10 Best Сhrome Extensions For Everyday Work

Browser extensions help save time by automating the user’s daily tasks. Most useful programs and applications have extensions in Chrome, Firefox and other browsers. They increase the speed of data processing and allow the user to perform fewer actions.

Extensions or plugins allow you to improve your browsing experience on your favorite sites and pages in the browser by providing more features, such as blocking ads, changing the font or page color, saving passwords, and more.

Developers are constantly adding new features that allow you to extend the functionality of the browser — that’s why they are called extensions.

This is just a small list of popular and convenient plugins that make working on the Internet very easy. Virtually any service today develops its own extension for Сhrome — more and more users are trying to optimize their work and completely switch to browser-based solutions.

I’m sure you knew about many of these services and even used them, but in these times of remote work and constantly online, it’s not superfluous to remind once again about useful services that simplify the work.

Some good extensions on here. I would switch Ad Block for uBlock Origin
though because Ad Block has some privacy issues now.
