Google Chrome is much more than just a browser and that’s how it became the web’s favorite internet browser. And it was perhaps the first cloud-integrated web browser.
That is, everything you do inside Google Chrome was automatically synced across all your computers (and today mobile devices as well).
And there are literally hundreds of thousands of Google Chrome extensions that can make this super-browser even more powerful.
The good thing is, there must be an extension to make Chrome work the way you want. For instance, I often end up accidentally close a pinned tab. So, I can install an extension called Lock Tab to prevent it (I’m not using it though).
The only problem with Chrome is that… it’s so resource hungry that it eats up your computer’s memory (RAM) in a big way. So make sure that you don’t overload your browser with a ton of add-ons or extensions.
It will not only slow down your computer but also make it a mess as most of the Chrome extensions can access your browsing history (or much more). So it’s always a good idea to install only the trusted ones.
Today, I have sorted some of the best Google Chrome extensions and apparently they are also my personal favorites.
13 Google Chrome Extensions I Can’t Live Without
Here’s a quick reminder. It’s really impossible to come up with a definite list of Google Chrome extensions as its selection depends upon a person and his/her nature of work.
For instance, if you are a gamer or a graphic designer then you may not find much helpful extensions. But if you are a blogger or even a writer then you would find at least few of them helpful.
That’s why this is a list of my favorite extensions. And I have divided the list into two: the first 13 are the ones that I can’t live without and it’s enabled all the time. And the next 13 are the ones that I activate on-demand — that is, when I want to do something with it.
