10 More Popular & Useful Google Chrome Extensions

1. Google Reader Checker

google-reader-chrome-extension

Google Reader Checker is very much similar to TPGoogleReader which we had seen in the previous post. This is from the same developer who developed the Gmail Checker extension for the Chrome web browser. It will display a new button in the Chrome menubar that shows the count of the unread news items in Google Reader.

2. AdBlock+

Probably one of the most useful Google Chrome extensions. We had seen AdSweep extension in the previous list and you can consider AdBlock+ to be an alternative for that.

3. FlashBlock

flashblock-chrome-extension

Personally, I hate those flash animations on the websites which considerably slows down the page loading time. Add FlashBlock and Flash elements won’t play unless you click them.

4. Google Tasks

The Google Tasks add-on integrates Google Tasks into Google Chrome by allowing the user to access the tasks directly from within the web browser without having to open the Google Tasks website. Simple and easy to use extension.

5. Google Wave Checker

6. LastPass

Few readers complained that ChromePass (which was included in the previous list) was tagged as a virus by Avira AV. In that case, you can try out LastPass. It is one of the best secure password managers and generators around.

7. Xmarks

Xmarks is a popular bookmark syncing tool. It’s a longtime favorite of Firefox users and the Chrome version – though only in alpha testing – looks like it will be every bit as good. You can encrypt and automatically sync your bookmarks.

8. Vince’s Clock

vince-clock-chrome-extension

Vince’s Clock adds a clock to your bookmarks toolbar. This is also useful if you set your taskbar to autohide but still want the time displayed somewhere prominent. Hover over the analog clock, and the extension also displays the current date.

9. gPDF

gpdf-chrome-extension

This extension allows the user to open pdf documents directly in Google Docs. This means that no pdf reader needs to be installed on the computer system to read pdf documents. Also, it will reduce the chance that the document exploits security vulnerabilities in the installed desktop pdf reader.
