Chrome Extensions in use
This is an evolving list of extensions I've added to Google Chrome (desktop) to improve my internets. To add these to your Chrome, do a Google search for "[extensionname] extension" and the "Chrome Web Store" link will be the first result- click the "ADD TO CHROME" button at the top right of that page and you're set.

I always prefer looking at a black page with white text over a white page ("staring at a lightbulb") with black text when reading/browsing, especially at night. Be sure to play with the image invert settings to your liking per site
