Two browser extensions for a better Steam experience

Two browser extensions for a better Steam experience

Here's a quick little way to optimise your experience when browsing the Steam store using Google Chrome (or any other Chromium-based browser) or Firefox.

The first extension is for Protondb, the website listing all the tweaks needed to make "incompatible" games run on Steam Deck (and Linux). Installing this extension adds a compatibility rating next to the title.

ProtonDB for Steam – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)
Download ProtonDB for Steam for Firefox. Shows ratings from <a href=“https://outgoing.prod.mozaws.net/v1/f8db0358d96c1a46b9a77aa02190de811e40819051b1d42dd013c17276046ffd/http%3A//protondb.com” rel=“nofollow”>protondb.com</a> on Steam
ProtonDB for Steam
Adds the ProtonDB rating to games in the Steam store so you get an idea of how it will run before you buy it!

The second extension is for steamdb. This option will show your current player stats, the historical lowest price the game was ever on offer on Steam (so you know, if you want to wait for a sale), when the game has last been updated and what the steamdb-rating is. (The steamdb-rating uses a better algorithm than Valve's rating system. It's always worth a shot to look at this score when shopping for new games.)
