If you need to take a quick screenshot of something in a Chrome tab, this is the extension for you. Just press the "Take a screenshot" button and a new tab open where you select what you want to share or save. If it’s a picture, you can even ask Google to search for similar photos. Before sharing or saving, it's also possible to draw on the screenshot and highlight whatever you want to point out to the person on the receiving end.
Momentum presents itself every time you open a new tab in Chrome. It gives you the time, date, weather and a few other things, but most importantly your ‘to do’ list. Meetings go into your calendar, but what about all those big and small tasks that don't belong at a specific time? It’s easy to see what you have to focus on, and just as easy to add new ‘to do’ items. When you finish a task, remove it, and on you go to the next one.
Quite a few websites present you with an enormous amount of information that can make it difficult to focus on the text. Text Mode is a straightforward extension that, when used, removes everything but the text itself, and also turns everything black and white. The extension is perfect if you need to process a lot of information in a short time.
All those passwords... All those logins. It’s impossible to remember all of them unless you use the same password each time and as we all know, that is definitely not recommended. LastPass is a service that safely stores your passwords and usernames in a "vault", making them easily accessible to you and you alone.
Is the company you work for using more than one communication programme like Skype, Slack or WhatsApp? All-in-One Messenger takes all of those programmes and puts them into one window, meaning that you don't need to jump between them. It’s a great timesaver!
Grammarly is perfect for people who have to write in English. This extension checks both your spelling and grammar, making sure that what you communicate is easy to read and has a professional look. It allows you up to 400 checks per month free.
Need to figure out what kind of traffic a website has had over the last six months? The SimilarWeb extension does exactly that, and at the same time presents you with other data such as what countries the visitors are from and if they came via social media, search engines or links. It will never be 100% accurate, but it will give you a good idea about whether you should, for example, cooperate with a particular influencer.
