      Weird question, but does anyone know of a simple tab viewer or organizer for Firefox (bonus points if it works on iOS)? I have... way too many tabs open, and I want to see what I can bookmark before closing rather than having to either close everything or manually check each tab.

    2. A "reverse spell checker" in Firefox

      I was reading the topic about ableist language:

      Replacing ableist and mental health exclusive language

      I realized that, regardless of my opinion on the use of certain words like "crazy" or "insane", there are almost always better words that can be used to make my writing better, even if it's just a random comment on Tildes.

      What I would really like would be an extension that supports adding words to a custom dictionary, and will then highlight those words with a reminder not to use them. It would be even better if I could, per word, provide a custom reason not to use that word.

      I searched around a bit, but could not find an extension that does this. Unfortunately, LanguageTool does not support such a feature.

    3. Anyone using a lightweight browser with Linux?

      I've got a crappy Chromebook running GalliumOS (Xubuntu) and Chromium is slow as molasses. I tried a few other browsers like Otter and Falkon. They're alright for most sites -- not Tildes, but this seems consistent with QT5 browsers.

      Anyway, outside of text browsers, anybody have any light weight browser suggestions?

    4. Is Firefox still a good (enough) browser for privacy?

      Someone posted this on the privacy subreddit. I also ended up finding this and this after doing a bit of searching. As someone who isn’t in the CS/IT spheres (chemical engineering is my...

      Someone posted this on the privacy subreddit. I also ended up finding this and this after doing a bit of searching. As someone who isn’t in the CS/IT spheres (chemical engineering is my background), Firefox has been my go-to browser for awhile, although I’m being made aware of the flaws of Firefox (most of which go over my head) and behavior of Mozilla. What can be done to fix this, especially considering that Firefox is the only FOSS browser with a significant user base?
