To many people, Google Chrome is just a search engine and nothing more. Few people are aware though that Google Chrome has some extensions that can be pretty useful and great. There are extensions for more things than you can imagine and they are also very easy to use. You can save money, get more organized and learn new words, all with the help of these little known extensions. If you want to learn more about them, keep reading our suggestion of the best Google Chrome extensions.
If you are reading a book and some fancy word that you have no idea what it means, or if you simply discover a new word, you can use Google Dictionary. Not only will the dictionary offered by Google hive you instant synonyms, but it will also give you the possibility to hear its correct pronunciation, which might come in hand with some long, never heard before words. The Google Dictionary was launched as a separate extension at the beginning of August, 2011 and was originally part of the Google Translate service. Until August 2010, Google’s dictionary used definitions and synonyms from Collins COBUILD. After that, Google changed its source to the Oxford American College Dictionary.
If you love sales as much as everyone does, then the Camelizer extension offered by Chrome is going to be your favorite one. The extension is free and it lets you know when products from Amazon, BestBuy and Newegg go on sale. Even though it offers information on the three websites, it turns out that the Camelizer works best with Amazon. After you install the extension, when you go on either of these three websites, after you’ve clicked on a product, the Camelizer will show you the price history of that product. Another great thing that you can do with the help of the extension is to set a price for a certain product and once the price of the product drops to the price you wrote, you can get a notification in your email or on your Twitter account. This is great if you have a wish-list, but you are not willing to spend too much on a product.
If you think that you spend too much time on Facebook, YouTube or other website, the Web Timer will help you know exactly how much time you are spending on each site. The extension is easy to use and will keep track of your time. You can see the reports displayed on pie charts, you can check daily or monthly reports and you can ever share your statistics with your friends and compare them. There is an option that allows you to record data, without tracking certain sites.
In our opinion, these are the best Google Chrome extensions, but we advise you to check them out and search for others as well. You will be surprised at how easy these extensions will make life for you.
