6. The NicCage

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you wish you could see more Nicolas Cage? Well, now you can with the NicCage extension for Firefox. This extension replaces almost all images on the internet with pictures of Nicolas Cage. I actually used this for an April Fools prank on my husband. I installed it when he was asleep. When he woke up and logged into Facebook, every single person had a Nicolas Cage profile picture. It was hilarious—a great app for some good laughs.

This extension is hilarious but also a great way to teach a lesson in gender inequality. With the Jailbreak the Patriarchy extension you can swap the gender of the internet world.
