Tech tips: Chrome Extensions that you need

Posted In Browser, Internet - By Techtiplib on Tuesday, October 30th, 2012 With No Comments »

I love Google Chrome and I use any time when I turn on my PC. One of the reasons I love Chrome that I can find lot of extensions at Chrome Web Store for my job. Such as extension for Gmail, dictionary extensions to learning English.

In this article I just mention about some extentions that helpful for me and maybe for you :mrgreen: !

1. Drag and Drop Search

Drag & Drop Search is an intuitive and innovative approach to search. No longer do you have to scan through an entire list search engine just to find the one you want. You can even search using the correct Search Engine without looking at your screen!

2. KeyRocket for Gmail

KeyRocket for Gmail™ is the fastest way to learn keyboard shortcuts for Gmail™ and Google Apps™ email accounts. It recommends keyboard shortcuts while your work where it matters. KeyRocket informs you, via a subtle notification, when you could have used a keyboard shortcut instead of a series of mouse clicks. 

3. HTTPS Everywhere

This is an port of the popular HTTPS Everywhere extension for Firefox, created by EFF and the Tor Project. It automatically switches thousands of sites from insecure “https” to secure “https”. It will protect you against many forms of surveillance and account hijacking, and some forms of censorship.

HTTPS Everywhere for Chrome is currently alpha-quality, and causes rendering bugs on some sites. You can always disable it for those sites by using the HTTPS Everywhere icon in the Address Bar. Also watch for a “shield” button in the address bar, which means that Chrome blocked insecure portions of the page. Sometimes pages will look weird with their insecure portions removed. Clicking on the shield will let you load them, but will reduce your security and privacy.

4. Privacyfix

Privacyfix is where you can manage your privacy controls for Facebook, Google, the websites you visit and the companies that track you across the Web. Instantly see privacy risks and navigate instantly to where you can fix them. As you visit sites, get alerted to new privacy risks before you provide personal data, remove website cookies and request deletion of your personal data.

5. SwiftPreview

SwiftPreview is a simple extension that shows a customizable preview of any link on the internet so you can see the website behind the link before you click and so that you only click through to great content. It’s great for viewing sites with link shorteners, like Twitter, or anywhere you’d prefer to see a preview!


It’s pre-set up to replace them with cats, but if you hate cats, it’s easy to change it to pugs, or girls, or whatever you’re into. Or use your own RSS feed, like Nasa’s POD.

You can also add your own keywords to trigger the removal. It’s not going to be perfect, so adding a baby’s name might help. Hopefully this will spark conversation and change when you post about it on Facebook.

7. Speed Dial 2

Speed dial 2 is fast extension which replaces original New tab page. Save your favorite pages in one place with quick access to apps, bookmarks and browsing history. 

8. Hover Zoom

Browse images galleries with ease: move the mouse cursor over thumbnails to view images in their full size without loading a new page. Pictures are automatically resized if they don’t fit the window. recommended!

9. AdBlock Plus

Adblock Plus is a community-driven open source project that aims to make the internet better for everyone. It was originally created for the Firefox browser and with more than 100 million downloads it has become the most popular browser extension in the world. We are now offering Adblock Plus for Google Chrome™ (formerly AdThwart) as well and the community is working hard to produce the same value you know from the Firefox version.
