Trending Chrome Extensions for April
Anyone who goes on the Internet knows that it can sometimes be cluttered with so many ads and other distractions that it becomes hard to read any articles at all. With Readability, users can create a comfortable reading view by disabling surrounding web page clutter. One can choose to “Read Now” or “Read Later,” which would save content to a personal reading list. Kindle users can even use this extension to send any page to their device as well.
TinEye Reverse Image Search
TinEye is a really interesting trending Chrome extension – it is the first image search engine to use image identification technology to help users find out where an image came from, how it’s used and versions with higher resolutions. It finds exact image matches, including those that have been cropped, edited or resized.
Does it drive you nuts that some sites disable the option for you to right-click on something, like an image? By resetting the oncontextmenu to its default setting on many elements of the page, this extension restores the context menu that you have so often missed.
Magic Actions for YouTube
This trending extension for Chrome comes full of great features for YouTube users, from the AutoHD feature and ad blocking to volume control with one’s mouse wheel, cinema mode (with custom color themes), one-click snapshots and much more. There is even the ability to hide comments, which, if you’ve ever read the comments on some YouTube videos, might be the best thing about this.
Speed Dial 2
Let’s face it, no one likes the current new tab page design on Google Chrome. This extension has sought to fix that by offering fast access to one’s most visited pages, bookmarks and browsing history. You can completely customize the page’s design, along with exporting and syncing your settings to other devices. Speed Dial 2 even provides in-depth browsing statistics that will show you just how you spend your time online. With your favorite pages, apps, bookmarks and history all in one place, this is what the new tab page was meant to be.
