Top 8 Google Chrome Extensions

by Nishant Bhati Digital marketing expert

We all use Google Chrome for browsing as it’s one of the best browsers which works smoothly and fast. But do you want to make Chrome personalized and function powerfully? Extensions are the secret to this. There are thousands of extensions available for different purposes. These extensions can be installed on Chrome for Windows, MacOS, etc.

Here are the 8 best and most useful extensions for chrome to revolutionize your browsing.

1. Momentum

This extension changes Chrome’s ‘new tab’ page with a colorful, aesthetic landscape. The page will have a clock, date, and day with quotes written on it. Similar options are available on Chrome Web Store but Momentum is much better than them. If you use the URL bar in Chrome to browse then it’s quiet for you but those who frequently use the ‘new tab’ might find it difficult.

2. Panic Button

Do you often browse random things at work, and fear to be caught by your manager? Panic Button comes to your rescue. This extension adds a little button on your Chrome clicking which will hide all your open tabs and add them as bookmarks for later access. You can operate it through your keyboard for more ease. Amazing, isn’t it? 

3. Strict Workflow

Do you often find yourself losing concentration while working? Strict Workflow will help you out. It blocks the opening of unnecessary and unrelated work pages while working for 25 mins and then gives you a 5 mins relaxation by allowing you to browse other tabs such as Facebook, Instagram, etc.  before going back to another 25 mins workspace. It’s an excellent app to help you maintain your concentration.

4. Papier

Are you in the habit of taking notes while scrolling through a website? If yes, then Papier is all you need. This extension will allow you to open a blank Google tab where you will be able to write anything. Whatever you jot down will be backed up to Chrome. Working made easy!

5. Grammarly

Grammarly is a great tool for keeping your English under check. Throughout the webpage, no matter where you type, Grammarly will keep you providing suggestions for your spellings, grammar, and punctuations. It’s a great choice for digital writers.

6. Adblock Plus

Adblock is a very popular web tool for blocking ads. It blocks all the ads at the server level and creates blank spaces in their place or simply collapses them into the format of the page. You can either choose to block ads individually or select from a list of ad networks. You can also block ads from only those pages you visit frequently.

7. Chrome Remote Desktop

You must have heard of managing two or more PCs via remote desktop tools but Chrome Remote Desktop is the best for this purpose. This extension allows you to access your computer, other desktops, etc with any device that can run Chrome, even Android and iOS devices. With a good connection, it’s very easy to use and is effective. 

8. Make Your Own

Do you know you can also create your own Chrome app or extension? Yes, the Windows version allows you to create a ‘web page’ shortcut. You can pin these application shortcuts to the Windows Start Menu or taskbar. You just have to open your desired Web page and click the ‘Menu’ button. Then, tap on ‘More tools’ and choose ‘Create a shortcut’. And it’s done. Isn’t this cool?

This is actually not just it. There are a number of more left but these 8 will surely change your experience. Try these out, personalize your Google Chrome, and make your Chrome browser so much better than others.
