7 Best Google Chrome Extensions You Should Know About
Welcome to Nirkh.com, One of the best things about using Google Chrome as your browser is that there are so many cool extensions that you can get for it and Google itself actually makes a lot of extensions that a lot of people don’t even know about, So I’m going to show you 7 Best Google Chrome Extensions You Should Know About, These are all made directly by Google themselves.
Chrome Remote Desktop Extension
First we have the chrome remote desktop extension and by the name of it you can probably figure out what it’s for, it allows you to connect remotely to other computers over the Internet securely right through Chrome. This would be useful for a couple reasons including accessing your own computer remotely or if someone needs help with their computer you can give them support directly. This is not a new idea obviously there are programs like TeamViewer and Microsoft’s remote desktop software. I think this is great because it’s so easy It’s built right into Chrome that everyone’s familiar with.
Data Saver Extension
It is a neat extension if you are concerned at all about bandwidth caps from your ISP or if you have pretty slow internet that usually takes a while to load websites, What it does is uses Google servers to optimize and compress websites before it’s delivered to your browser. So each website will take up less data than normal and you can see how much data you’re actually saving over time, You can also use it on the mobile version of Chrome as well, Which is especially useful because most cell phone providers as you know unfortunately have very low bandwidth caps we all hate it, But this could be a way to help with it, That it won’t compress site all the time like for example when the connection is encrypted because in that case, Google can’t see any of the data being sent to obviously and that really is good. you don’t want anyone being able to see what you’re doing if it’s encrypted so this is a really great way to see how much data you’re using from different sites and you can actually reduce it in the process.
Personal Blocklist which honestly I was so happy about when I found this one, It’s so nice the idea is very simple it allows you to block certain websites from appearing in your Google search results, When you do a search you’ll now see a button next to each result or below, It rather that blocks that URL in the future if you click on it so this is really great for example if I’m searching for something in particular and half the results are from some spammy website, That has nothing to do with what I’m looking for you know exactly the type of site I’m talking about you just block it and now it doesn’t show up anymore. So I can just block that site makes it much easier to find what I’m looking for exactly and this is definitely one of the most practical extensions.
Google dictionary and isn’t something that’s built directly into Google Chrome, like the name suggests it makes it very easy to look up words and phrases that you’re looking at on a website just by highlighting them, So if you’re on any website how it works is you just double-click on any word and it will show you the definition of whatever you highlight, It as a little pop-up or if it’s a phrase you can actually highlight it and then click the extension icon in the top and then you can also click on the extension icon without highlighting anything and type in something you want to look up, So it doesn’t have to be highlighted it can be anything. I think this is way easier than what I used to do which was highlight a word right-click it hit search and then it would bring up a whole separate results page with the definition on it. It’s just so much more convenient with this extension you just double click it way easier.
This one is kind of interesting I guess it’s called Google tone and how it works is you would install this extension on your computer and other computers around you and then this extension will broadcast a tone or a set of tones to the other computers and allows you to send any URLs encoded in that sound to those computers that are listening. So if you’re at an office meeting or hanging out with friends and you want to share a link you basically send it through the speakers by clicking this tone button and the microphones on the other computers will pick it up wirelessly and show whatever URL you wanted to send. So this is definitely an unusual one might not be useful all the time but I think if you can get it to work well without in a noisy environment I think it would be cool in some situations but I don’t know if a lot of people want to keep their microphones all the time for privacy concerns.
Image extension its very easy to search Google for images that you see on any site, Google has already had this feature for a while where you can go on Google Image Search and either upload a picture or post a link to a file and it will do a search based on the image itself. Not a query or a text input and also built into Chrome actually is this option if you right-click and hit search for Google images but what this extension does is adds just a little bit more functionality, So it might not be super useful but you might want it and one of the things that do it makes a little search button appear at the bottom right of any image you’re looking at. So if you’re on a website and you want to find similar images you just click on this little icon and it’ll automatically search from there you don’t have to do any extra clicks or go to Google or anything like that, So this one might be a little bit redundant but could still be useful and I do believe there is a Firefox extension so that might be even more useful because it might not be built in Google image search like chrome is so if you have Firefox at least I would check it out on there.
Google Similar Pages
Google similar pages how this extension works is when you’re on any website you can click on the extension button, It will show you a list of websites it thinks are similar to the page you’re on, So for example if you’re on a website talking about photography if you click on it it will show you other popular websites related to photography or the topic at hand that you might like I think this is great whether you’re just being bored or doing some actual research and need to find more information about something it’s a really simple idea and could be very useful so you could just keep going on forever, From related site to related site definitely worth checking out I think it’s fun so I think that’s it those are the extensions from Google that I thought were cool and they do have many more that you can see on the Chrome Web Store if you just look at the ones made by Google themselves but I do think these are the best and the most interesting worth mentioning.
