        If you don't want to use custom css, you can just block a lot of visual garbage with custom filters. Judging by anons' screenshots here, it's pretty obscure.

    you can set up custom search shortcuts in the address bar on edge and chrome (maybe other browsers). The result is I just type "y" in the address/url bar and press tab, then type what I want to search for on youtube, then press enter, and it will open a youtube search results page with what you typed, I have this to also work with wikipedia, I just type "w", press tab, enter my wikipedia search, press enter, and like with youtube I am taken to a wikipedia search results page. I use it all the time now. You can add more search shortcuts in settings in edge and chrome if you understand how url search queries work, but you can look up online how to add a site's search to your browser and it will tell you what to enter for the settings.

    Often you can manually change variables in the URL. For example when browsing a shopping site, there may be an option to filter by price. It might only have set price ranges like 0-25, 25-50, -50-100. When you click one the end of the url will gain something like ?pricemin=25&pricemax=50. Well you can edit those manually, submit the URL, and it will work as expected. So if you want to search from $15-$40 you can. Sometimes sites may disable some feature being used with another and by checking which variable each sets you can sometimes get them to combine

    Reader mode in firefox is actually pretty good.
    file:/// for using your browser as an image viewer, video/audio player, a reader of many formats.
    Browser windows are all in one session. Good for grouping tabs.
    If you shutdown your machine before closing the browser, on reboot and fox's restart it'll offer to restore the session for free. No private mode support.

    I like these kinds of threads, but I don't have much to contribute. But maybe some obvious ones might help anons. Sorry that I don't remember the details, but you can just look them up.

    1) On Firefox you can disable the fade to black transition to and from fullscreen videos, feels smoother to me without it.
    2) On Firefox and other browsers you can make it so that tabs don't load unless you open them directly, thus saving system resources. Useful for when you're opening a lot of tabs at once. Can be done directly from about:config or through extensions.
    3) There are extensions for everything you might need and a ton of scripts for Tamper/Violent/Greasemonkey. Just try not to install any shady ones.
    4) If you're on Windows you can disable Startmenu bloat such as Bing search or news. Not really a browsing tip, but Internet related I guess. There are even reg files on How-to-Geek if you don't want to do it manually.
    5) On Firefox and others you should change the settings so that it always prompts you to select the download folder manually. That way you can refuse unwanted downloads.
    I'll post more if I remember any. Also remember that a lot of modern OSs have built in tools for taking and editing screenshots, copy-pasting to clipboard and so on. They're not as good as other programs that do similar things (and are usually free), but they can help your browsing experience nonetheless.

      Oh and of course, another obvious hint, is to look up what search operations you can perform. Stuff like forcing or excluding terms. "" forces exact phrasing, - excludes terms, etc.

      When it comes to Youtube they often mess with the search engine so not all options are always available, but then they come back for no reason. Which makes it all the weirder since it has quite a few search commands built in, such as searching by date or age.

        Anons might laugh at me for this one, but I like to have Avast and Malwarebytes installed, especially due to their browser extensions. They can be a bit too strict at times, but it's nothing a whitelist can't fix. Anyway, the tip is that you can disable the ads from the options menu for Avast so that it doesn't give you unwanted popups. For some reason I had it in my head that it's their way of stressing you into paying for it instead of just using the free version. I felt like a moron once I found the option to disable the ads.

            I wasn't talking about browser ads, but rather OS notifications. It did moronic stuff like trying to sell you a vpn when you opened a private browser window.

            In any case, a long time ago I looked at one of those antivirus testing sites and Avast had the most detections which is why I picked it over others. AVG is basically the same thing with a different interface. These days it doesn't matter much though as all antivirus software is updated online and does a decent job.

    Fn + Ctrl + Up/Down arrow | Ctrl + PgUp/PgDn = tab switch.

    You can drag selected text or links into the search bar.

    You can download basically any video you can watch extremely easily to your PC without exiting browser 90% of the time. Dev console, network tab, refresh page, filter by size, look for video file extension like .mp4. Some websites block this, when that happens, sometimes these things work:

    1. blocking javascript sometimes makes websites serve them a barebones video player that you can directly download from.

    2. If you've found the video file but the extension is different and doesnt actually download a video, usually something like m3u8, you can click on it, click the stack trace tab that comes up, and look for a direct link to the video there. Usually after <anonymous> but sometimes elsewhere. When you click that link it'll take you to another link which you can then search for video extension filenames.

    If none of the above work, you've found one of few websites that actually block this shit effectively, or you haven't looked hard enough. Use jdownloader if this is the case. Obviously easier to use a downloader in the first place though.

    This even works with YouTube but they separate audio and video and I think sometimes split up the video itself.

    You can do something similar with radio streams as well but it doesn't work as consistently. Look for a .pls file using above methods or just fricking around with inspect element, download it, open it with a text editor and you have a direct link to the radio stream that you can do whatever with instead of having to run it through their own israeli player.
