Top 8 Hilarious Firefox & Chrome Extensions You Have To Try

Updated on January 16, 2015

One thing I love about modern internet browsers like Chrome and Firefox is the ability to customize them with useful extensions. You can design your browser to have any feature that you might want. On mine I can see the weather, have an advertisement blocker, and can auto fill forms along with many other useful extensions. This article will detail some of the funniest browser extensions available and why you might enjoy them. It's great to have an extension that is useful but sometimes it is also great to have an extension that makes you smile!

8. Block the Kardashians!

Are you sick of seeing Kim Kardashian's face everywhere? I love reading the news but I get so angry when the Kardashian family dominates the main headlines. There is one news site I read every day and Kim Kardashian is a featured story at the top every single day for a year now. This extension for Firefox/Chrome will solve this problem. The Kardashian Blocker for Chrome will block any website that advertises this talentless family. It's hilarious but also very useful.

7. 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.

6. Millennials Begone!

We live in a day and age when the millennial generation dominates our social and online world. Everyone is talking about the millennial generation. It doesn't mean we old timers have to like it though. With this extension you can erase the word millennial from the web. Instead the word millennial will be replaced with "pesky whipper-snapper." You can't completely get rid of millennials but you can laugh at them.

2. Jailbreak the Patriarchy

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. Things written about males will swap to females and vice versa. Have you ever wondered what the world would be like through the eyes of someone of the opposite gender? It can be funny to think about but also very educational.
