One can spend quality time on Reddit while learning something new, exploring and by sharing. It’s far better to spend time on Reddit than on Facebook or other social media sites. Reddit has been the front page of the internet for a long time. It’s a huge online community where people can share their thoughts and ideas. Some of it researching and learning and some of it wasted laughing at jokes or videos. If you’re a Chrome user, there are a few extensions out there that can make your Reddit experience even better.
The Reddit Enhancement Suite
Reddit Enhancement Suite has so many modules that it will require a separate article to cover them all. The single extension packs a lot of punch. It enables you to manage multiple logins, infinitely scroll without having to hit next all the time, offers faster access to account settings and a simple way to subscribe to conversations. There are also filters for posts, spam, tags for usernames and so much more.
Reditr Client App
The Reditr Client App takes the usual page layout and changes it completely to column views. It makes it easy to browse different categories, follow different conversations. Like RES, the Reditr Client App also has an account switcher with RES integration. It also has a chat client, gallery mode for picture posts and different themes.
Shine For Reddit
SHINE for Reddit allows you to switch between grid view and list view, change the sidebars and other things. It also integrates into RES. There are quick toggles available for Multireddit sidebar and the actual sidebar. There’s a FAB button as well, available for toggle, settings, and search. While many core features are free, there is a ‘donation’ required to access all of the features.
Reddit Companion is an extension that lets you share a webpage on Reddit, right from that web page. You just have to add a title for the Reddit post and hit submit. You’ll be taken to the Reddit’s submit page, where you can further add the subreddit and other details. Apart from that, you can even upvote/downvote already shared web pages. It also shows new message notifications, which can be enabled from the options page of the extension.
As the name suggests, it changes the comment threads so they are within a single comment. This makes it so much easier to follow comments, especially the more popular posts whose comments run into dozens of the hundreds. You can choose different font types, night or day mode and change the layout to a style that is much easier to live with. Following a single conversation in a single threat is a work of genius and makes using Reddit so much easier.
If the video has been shared on Reddit, the usual dumb comments on YouTube itself are swapped for the marginally more intelligent comments from Reddit. It effortlessly combines the two platforms and replaces the worst of one with the best of the other. The catch is that the video has to have been shared on Reddit for it to work.
Reddit Platinum adds more than thirty new keyboard shortcuts to the site, offering functionality such as switching between Reddits, upvoting and downvoting, quickly scrolling through top level comments, and jumping between Reddit tabs. Any computer power-user knows that keyboard shortcuts are the key to work Fast.
