What Are Chrome Extensions?
Chrome extensions are installable programs that can be used to enhance the functionality of the browser or make it more convenient for an individual user to interact. As of the date of writing this article, there exist thousands of extensions, but not all of them are good for you. Here’s a list of some of the best chrome extensions you should try out.
Who ever knew that spelling errors could be thoroughly eliminated? We have all come across articles on famous websites with several typos; that’s human. But trust me, you could perform 200% better if you install Grammarly.
The extension works by recognizing what you’re typing and judging your tone, spelling, and if your words are patterned properly. If you pay for the premium version, you get a lot more features like other ways you can express your message.
This chrome extension does exactly what it describes itself as. Say bye-bye to unnecessary pop-up adverts all over the place. Adverts make money for the sites that host them, but sometimes they actually get in and stop you from doing what you’re trying to do.
That’s the part you install this monster and enjoy a freemium life!
This particular extension is going to offer you dark mode for all websites you can think about.
The reason Dark Mode / Night Reader stands out roots in the fact that it provides several shades of dark mode. This is not just cool, because it literally solves the possibility of ruining images or other content on a site.
Are you a YouTube creator? Or you just want to know the background stats of your favorite creators. vidIQ Vision For YouTube is the best extension to use to monitor your YouTube channel and to understand the SEO of several topics on YouTube.
The free version alone will help you get the YouTube growth job done. But if you pay for the premium version, you’re in for some deep YouTube secret hacks at your disposal.
While we’re boasting about Chrome, the Opera browser happens to be living in a world of its own. When you install Chameleon to Chrome, you’ll be able to install any extensions originally designed for Opera Browser.
I have personally used this extension to install Save From Net extension which will allow you to download YouTube videos directly to your computer.
Gone are the days when you had to have your phone online in order to use WhatsApp on another device.
This extension will bring your WhatsApp experience to your desktop. You get to reply to all those urgent messages in one place.
Install it and use the Meta service in a whole different lifestyle.
Tired of forgetting your password? Say no more! This extension will automatically store and remember all passwords you give access to. When you’re prompted to type a password, LastPass will give you an autofill option.
8. Extension Manager
It’d have been unfair to give you 15 extension suggestions minus a manager. Use this tool, to organize your extensions such that they don’t fill up half of the screen.
9. Print Friendly and PDF
We so often land on really useful information on the internet and we want to save it. However, you are not comfortable with printing work with ads on it. This extension will help you print ad-free content and you can as well reorganize the clutter.
This useful extension can perfectly help you create step-by-step instructions while following your keystrokes. It can be very useful when you are guiding co-workers to do something online for example maximizing a WordPress plugin.
11. Avast Online Security
This is a “web reputation” plugin. The extension will help you find out whether the website you’re visiting is legitimate or dangerous. You are also able to rate the websites you visit such that other people can get guidance too.
This plugin will help you to quickly save images to your Pinterest boards without navigation to anywhere else. The extension allows you to save multiple pins at a go as well because it automatically detects images that can be saved.
This extension will help you know how hashtags are trending on Twitter. While you write a post in twitter, the extension will show you how your hashtags are performing with colors. Green means your hashtag will be seen now, while blue means the hashtag will help your content be seen over time. Gray means your hashtag has a low trend while red means the hashtag is too popular and your content will get lost in the crowd.
14. App For Instagram
This extension will allow you to monitor notifications on your Instagram account straight from your PC. You can also monitor other people’s posts without leaving your PC. You just have to log in to your account once and enjoy.
15. Social Analyzer
This chrome extension is excellent for bloggers and people who love following trends. This is a social media monitoring tool that allows you to keep up with trending posts in one of your target markets or industries. This tool can help you drastically improve your social media marketing and rankings.
