@panzer: BadAdJohnny seems to be working quite well, so far. No reason to nix it anyway, so I shall leave it installed.

Author pulled BAJ from his site, also BAJ extension cannot be found neither through Google or Chrome Store search engine.

If you ever need to reinstall it, you can get the direct link here: http://alternativeto...tware/bad-ad-johnny/ (click on app store --> Chrome Web Store) or save it in the txt file:

@panzer: That smells a bit fishy. I wonder if the author has been "got at"?

Many thanks for the links.
How does one go about downloading the installer file intact from the chrome store?
I can't figure it out.
I have made backup copies of the two folders (Name: bdgggpliahokemcgimpfcaaeknfbjlce) for BAJ in the Slimjet browser (user data), just in case, and the extension is synced to the cloud, so I can always re-install it, one way or another, but I would like to get hold of the installer, for posterity and for examination/study.

Also, thanks for the Gibbon Tabs link. I am trialling that now.

Well, BAJ is no longer present on Chrome store. We managed to download it just in time ...

Re: Chrome Extensions: Bad Ad Johnny (installer file).
« Reply #92 on: August 15, 2018, 02:59 PM »
The Chrome extension Bad Ad Johnny is no longer available in the chrome web store, but it works just fine as at 2018-08-16. It is an excellent/better alternative to the default built-in Slimjet Ad-blocker extension.
The BAJ extension installer is in the attached file (below).
Once BAJ has been installed, Slimjet persists in disabling it as a PUP, or something, but that behaviour can be changed in the settings.

Don't spend time browsing for themes, but after removing a "morpheus dark" which i could no longer find again,
i stumbled upon "dark theme material pro":
https://chrome.googl...jkabkjedhbdbobofjigm
I like the way the active tab stands out as black and the others more greyish/light black.  :-*
Fits in well with browser gui style too!

If someone finds similar turquoise, i'd take it out for a spin for sure!

It looks a lot like the dark theme that comes built-in with the Brave browser. :Thmbsup:

Hello everyone,
I'm launching this extension called FB2Mate on Chrome
Its function is downloading video from Facebook to computer or Android phone.
There is a issue I want to ask you guys.
The video is downloaded by this extension has its own default name. How can I change it?
I want it to be changed like: fb2mate - (random number string).mp4

Launching as in installing, I took it.  English might not be their native language?

^ oh, yes, of course.

@Akertyna: My suggestion is that you change the download directory for FB2Mate, so there not will be any other videos in that folder. Then you can have a script to automatically rename every file.
