labnol/unsubscribe-gmail
As an alternative to Unroll.me, this open source Google Script helps easily unsubscribe from newsletters and bulk emails in Gmail. Without giving anyone permission to scrape your inbox.
Blurr for Chrome
A Chrome plugin for anonymizing your digital footprint using obfuscation.
LivePhotosKit JS
Did you know that there’s a javascript library for playing Apple’s Live Photos on the web? It has a full API for customizing controls and playback options. I’m not certain I’ll find anything useful to do with it, but smart move on Apple’s part to start opening the format up to legitimate use outside of Photos.
