Minimal, the browser extension for peace of mind

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:

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