If you are like us, you probably spend a large percentage of the day behind a computer screen, working on documents, replying to emails, and browsing online.
Beyond choosing a favourite browser however, chances are you have never really explored all of the add-ons available to make your browsing experience easier.
That’s why we took a look at the 10 best add-ons available for Google’s Chrome browser.
Check out the best add-ons and extensions for Chrome below:
Momentum replaces the new tab page with a personal dashboard featuring a to-do list, weather, and inspiration.
“New Tab page gives you a moment of calm and inspires you to be more productive. Set a daily focus, track your to dos, and get inspired with a daily photo and quote. Eliminate distractions and beat procrastination with a reminder of your focus for the day on every new tab load.”
See all of your tasks from 40+ other services on Chrome’s new tab page. Services include Asana, Basecamp, GitHub, Gmail, OmniFocus, Trello, Zendesk and more.
Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.
This can also result in a decrease of memory usage by over 95%.
Play your own local videos on your Chromecast or Android TV directly from your computer (PC, Mac, Linux).
Highlight or right-click on a section of text and click on Translate icon next to it to translate it to your language. Or, to translate the entire page you’re visiting, click the translate icon on the browser toolbar.
PanicButton makes it easier for you to hide all of your tabs at once just by clicking on a button. They are then saved as bookmarks in a separate folder.
Afterwards, the PanicButton turns green and shows you how many tabs are currently hidden.

Save directly from your browser or from apps like Twitter, Flipboard, Pulse and Zite.

Feedly is the world’s most popular RSS and blog reader with more than 15 millions users. It is RSS re-invented.
Never lose anything you type into a web form again!
Lazarus securely auto-saves all forms as you type, so after a crash, server timeout, or whatever, you can go back to the form, right click, “recover form”, and breathe a sigh of relief.
