Chrome and Chromium Extensions - Let's get awesome, useful and protected!

Today, we're going to get an eye-candy dashboard, a useful extension from Google and an extraordinary protection / privacy tool.


Momentum basically replaces the dashboard with a beautiful photo, a watch, weather, an inspirational quote and a "main focus" that you can set at the beginning of each day.

Momentum is very simple and intuitive. Every time you open a new tab, you will have a high quality image background with a much complete control panel than the one that comes by default.

Ublock Origin

This is one of the best ad-blockers available for Chrome / Chromium, as well for other popular browsers. It's free, Open-Source and easy to config.

Ublock Origin provides a set of custom settings, filter lists and rules to allow and block ads and your selection of websites, while keeping others open for viewing. It's easy on memory and CPU footprint, but has more filters than other popular blockers.

Lists of filters are loaded and enforced

  • EasyList
  • Peter Lowe’s Ad server list
  • EasyPrivacy
  • Malware domains

More lists are available to select if you wish

  • Fanboy’s Enhanced Tracking List
  • Dan Pollock’s hosts file
  • hpHosts’s Ad and tracking servers
  • Spam404
  • And many others
