LastPass uses a single master password to keep the rest of your unique passwords safe. All you need to do is remember your master password, and you will be able to log into any website which LastPass remembers. This means that you can have a different unique password for each website you use (which is highly suggested) without needing to remember them (once you enter your master password, LastPass will auto-fill the password for the website).

I would not recommend LastPass. A few years ago I would have recommended it with 5 stars and confetti. But now that LogMeIn (a company notorious for some of the worst customer support in their field, and a company with a checkered history of involvement with "your computer is infected, let me remote in" scammers) has purchased them, they have become pretty awful. The support is nigh nonexistent now, and the browser extensions (without which, LastPass would be completely useless) are not being properly updated. It seems that LogMeIn does not see LastPass as much of a priority at all, yet they are raising their subscription rates. Pretty ridiculous. Also the fingerprint reader support needs a lot of work.

When on lastpass.com you update the contents of a password file, it gets updated only on your side, not on the side of people it is shared with (and the UI does not tell you anything about this). Also, when you want to share a password file with someone, they often have trouble accessing it (bugs in registration or acceptation of the shared document). See More
All common browsers have plugins that allow automatically filling in forms and generating passwords. All form fill information syncs across all platforms, devices, and browsers. Password generator can be adjusted to use or exclude certain characters and patterns. See More
For a PW manager that is entirely web based, this is kind of a deal breaker. And to make matters worse, LogMeIn/LastPass often blame Mozilla and/or Google for not processing update submissions fast enough. Other extensions don't have this issue, so why do you? See More
Web Extensions in FF are partially broken, signs of issues in Chrome; updates are few and far between.
This add-on needs no setup before it starts working because it figures out which connections to block using an algorithm, as opposed to manual lists like other add-ons. Everything works out of the box, you don't have to select blocking lists like in other ad blockers and there's pretty much nothing to configure. See More
It's actually not difficult to get used to. It looks intimidating because of all the switches and buttons, but thanks to the grid-like system like uMatrix uses, you only need to learn a few things to know what everything does, because each spot on the grid is only slightly different in function from the ones adjacent to it, and in a specific way based on whether the difference is vertical or horizontal.

The current build includes a bug which seems to break youtube functionality. However after a bit of searching, a solution can be found. Posted here to help others who might be debugging all their extensions for youtube not loading videos. The solution for many seems to be to keep the autoplay function within Iridium settings ON. Now your videos will most likely load and play again like they should. See More
If using a script manager it is usable across a whole range of browsers. There is a free script available to be used in browser script managers like ''Tampermonkey" which includes all functions of the addon through the script injections. See More
AdBlock+ tends to use a lot of memory, which has been documented in many use cases as well as admitted by AdBlock themselves. Considering there are alternatives out there that can block ads successfully with half the RAM usage as AdBlock, one has to wonder why this is a problem specific to AdBock. See More
Hey. Ads suck. At least, that's what you've always thought. What you actually hate are obnoxious ads that get in the way of your web browsing experience. The unobtrusive ones help make sure this whole wonderful internet thing keeps on going. You might think you hate them, but you love what they do for you. See More
My choice for downloading youtube videos in a click See More
I love this one. It never fails to capture and download videos from YouTube, while many other similar applications fall short. It has easy to use options for the different qualities available, and more advanced options under the hood. The advanced options UI is a little difficult/annoying to navigate, but I have seen a lot worse. If you purchase the conversion license ($15), you can download and convert files in one action. It will convert one video format to another, or you convert videos to MP3, or AAC (or other audio formats) to MP3, etc, etc. Please note that the Chrome version of this utility can no longer work with YouTube, as Google has banned all extensions that download from YouTube.

For other people needing a VPN, recommended is googling (or use another search engine) that privacy guy's VPN company and product reviews. If done there is good information on VPNs and other privacy-enhancing apps, which can be found on privacytools.io or various reddit.com/* subreddits. See More
"Free" VPN access is rarely trully free. There is a huge chance they are stealing your private data as a means to offer you your 'free service'
