5. Download Master
Google Chrome undoubtedly has an excellent download manager, but it falls short in some areas. When you want to save all the files from a webpage and have to individually click on each one, it becomes tiresome. Use the Download Master extension to download all or some of the files linked to a webpage with the click of a button.
6. Session Manager
At times you must need to save your session as it is and bookmarks aren’t capable enough of doing that. You need your account signed in and your online work saved as it is. Now with the Session Manager extension save your current browser state and then reload it later whenever you want. That’s not all, save multiple sessions, rename them and manage them from the session library.
7. Google Mail Checker
Chances are that if you are using Google Chrome, then you are most likely a Gmail user. The only problem with Gmail is that you have to keep it signed in on a tab if you want to get an instant notification about new emails. Install the Google Mail Checker and it will show the number of unread messages on the extension icon. Access Gmail just by clicking on the icon to read new emails if you see the number of unread emails increase.
8. Google Calendar
Google Calendar can be a life-saver because when you work from home it becomes very important to manage your project deadlines, appointments, meeting schedules, etc. With this extension, you can save all your upcoming events and it even detects events from other webpages like social media websites. Just by one click you can add that event to the Google Calendar. It also gives you an at-a-glance overview.
9. Speed Dial
When you open a ‘new tab’ on Chrome, it shows the ‘Most Visited’ webpages. There is no option to customize it to your choice of visual bookmarks. With Speed Dial you can create your own speed dial list of the webpages that you need to use for work, irrespective of whether they are the most visited or not. It’s like adding a speed dial list to your mobile phone and you can view the entire list in the form of thumbnails laid out in front of you to click on.
10. Search by Image
If there is an image on the web and you want to search where it originated from or want to search for similar images, Search by Image comes very handy. To use this Chrome extension all you have to do is right-click on the image that you see anywhere on the web and click on ‘Search Google with this image’.
