Google Chrome is an awesome browser just by itself, but there are lots of extensions out there that can make it even better. They can even make some basic day to day tasks better. We have covered many extensions for Chrome to get the better out of the browser. Here is a list of 5 different extensions that will make you more efficient in your daily browser usage.
Most of the time, your mouse only has a few buttons, so you can only have just a few things mapped to the buttons. Smooth Gesture for Google Chrome is a mouse gestures extension that allows you to trigger actions like opening a new background tab, opening your homepage and several other predefined options. All you have to do is follow the simple gesture instructions like clicking left or right and moving left or right.
One of the great things about this extension is that you can modify the gestures to fit your needs. Once you get everything set up, you’ll be browsing around at a much faster rate.
Linkclump is similar to Opera’s snap link, but it has a few added features. Using it, we can open several links at once by dragging a selection box around the links you want to open. You could also bookmark these links or copy them to the clipboard.
You can also set a delay time between the openings of new tabs if you prefer to not load them all at once.
The ChromeVis extension magnifies any selected text on a webpage. This can help prevent a little eye strain that can develop after a long day of reading articles online.
AppJump is an app launcher and organizer for Chrome. This extension helps you quickly launch your Chrome web apps by organizing them into categories. You now don’t need to open a new tab to launch an app any more, just head up to the AppJump icon next to the Address Bar.
Chrome does have a built in form filler feature, but it’s fairly basic. Autofill for Chrome fills the gaps of the default form-fill feature. It lets you create profiles for specific pages that allow you to only fill in certain details or prevent certain pages from using auto fill at all.
