Apps for just smartphones wasn’t enough, so Google introduced Chrome Web store for Google Chrome. You can find Hundreds of apps in the store, which you can use online or some even offline. Apps aren’t the only things found in the Chrome Web store, you can find many extensions in it. In this posts I will be walking you through the Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions that I know of. So, let’s jump right in…
Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions
1. Adblock Plus:
Are you sick and tired of Ads trying to worsen your experience to surf the internet smoothly, quickly and without any bugs? Then AdBlock Plus would be the #1 extension I recommend to you. This sweet extension when enabled, blocks all the ads from Google Chrome..Heck, even from YouTube. AdBlock Plus blocks the Ads that stream on YouTube videos right before the original video starts playing. That way, you don’t have to wait 5 seconds to skip the Ad, or how much ever long the Ad is to watch the videos you want to have a good time. With all the potential it has, it did deserve to be in my Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions list.
2. Google Cast:
This extension comes really handy if you are a Chromecast User. Originally, Chromecast just allows to play YouTube videos, stream Netflix, watch HBO original series, listen to Pandora and Google Play Music, Hulu, etc. but Google Cast allows you to cast the page you are on your laptop directly to your TV. It’s basically like a Wireless HDMI cable for laptops. For example, If you are reading something important and you want it on the big screen.. Google Cast will help you do that by transferring your Google Chrome page directly to the TV your Chromecast has joined into… or If you want to watch a video but Chromecast doesn’t support the video, Google Cast will. So, do the right thing and download it right away. I want to conclude with saying that this extension does what a HDMI cord can do without any wires just like Apple TV but it is for sure, that factor cemented its place in my Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions list.
With one click on the lamp button, the page will be fading to dark, and will automatically focus on the video. If you click again the page will return back to normal. Turn Off The Light kind of gives the feel of being in a theater. The whole screen will turn dark except for the video you are watching. If you the kind of person who doesn’t like to watch videos in full screen, this extension should be really helpful to make your experience better.
There is no doubt that this extension deserves a place in my Top 5 Google Chrome Extensions. With this extension you search hands free just like in your mobile devices.
