Google Chrome Extensions

Last updated on May 9, 2021

Recommended Google Chrome Extensions,

Google Chrome is a cross-platform web browser developed by Google. It was first released in 2008 for Microsoft Windows and was later ported to Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android. The browser is also the main component of Chrome OS.

What are Extensions?

Extensions are small software programs that customize the browsing experience. They enable users to tailor Google Chrome functionality and behavior to individual needs or preferences. They are built on web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

My recommended Google Chrome Extensions

The following are my favorite Google Chrome extensions — these can also be used in the Opera and Brave web browsers.

  • uBlock Origin (link)
    A resource efficient ad-blocker: uBlock Origin is easy on memory and CPU footprint, and yet can load and enforce thousands more filters than other popular blockers out there. No one should be surfing the internet without an ad-blocker.
  • Privacy Badger (link)
    Privacy Badger automatically learns to block invisible trackers. Instead of keeping lists of what to block, Privacy Badger learns by watching which domains appear to be tracking you as you browse the Web. Privacy Badger was created by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).
  • Popup Blocker (strict) (link)
    Popup Blocker (strict) is a lightweight extension to prevent websites from opening popups. The extension pauses any window opening requests that may happen on a website. You can accept or deny a request, plus you can mark certain requests as trusted (for frequently visited websites).
  • SuperSorter (link)
    With one click, SuperSorter will sort your bookmarks into alphabetical order. It can also be setup to delete empty folders, delete duplicate bookmarks in the same folder and merge neighboring folders with the same name. SuperSorter can also sort bookmarks automatically every few minutes.
