10 Useful Google Chrome Extensions
There is no denying it, Google Chrome is making huge strides in the browsers wars and its already claiming its fair share of users, up to December 2009 Chrome was the third most popular browser with 4.63% of worldwide users.
There are Chrome extensions appearing all over the web lately, some aren’t fantastic whilst some have true potential. A few people are comparing the plugins to similar ones on Firefox and some haven’t quiet matched up, but in browser years Chrome is still a baby and has the resources and userbase to mature.
That being said, here are 10 useful extensions for Google Chrome, each extension has a brief description below.
Whilst technically not a plugin, it will enable you to block ads whilst using Chrome.
Splits your browser into two panels and allows you to browse two sites at the same time.
Eye dropper tool that will extract colours from any webpage.
Displays unread messages from Gmail and allows previews as well as read, delete, archive and mark as spam options.
This Windows only addon allows you to display web pages using Internet Explorer in a Chrome tab, you never have to leave Chrome again!
Developers tools that allows you to reload CSS without full page reloads, disable images and CSS, pick colours, use rulers and validate using W3C.
Checks the Google Pagerank and Alexa Rank on each page you browse.
