| by Naina Khedekar
Despite Microsoft’s IE gaining its market share and numerous Mozilla Firefox loyalists, Google’s Chrome enjoys a large share of millions of users. To further enhance your browser experience and increase productivity, the search giant (as we like to call it) has a lengthy list of Chrome extensions. These add-ons are simple to install and make your browsing experience swift. Among the numerous extensions made available by Google, we have listed out our 10 must-have Chrome extensions for you.
As the name suggests, this extension keeps all those annoying ads at bay. This is one of the most, rather the most popular browser extension and is also available for Mozilla Firefox. It claims to not infringe on the user’s privacy and Chrome warns all extensions that modify web pages. It is a community-driven open source project that aims to better the use of Internet by negating irritating ads.
Block them all...
Now, we know Google has added a full fledged Labs feature to upscale the productivity of users. But we just couldn’t sideline this one from our list. Smartr Inbox for Gmail is a smarter way of managing your contacts and relevant details about them in one place. The Gmail Inbox offers all essential contact information, including e-mail history and also updates from social sites like, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Moreover, it does so automatically by finding people. Users can also opt for Pro to further connect contacts across platforms, like Gmail, Android, Outlook and BlackBerry.
This extension is an excellent way to tackle the numerous tabs that some people often tend to open at a time. Numerous tabs sometimes even make it difficult to see the favicon on the tab and here’s when the TooManyTabs extension comes handy. It brings a 22’s eye view of all the tabs and lets you preview the content of each tab. It’s a nice way to make instant tab searches.
If too much to handle
Awesome Screenshot is simply awesome at capturing the screenshots of a page or a particular portion, and then also lets you annotate it. You can highlight content with circles, rectangles, arrows, lines and even add text, to indicate what you are trying to say. It supports .png format and also horizontal scrolling. You can save and share these images.
Points out clearly
Here’s yet another Chrome extension, which is a Gmail app to support offline access. Though in beta, this extension seems quite handy. Gmail Offline automatically synchronizes messages and queues them into action any time Chrome is running or an Internet connection is available.
