This post is not sponsored. I just like the internet.
As of 2014, Google Chrome is now the most popular web browser, having surpassed Internet Explorer for the first time ever.
I’ve been using Chrome almost since it first came out, and I’ve tried out lots of extensions that add functionality to make it even more awesome than it already is. So here is my list of the top 6 favorite Chrome extensions – lovingly curated over the past several years just for you…okay and me too.
#1) Feedly/Feedly Mini: For easy blog reading!
Totally essential to my well-being. I have been reading blogs
since the dawn of time for a long time, and I used to use Google Reader. Much to everyone’s chagrin, Google Reader was phased out in the summer of 2013, so RSS fiends had to find an alternative. I tried a few, and Feedly is my favorite.
Feedly works pretty much exactly like Google Reader, but with a sleeker look and some additional functionality, like the Feedly Mini button. Feedly Mini hovers in the corner of websites while you’re browsing so you can easily subscribe when you find something you like.#2) Couponmate: Quickly find coupons for online purchases!
Couponmate is an extremely helpful automatic coupon-finder extension. When online shopping, simply click on the toolbar icon when you are ready to check out, and it will try all the available coupons to see which one will give you the best deal. No coupon searching required!
#3) Food Count: Automatically calculate the nutrition of recipes!
You’re gonna love this one. When you are browsing recipes, you can click on the Food Count extension icon to calculate the nutrition of any recipe. It mostly gets things right as-is, but if you need to, you can make adjustments to the calculations. GAME CHANGER#4) Pin It Button: Quickly save things to Pinterest!
The Pin It Button is essential for anyone who uses Pinterest. When you see something you want to pin, just click on the Pin It Button and it will ask you which picture from the website you’d like to pin as well as which of your boards to save it to.
#5) MultiLogin: Stay logged in to multiple social media accounts at once!
MultiLogin is helpful if you have more than one social media account you’d like to stay logged into at once. Maybe you have a work Twitter and a personal Twitter, for example. All you have to do is log into one account, then click the MultiLogin icon, which will open a new tab that you can use to log in to the second account. Easy peasy.
#6) Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES): Browse Reddit like a pro!
If you browse Reddit, you need to be using the Reddit Enhancement Suite. It has tons of features, most of which I don’t even use, but here are the best ones:
- You don’t have to click through to see pictures or photo albums. Instead, click the plus sign next to a picture and the picture will appear inline.
- You don’t have to click to get to the next page of content. It automatically loads as you scroll. (Never Ending Reddit)
- You can tag other users so when you see them again, you can remember who they are, i.e. “Guy who loves cheese puffs”.
