Google Chrome is my default browser for all of my devices, including my MacBook Air, Chromebook, and Galaxy Note 5, for several reasons. I absolutely love that I can retrieve bookmarks, tabs, and even my browsing history for any of these devices anywhere. It’s definitely the first app I install on any new device, and one that I use every single day.
Another reason why I love using Google Chrome, specifically on my MacBook Air, is the fact that I can add extensions to my browser. The options are endless -- from add-ons that let me quickly check the number of new emails to instant coupon finders, extensions help make sure that you’re being the most productive while surfing the Web. You can find a full list of extensions on the Chrome Web Store, and below are a few extensions that I use every day.
Evernote Web Clipper: Evernote is my go-to app across all of my devices for keeping my personal notes in one place. The Evernote Web Clipper is an extension that lets you “clip” a page that you are viewing and add it to your Evernote notebook. Whether it’s a new recipe you want to try or a fashion tip, you can instantly save pages, and access them on any other device via your Evernote account.
Honey: I love online shopping, especially if it involves flash sales and discounts. Honey is an extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes when you shop online. All you have to do is click on the Honey button during checkout, and the app will automatically apply coupon codes to your shopping cart.
Grammarly: Everyone needs a good spell checker, and Grammarly is a tool that automatically checks your spelling and grammar as you type in your Chrome browser. It catches even the tiniest of mistakes, and helps me make sure that my tweets, Facebook posts, and emails are error-free. Unfortunately it does not support Google Drive yet, but I look forward to when that feature will be added on!
Giphy for Chrome: At Cutline, we are huge lovers of funny and cute GIFs, especially if they involve puppies! This extension lets you easily add a GIF to any email, blog posts, tweets, or anywhere else on the Web.
Google Cast: If you use a Chromecast at home, this is a must-download extension Google Cast lets you cast any of your tabs in your Chrome browser to your TV. It’s specifically handy when streaming videos or music from sites that are not supported by Chromecast.
Do you have a Chrome extension that you love? I’d love to hear new suggestions or tips!
