Is This Denglisch?

Here are some English words that are now used in German. Of course, we just need to add the German infinitive ending ‘-en’!

brunchen – to eat brunch
chillen – to chill out, to relax
downloaden – to download from the internet
toppen – to top, to exceed, to be better
updaten – to update software or data
zappen – to zap from one TV channel to another
tricksen – to trick

Do you have any more to add to my list?
