Is there a way to globally switch out a word

I want to switch out the name of a certain "technology" on any website with "sand castle" in the hopes that my daily browsing gets a lot funnier. if it works i will as well think of a good word for any POTUS and maybe musk and bezos :'-)

I thouht it might maybe work with ublock? i have never done anything advanced with it so i dont know.

      lmao

      Are you interested in building hyper-scale database services in my butt? Do you want to revolutionize the way people manage vast volumes of data in my butt? Do you want to have direct and immediate impact on hundreds of thousands of users who use AWS database services?

      These are core systems development positions where you will own the design and development of significant system software components critical to our industry leading storage services architected for my butt. This is a hands on position where you will be asked to do everything [...]

      lmao

      Or the NYT writer who referred to the "Great Recession" as "the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks" (scroll to the bottom of the article).

        Just make your own collection and add the ID and name to the app, you'll be able to add any Firefox extension to the mobile browser, most of which work.

        I even have tampermonkey running and a bunch of custom scripts.

        Unfortunately there's not much you can do if it's not possible through the extension API.

    I like that. It's like replacing a certain meteorological phenomenon by "other people computers".
