1. LINK TO TEXT FRAGMENT:

An offering by Google, this Chrome extension does exactly what it says. Link To Text Fragment creates an anchor link to the text selected on a webpage. The link can then be copy-pasted anywhere and when opened in a browser, the page gets scrolled to the selected text which appears highlighted for an easy and quick read. A very simple and minimal tool, it comes in handy when you want to share information and resources with your colleagues and want to back it up with proper citation. It is also a great way to corral relevant information to refer back to when required.

2. FREADY:

Fready comes in handy when there’s tonnes of reading material to go through that demands both focus and attention to detail. It functions as a word pacer that draws attention to text by means of a highlighted window that runs through the entire text document, focusing on a few words at a time. What adds to its utility is that Fready can also store web pages for easy reference later on.

3. SCREENITY:

Another great feature that it offers is in the form of a built-in screen recorder which can save your files directly to Google Drive. It is obvious, Screenity allows you to make the most out of your time.

 

4. ONE TAB:

One Tab could perhaps be the best solution to this problem. This extension closes the mass of tabs open in your browser and replaces them all with a single page that contains links to those pages, cleaning up your browser screen. One Tab also claims to free up to 95% of CPU and RAM space, enabling your computer to continue working efficiently, helping you get your work done quicker.

 

5. SAVE TO POCKET:

Save to pocket is a nifty extension that lets you save important stuff you may have come across on the internet all in one place so you can return to them for a quick or in-depth reference.

All it takes is a click on the icon and the page of your choice gets stored in a digital pocket, saving you the hassle of going through the chain of folders in the bookmarks section of your browser. If this is not reason enough to get Save To Pocket installed, the fact that all the content collected gets synced across all your devices should suffice to convince you!!

8. OFFICE EDITING FOR DOCS, SHEETS & SLIDES:

This is the type of chrome extension that will prove valuable for collaborative projects that involve differing preferences between Google Suite and MS Office. All it requires is dragging and dropping a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file onto the Chrome browser, and it would open up in the relevant Google Suite application.

This extension is a godsend for people that need to deal with having to type out certain pieces of text quite often. It is quite understandable that things can get really monotonous, really quickly.

Whenever typed out, those shortcuts expand into the piece of text they are meant to represent, saving the effort of having to type or copy/paste those pieces continually.

 

10. Post It All:

Be it the ones you stick to your desktop or the kind that hover on your computer screen, sticky notes are indispensable. Post it all is a leveled-up version of this modest commodity.

This ensures that these sticky reminders remain in your field of view as you work on your project, assuring that you don’t leave out vital inputs. Additionally, this saves you the trouble of having to leave your browser to access other applications for references and resources.
