Google Chrome is one of the most popular internet browsers in the world. It is widely used and regularly updated with interesting (sometimes annoying) features.
But, what makes Chrome truly unique is its humongous set of extensions, which unlock the real power of the browser.
So, here we are, looking at the best Chrome extensions for productivity.
Workaholics tend to keep multiple tabs open, but that consumes unnecessary processing power, leading to lags.
To prevent this, you should install 'The Great Suspender', which automatically suspends tabs not being used after a certain time.
Also, you can use 'OneTab' to combine multiple tabs into a single tab list or 'Clutter Free' to keep duplicate tabs from being opened.
Also, when multiple tabs are already running, it can be difficult to open another one to check basic services like Gmail.
To avoid this, we'd recommend using Checker Plus and WikiWand.
The former lets you check Gmail and Google Drive right from the toolbar of the opened tab, while the latter captures quick topic summary from Wikipedia.
For an immersive experience of content, install 'Just Read'. It removes unnecessary elements (ads, popups, comments, videos) and presents text in a clean, readable manner.
You can also use 'Pocket' to save good stories and 'NewsGuard' to avoid content from unreliable publishers.
And if you want to enhance your writing, and reduce grammatical mistakes, go for 'Grammarly'.
In case you waste a lot of time on Facebook, try the 'News Feed Eradicator for Facebook'.
As the name suggests, it replaces the endless news feed with a motivational quote, ending your FOMO in a matter of seconds.
Also, you can use 'StayFocused' to set time limits for sites you access a lot or 'PushBullet' to deal with notifications without touching your phone.
