Extensions are small programs that add extra functionality to a web browser. There are thousands of extensions available for Chrome which can perform a variety of functions such as automatically finding shopping coupons to making your computer run faster.
Here are the top 5 Chrome extension that we think everyone should have.
1. The Great Suspender
The Great Suspender is an extension the every Chrome user should have. As with any web browser, Chrome tends to take a lot of the memory space on a computer which leads to slower performance and lower battery life. Luckily this magical extension curtails the problem by pausing unused tabs after a user-specified amount of time, resulting in the lower memory usage and battery drain.
More and more people are now using GIFs which have become as popular as emojis. However, finding the right GIF at the right time isn’t that easy and would require searching for it over the internet.
