Useful Chrome Extensions
I love Chrome for various reasons. It’s comfy. I’ve used it since it came out. I really hated Netscape and Mozilla Firefox. Safari was/is okay. I don’t have it on this laptop, though. Instead, I have Opera. I may, in the future, install Safari, but only because some websites I need access to require the use of Internet Explorer – and Safari passes their stupid IE check. However, there are some extensions I use to really help me with my overall Internet surfing experience, and I figured I’d share them with you. 🙂
- AdBlock – No more annoying ads! Those “Promoted” tweets on Twitter don’t even show up for me! I guess this doesn’t help to share considering I’m going to have one ad on my sidebar soon, but still. I figured I’d share it. ._.
- Lazarus: Form Recovery – I got really tired of Chrome crashing and losing what I’d typed. Or, if my mouse spazzed out on me, that ticked me off as well. Thus, someone mentioned this nifty little extension on a forum-based RPG I was once a part of. It’s very nice. 😉
- Missing E – This is for Tumblr… It lets me have lovely features on Tumblr – including the ability to allow people to answer posts that aren’t questions and reblogging my own posts. :p It feels good to be spoiled. ;] (However, I think Tumblr hates this Missing E thing. I’ve not yet had any issues with it, so… To each their own.)
- Page Snooze – If you come across a page you want to view later, just snooze it.
- PanicButton – Hurry! Close your tabs! But if you don’t want to close your entire browser, just hit the PanicButton! This one’s mostly for just-in-case purposes. For anything, really. It’s quite handy.
- Screen Capture (by Google) – They’ve changed this a lot; after capturing a screenshot, I can no longer easily edit it by adding a blur to it, or some other feature of theirs. However, it captures the whole page of something without me having to CTRL + – it, which is nice.
- Stylish – Tumblr’s blue layout is very boring. I also like to have mine say “tumblah” because I like it to feel cozy.
- TweetDeck – I connect to my Twitter and Facebook profiles from this at once. It’s really easy and convenient for me when I’m in a rush. Lately I haven’t used it, though, since I’ve been on Twitter less. I go through tweet phases. :p
- Web Timer – This one is really just for fun… I like to see what sites I spend the most time on. It’s a great way to track statistics on your Internet usage. For example, I spend an average of 8.7% of my time online on Twitter.
