28 Must Have Google Chrome Extensions [Pic]

Must have Google Chrome Extensions.

To Remove/Disable Extensions: chrome://extensions/

Adblock – Ad-free browsing! Even YouTube video ads stop. Remember that if you install AdBlock, always unblock the sites you want to support. Ads pay people especially for youtubers and bloggers.

Hover Free – Display a full size image when you hover over a thumbnail. If it”s an album, use left/right arrow keys to navigate through albums.No more messing with new image tabs or loading new pages. Large images are automatically resized to fit your screen. Extremely usefully for a quick view from the imgur gallery, highly recommended.

StayFoused – Limit the time you can spend on time-wasting websites. It is a godsend for users who fritter away their time instead of working/studying.

Zenmate – Great for non-U.S. residents. Access websites blocked or censored in your country, company or school.

Timestats – You will be surprised how much time you spent on particular web pages.

Session buddy – View and save the state of all open browser tabs in the current or past browser sessions.

Magic Actions for YouTube – Full cinematic experience for YouTubers. The options are very versatile so make sure to set it up to your preference!

FastestFox for Chrome – Save time and enhance your productivity! Get quick definitions, auto-load next pages, search faster, and more.

Speed dial 2 – It is ultimate replacement of new tab page with fast access to your most visited pages, bookmarks and browsing history.

Tin Eye – Similar to Google Image search engine, find out if OP is reposting a picture so that you can post repost gifs or tell on OP!

Ghostery – Protect your privacy, see who”s tracking your web browsing

Panic Button – Hide all your tabs at once with one single button and restore them later. Psst! Incognito mode (Ctrl+Shift+N) maybe a better option.

XKit – Is a set of tools for Tumblr, designed to make blogging much easier and fun.

Imgur Uploader – Upload images & .gifs to Imgur with two clicks of the mouse.

Google Dictionary – Double-click words to have Google Dictionary define them for you.

LastPass – LastPass is a password manager and form filler.

Cloud to Butt Plus – Replaces the text “the cloud” with “my butt”, as well as “cloud” with “butt” in certain contexts because why not?

Readability – Reduce articles/pages to a clean, easy-to-read interface.

Facebook for chrome – An incredibly easy access to your Facebook news, notifications, and friends right from your Chrome toolbar

InvisibleHand – Automatically get the lowest price on whatever youre buying.

GIF Scrubber – GIF Scrubber adds movie player like controls to animated

GIFs allowing you to control the speed of animation and you use the scrubber to go back and forth.

Stylish – With Stylish, you can completely customize the look of your favorite websites.

Disconnect – Disconnect will automatically block advertising companies, analytics services and search engines from tracking you online. Theres no configuration required and as soon as you install the add-on, the tracking is suspended.

Honey – Automatically save money by effortlessly getting the best coupons delivered to you on 1,000s of stores.

Awesome Screenshot – Easily capture the whole page or any portion, annotate screenshot, blur sensitive info, one-click upload to share.

nCage – Replaces all images on all pages to Nicolas Cage. Hilarity ensues.

ChangeColors -ChangeColors replaces a page”s styling (colors, fonts, etc.) according to the user”s preferences. Makes your Eyes happy!

Tip: It automatically dims your screen during night time to reduce strain on your eyes; It switches back to full brightness on sunrise. Painful at first but it gets better I promise.

    Nice, must put my Chrome in working order now that it has all my FireFox addons i need (in order of importance: lastpass, ghostery, adblocker).

    One to add thou which is the most important one; i can`t see `HTTPS everywhere` anywhere on the list. Should be #1. If you haven`t installed it, do it NOW! It fixes the underlying default priority on every browser that makes the browser always use HTTP over HTTPS. `Encrypt all traffic if possible` ie HTTPS over HTTP is the correct way to do it but for "some" reason, all US based products tend to use HTTP default... Very few websites offer it, only those where it counts. For ex, IAB traffic is all plaintext.. It does not need to be, that `S` in HTTPS does not take any server time nor does it affect performance, it`s just laziness to not offer that option...


    INSTALL `HTTPS EVERYWHERE` to all your browsers immediately.

    When they have one for case-sensitive page search, give me a call. Till then, it`s worthless.

    Chrome for android sucks. I wouldn`t be able to view IAB, youtube or any other video sites if I was on chrome.

    It fixes the underlying default priority on every browser that makes the browser always use HTTP over HTTPS.

    According to its own FAQ, that isn`t what it does. It uses a whitelist to switch to HTTPS only for some pages on some sites, *not* as a default.

    So it`s actually "https for pages on this whitelist", not "https everywhere".

    Chrome bugs me. The new UI for Firefox is a copy of the UI for Chrome. So now I have to either use an UI for a browser I don`t want or completely customise Firefox to stop it looking like a Chrome wannabee.
