    Hi guys.
    I am new to Decentraleyes, so is there anything else I need to do so I can use it with HTTPS Everywhere?

    Another question...I was using KB SSL Enforcer because it is alot lighter than HTTPSE, but it's outdated so I figured I'd try HTTPSE again. I want your opinions if any of my other extensions should be removed or may cause any conflict?

    All my security extensions in Chrome...
    Avira Browser Safety, CSS Exfil Protection, uBlock Origin, uBlock Origin Extra, Decentraleyes, HTTPS Everywhere

    Assuming this is Chrome, right?

    That's all you need to do with HTTPS Everywhere. I've never noticed the "Encrypt All Sites Eligible (EASE)" setting before. I'm guessing the default is off as that is how it's set on my machine.
    I think I'll leave that setting disabled as it may break some sites.

    Those other extensions look fine.

    Yeah, that one sunk in on me, too. I just happened to open the toolbar tool one day and... "Huh?"

    FYI for all:
    https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2018/12/how-https-everywhere-keeps-protecting-users-increasingly-encrypted-web

    Scroll down to the EASE Mode section. I leave it at its default disabled state. (The whole page is a great read, too.)

    I've been using Decentraleyes and HTTPS-E in Firefox for ages. I didn't know there were any issues between the two in any browser for which they're available.
