2: Extension

Conceive, design and program a browser extension that meaningfully alters the experience of browsing the web. Design and publish a webpage to introduce and host your extension.

A browser extension is a small software module for customizing a web browser. Extensions modify an existing site locally, and they're commonly used for interface modifications, ad blocking, and cookie management. Using CSS and JavaScript, design an extension that alters the browsing experience–it could subtract, replace, add, distort, abstract, confuse, or remix material on existing websites. Your extension could be intended for use on a single website, or on all websites.
