Favourite Chrome Extensions?

What are some of your favourite Chrome extensions? I’ve been rocking with pretty much the same set of stuff for a few years now - and I’m worried I might be missing out on some cool things.

I have some pretty obvious ones like 1Password extension, Hangouts notifier, Adblock Plus… But i’m sure i must be missing out on something.

Anyone using anything cool?

Grammarly since I have to use it with law course.
Ad block and that’s about it.
:thinking: Is there anything worth getting extra?

Four useful, and well implemented, if not particularly exciting extensions I have found over the years:

An extension for reading aloud that actually works:

An extension for sorting bookmarks and folders

An extension for refreshing tabs at chosen periods

An extension for moving between my far too many open tabs

Screen capture extension that you can then annotate, has over 2 million downloads.

Even does video now!

I find Video Speed Controller really useful. It lets you speed up or slow down any video you view online.

If you happen to like dark mode, then dark reader is a great extension

Postman and Postman Interceptor. Great for when you’re working with API calls on a webpage, runs from your already logged in context. But tbf I really like the Firefox as well, the new version is really fast - doesn’t feel as bloated as it did.

Does anyone pay the fee for Grammerly? I have often wondered what was so “critical” about my writing style :slight_smile:

Ublock origin and ublock origin extra are my favourite. Amazing extensions for ad blocking.

Edit; Also 1Password, great password manager.

I use a few interesting ones that haven’t been mentioned yet:

  • Ghostery / Privacy Badger - ad blockers with a focus on privacy and blocking trackers
  • HTTPS Everywhere - force supported websites to use HTTPS rather than HTTP
  • OneTab / Tabs Outliner - make it easier to deal with far too many open tabs

Don’t most well made sites force HTTPS via .htaccess anyway?

Seems odd to me that this is still a thing :grinning:

Most sites do use and enforce HTTPS, yes. But as long as there are still some left that don’t I’d rather use the extension than not.
