default UIs look great to me. Maybe just change the color themes every now and then. I have a crud load of extensions, but they're mostly for ad blocking and privacy, pretty similar to everything everyone's already said.
