Google Chrome is the world’s most popular browser. It’s free, offers secure browsing, and is highly customizable. Today we will share with you some of our favorite Chrome extensions to heighten your browsing experience. All of the Chrome extensions mentioned below are free and work on both Mac and Windows.
AdBlock is one of the best Chrome extensions that is a must-have while browsing the internet. It blocks disruptive ads from ruining your browsing experience and also saves your bandwidth for those annoying video ads. It’s also intelligent enough to allow small non-intrusive ads so that you still support the websites you visit. It works exceptionally well on Youtube, where the double un-skippable ads are now more common than ever. Make sure to disable it on your favorite pages as ads generally give revenue to the youtube channel or website you are on. So disabling it on these pages supports their creators directly.
Zoom Meetings Page Auto Closer
Zoom is part of our everyday lives at this point because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Usually, when you click on a zoom link, it opens a tab on your browser first, then through that tab, you can access the meeting. If you join a lot of meetings per day, these tabs can accumulate, and over time it becomes annoying to go over them and close them one by one. This neat extension automatically closes each Zoom tab after about 10 seconds, about the same time you need to click the link and join the meeting.
Who doesn’t like promotions on online purchases? Honey is an extension that works seamlessly in the background and automatically pops up when it finds a discount code before you checkout from an online shopping page. It allows you to follow certain websites to get notified once a discount is available on them. It’s simple, saves money, and is free of charge.
Grammarly is an extension that corrects whatever grammar mistakes you have in your writings. It is beneficial for content creators or students, as it ensures that whatever they write is free from language mistakes. Their paid version offers you style recommendations and suggestions to shape your writing tone accordingly, based on the target audience.
We all know how important it is to have strong passwords. The problem is memorizing unique passwords containing symbols, numbers, and letters for multiple accounts used daily. This is where LastPass comes in. LastPass automatically generates a new strong password for any newly created account and saves it for you, so you don’t have to remember it. The great thing about LastPass is that it follows you even on your mobile devices. We always recommend that you maintain secure and strong passwords and never share them with anyone.
Momentum replaces the new tab page with a customizable dashboard that has tons of integrations. It provides you with a new daily image accompanied by a motivational quote to help you beat procrastination. It supports many widgets such as weather, to-do list, reminders, and more — a brilliant way to start your browsing session.
