This tool allows the user to hover over a linked thumbnail image and view it in a simple pop-up window. It's quite convenient if you often browse sites such as Reddit, which feature very small thumbnails for large images. The tool will display an image in its native resolution — unless that's larger than your computer screen — and it supports animated formats like GIF and GIFV. It even allows for scrolling through a list of images on Imgur without opening the site.
Unlimited music service. Using this application you can easily find and listen to any song you want! It works with the world's largest free music libraries to provide you with high-quality music. Usability is on the top.
Boomerang for Gmail
Boomerang allows Gmail users to postpone sending messages, something that's sorely missing from the default user interface. It's especially useful if you do business with people in other time zones (or continents) so that you don't accidentally send that invoice request at 3 a.m. The service also includes reminders, which are handy if you're waiting on a response, and applications for Android and iOS that let you use Boomerang when you're away from your computer.
LastPass is an online password manager and Form Filler designed to reduce the headache of managing multiple user accounts and passwords, making your browsing experience easier and more secure. LastPass also includes the ability to import and export passwords from major password storage services such as RoboForm, 1Password and KeePass, as well as Chrome, Firefox and IE's built-in password managers.
Readability combines the functions of a "read it later" bookmark tool with a reading-focused Web page reformat. It automatically pulls out the text and key images from a page (ideally news or blog posts) and shows them in big text that's easy on the eyes. The extension can also send pages to your account, or even to a Kindle for comfy reading later. The tool is configurable for your ideal reading preferences, too, and it automatically syncs across computers and mobile devices.
Hangouts is Google's messaging client, which also moonlights as the stock SMS client baked into some Android phones. Hangouts is available as a regular website and as a mini tool housed inside Gmail, but if you're a regular user, this standalone version is quite handy. It works just like a standard messaging client, complete with integrated notifications for incoming messages.
OneTab quickly compresses all of your open tabs into a single tab page with links to all of the Web pages you had open, allowing you to quickly flush all of the tabs from your browser, while still allowing you to go back to them for easy reference right after. Users can then restore tabs one at a time, or all at once. Users can also easily export their tabs into a list of URLs or a Web page for easy sharing.
Evernote Web Clipper
Frequent users of Evernote, the popular notation and bookmarking tool, will definitely want to check out this first-party extension. It allows users to quickly highlight text, images, or both, and save them to Evernote for later consumption. Custom modules also allow for greater functionality on frequently-used websites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Amazon, and there's a built-in screenshot tool. Notes and images can be tagged or assigned to specific Evernote notebooks.
StayFocused is perhaps the opposite of the aforementioned Panic Button extension. The aim of this extension is to limit the amount of time you spend on the Web and force you to get back to work. Once a user has spent an allotted amount of time on his or her specified websites — say, Reddit or YouTube — those sites are blocked for the rest of the day. Settings allow you to block specific sites, or operate in reverse, allowing access only to specifically approved sites.
Chrome Remote Desktop
There are many options for accessing your PC and helping someone else with theirs via remote desktop tools, but none of them are as affordable or as easy to use as Google's first-party solution. Once installed, it will allow you to access your home computer — including the desktop and other non-Chrome applications — from any device that can run Chrome, even Android or iOS devices. The interface is simple but effective, and as long as your connection is stable, it's quite speedy to use.
