List of the Best Chrome Extensions

heikkinen

If you aren’t already familiar with Chrome, it’s a web browser developed by Google. It’s available for pretty much every hardware device: iOS, Android, Windows, OSX, and Linux. Desktop versions of Chrome support a feature known as “extensions”. These add extra features or customizations to Chrome. A few weeks ago, I wrote an article highlighting some of my favorite Android apps. In today’s post, I am following that familiar format by pointing out some of the best Chrome Extensions available.

Buffer is the best way to share great content to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn from anywhere on the web, with just one click.
