There are so many google chrome extensions available out there to enhance your browsing experience, to make you more productive. You might also be using some of them. This list has some more useful extensions you might not be using but you should.
Note- These might not be the best chrome extensions (that’s why I just said “useful”). Also, I am no arbitrator to decide which the best are ;-). There may be better extensions than the following ones. These are just some of the extensions I like and wish to share with you all.
Momentum replaces chrome’s default New Tab page with a personalized dashboard which has a beautiful picture, a daily inspirational quote, the time and weather, a to-do list, your primary focus for the day, to do list, a personalized greeting, quick links to your favourite websites and a search bar.
Awesome! Isn’t it?
This is very useful while reading online. Don’t know the meaning of any word? Just double-click it and voila! No need to copy it and search on google, Google has made it a lot simpler for you!
You get the meaning in a bubble which pops-up when you double-click any word. You can even check the pronunciation and read more about the word by clicking the “more” button in the bottom-right corner of the bubble.
This one is my favourite and might even become yours if you are like me who struggles while writing! Grammarly corrects all your spelling mistakes, grammar, punctuation, helps you with the structure and style of your sentences. It works on Facebook, Gmail, almost everywhere you write! The best thing? ITS FREE!
P.S- They also have a premium version which gives you some additional features to improve your writing skills.
Save anything you find useful, interesting on the web to pocket and view it later. It’s not that easy to find something the next time if you do not save it! You can even install the app on your phone, tablet, chrome and access the things you saved whenever you want.

7. Adblock Plus
I know this is unfair but sometimes you come across some websites which have just way too many annoying advertisements, pop-ups, etc. It also prevents malware and tracking!
So do try this out, but not on this site! 😛
Do you keep scrolling your Facebook feed for hours? Or playing games on it? You promise yourself every day that you will be more productive but end up just liking everyone’s DP’s?
StayFocusd can block any such sites that waste your time so that you can be more productive! You can set the maximum time you wish to browse those sites after which they will be blocked for the day.
Tip – You can even try News Feed Eradicator extension. It just blocks your Facebook news feed and allows you to post status updates.
Working on a secret project? Planning a surprise for someone? What if you get unwanted visitors suddenly? (or the person you are planning the surprise for? 😛 )
PanicButton can come in handy in such situations. It hides all your open tabs in one click and you can get them back later by clicking on it again.
Pushbullet is a very useful extension through which you can send (push) any text, link, map, files, etc to your phone from PC and vice versa. You can also send and receive SMS from your desktop itself. You can add multiple devices, friends, share links with them. You also receive all of your phone’s notifications on your computer including phone calls! What can be more awesome than this?
