Google Chrome Extensions That You Might Need

Google Chrome Extensions That You Might Need

Do you use Google Chrome as your web browser? Do you add Google Chrome extensions to improve your web browsing experience? There are thousands of Chrome extensions to choose from on the Chrome Web Store; most of them are free. But that doesn’t mean that you should add all of them to your browser because you don’t want to slow your browser. That said, these are Chrome extensions that you should know about. They might be obvious to you, or completely new. Let’s look at them!

 

Momentum

Do you find Chrome’s “New Tab” page somewhat stoic and boring? With Momentum, you’ll have a personalized productivity dashboard. Once you add this extension, whenever you open a new tab in Chrome, you’ll be greeted with a stunning photo, inspirational quote, and the question, “What is your main focus for today?” You may also use its widget for your to-do list and add links to your favourite sites for easy access. Oh, and a weather update is also displayed in the top right-hand corner of the browser.

 

OneTab

This Chrome extension is a productivity lifesaver! Through this, you can dump all your open tabs into a single list of tabs which you can save within the extension or export on its own for safekeeping. So, if you’re tired of dealing with tab clutter this is for you! This will definitely help you improve your browsing experience.

 

Grammarly

This Chrome extension checks the grammar and spelling of everything you write online. So, say goodbye to typo errors or grammar mistakes in your emails, Facebook comments, tweets, and so on. What’s more, it offers accurate, context-specific suggestions aside from spellings checks (but you need to have a Premium account to get this feature). Oh, but this Chrome extension is free.

 

Tab Wrangler

How many tabs do you have open right now? Wild guess? There’s probably too many to count at a glance. That is why you might want to check out Tab Wrangler. This will automatically close tabs after they’ve been inactive for a period of time. While your pinned tabs won’t be closed even when you’re not browsing them. And closed tabs are easy to recover, with a click of the Tab Wrangler icon to see the list of closed sites.

 

Adblock Plus

Annoyed with the ads you see while browsing? With Adblock Plus, a large selection of ads will be blocked either replaced them on your screen with a white space or collapse them into the format of the page. You have the choice to either select from a list of ad networks or block them individually. The best way is just to use the whitelist feature to turn ad-blocking off on sites you visit frequently.

 

Those are some of Google Chrome extensions to improve your browser experience and get the most out of your time spent on the web. If you have suggestions for other extensions, let us know in the comments!

@Carla_P nice!

 

These are my favorites:

 

  1. Password Alert - Will notify you if you try to enter Google password outside Google. This helps with phishing and think this should be mandatory.
  2. Grammarly - You've already mentioned it and also think this should be mandatory.
  3. Chrome Remote Desktop - This is useful to connect to PC from Chromebooks. Also to provide remote support to others.
  4. High Contrast - This enable high contrast for Chrome. Makes it easier to read in dim light.
  5. HP12C - This is a fully functional HP12C Financial calculator. Even works offline!
  6. Amazon Cloud Reader - Access Amazon books. Books can be made available offline!
  7. Subtitle Video Player - View subtitles on videos.

Hi @Paladin, totally agree that Grammarly should be mandatory. I haven't added Password Alert to my Chrome extensions, but I think I would be adding this. Thanks to you.

@Carla_P Most welcome. We must all play a part to keep our Google Accounts safe :-)
