What is minimal?

Minimal is a browser extension to experience a minimal, less attention grabbing internet experience. Internet should be a tool, not a trap.

Minimal is driven by core values:

  • Users must actively make choices by themselves.
  • Users should easily find the content they are searching for on a page, not the content a platform wants them to see.
  • Service providers can convince users to use their platform, but only through their services' inner quality.

This extension is being developed for the greater good, it is a free and open-source software, you can check its code and contribute on gitlab.

To get a complete list of the changes made to the user experience by the minimal browser extension, check the CHANGES file. Those changes are following minimal's manifesto.

You can get minimal for Firefox on Firefox Add-ons.

There is an experimental version for chrome on the chrome web store but it is not offically supported.
