With more than half of Internet traffic coming from Google Chrome users, it’s no surprise that there are thousands of browser extensions available. From extensions comparing price trends of your favorite items to ones that block advertisements or hide spam, there are options for all types of users. For those who are passionate about productivity, the amount of adds-on can seem endless – and that’s why we decided to take the time to show you some of the most productive extensions out there to get the most out of your day!
This is one of the most popular productivity extensions on Google Chrome, with a score of over 4.5 stars – and nearly 580,000 users, StayFocusd is a brilliant extension for people who are easily susceptible to distractions and who have a hard time concentrating. It allows you to determine the time you spend on sites like Facebook, 9gag or Youtube (in other words, sites where we are easily “sucked” into). With this extension, you can configure your account to block entire websites, specific domains, or even specific content on pages like videos, forums, games, and more. Once you’ve reached your time limit on these sites, StayFocusd blocks access to it for the rest of the day.
2. Nimbus Screenshot
How many times have you surfed the internet while doing some project and needed to show it to someone or document what is on your screen right now?
If you’re like a lot of people, you have no idea how to do this. With Nimbus Screenshot, this problem will be solved. Through this extension, you can capture an image of your screen, edit the image, include comments and elements such as arrows, tractions, and circles.
3. Checker Plus for Gmail
Checker Plus for Gmail is very useful for those who need to check their Gmail email box frequently. With this extension, you can monitor and manage your account on your desktop without having to open Google Chrome. Through it you’ll receive notifications whenever a new email is received and you can read, archive, listen to, or delete it.
The purpose of this extension is quite simple: The user determines what he or she needs to do and how much time he or she has to complete the activity. This will then set off a “tracker” to see if you are working within the time frame you have given yourself. Activity lists are separated by “today,” “next week,” and “this month.” Above the three lists, you can see a counter that shows the percentage of the day, month, and year. Prioritab acts as a “push” for all goals to be achieved.
Momentum changes the face of your browser’s “tabs” and places a motivational background to give you the inspiration you need to immerse yourself into your daily routine. It basically works as a reminder of what your mission is for that day. On the first run, the extension asks for your name, email, a password and, each day, asks what your goal for the day is. The result is this data placed in a beautiful background, accompanied by a motivational message that changes every time a new tab is opened.
This was the list of some useful Google Chrome extensions which can certainly increase your productivity. In addition to these, there are many others available in the Chrome Web Store. There, you can find more extensions that can meet your needs at work. Whether it’s to organize tasks, organize emails, share files or information, there’s an extension for everyone.
