Chrome extensions that will get you through a long day at work

Are you taking full advantage of the tons of extensions Google Chrome has to offer? Ten-year old Google Chrome is now the world’s most widely-used internet browser — in no small part due to the extensive number of extensions and add-ons it offers. Wired compiled a list of their favorite browser extensions “that elevate it from good to great.” Among them: The Great Suspender, which pauses tabs after a certain amount of time so they don’t use processing power in the background. OneTab, which condenses all the tabs you’re keeping open “to read later” into one summary tab. And Clutter Free, which makes sure you don’t have duplicate tabs open.

Chrome has lots of tabs, but the browser is not without problems, particularly when it comes to privacy issues and battery consumption. The Wall Street Journal put out a primer last week encouraging you to think about whether you’re using the right browser — arguably the most important app you have — which points out that “you can’t easily use Chrome without at least Google knowing what you’re up to.”
