Crazy useful plugins take your browser to the next level.
By Chelsea Berler
I love my Google Chrome browser. I refer to it tons of times each day. I couldn’t image that it could get more useful. Chrome already lets you browse faster, search instantly, and type less. But, just drop by the Chrome Web Store to discover tens of thousands of very handy extensions (also called plugins or add-ons) that you can download (mostly for free) and install in virtually seconds.
These extensions are small software programs that can modify and enhance the usefulness of the Chrome browser. It’s easy to super-charge your browser by adding extensions and customize Google Chrome with more features, functionality, and versatility. That means Chrome extensions help you get more done fast.
Here are just seven of my personal favorites:
