I'm constantly on the lookout for new extensions to help me be more productive. I tend to get "extension happy" from time and time and need to go back and clean up the ones I don't use on a regular basis.
Of the ones I have, these are the 11 I use most often.
- Grammarly-Lite: Smart Spellchecker—Every place where I need to enter text is an opportunity to make a grammatical or syntactical mistake. People form their impressions about you based on your spelling and grammatical prowess. Parts of this service are free and parts require a paid subscription. It's worth every penny.
- Keep Awake—This is helpful when you are making presentations with your Chromebook.
- Pocket—Quickly save what you need to read later.
- goo.gl URL Shortener—Use this extension when you have a lot of links to share but want to keep the look "clean." It also offers you the ability to track how many people clicked on the like you shared.
- Lastpass—Easily generate new passwords, complete forms with pre-determined profiles, and more with this extension which helps you utilize the power of the best password app available.
- Buffer—Quickly share what you need to, when you need to, and to what social networks you choose with this extension.
- Google+ Notification—You don't have to have Google+ open in a tab in Chrome to quickly review your updates.
- Send from Gmail—Reading something and realize you need to share it with someone else via email? You're just one click away.
- Google Cast—When it's time to do a presentation, you'll want this extension along with your Chromecast.
- RSS Subscription—Yes, I still love and use RSS feeds. When one is available, this comes up in your Omnibox. Simple. Easy. Done.
- Google Voice—Quickly send or read text messages, listen to voice mails, or even place a call.
Please note: This is by no means an exhaustive list.
