Top 5 Chrome Browser Extensions for Productivity

Google Chrome is the most popular browser around and it supports a huge number of extensions, which are essentially plugins that add functionality to your browser. Browser extensions perform simple tasks that can add a great deal of efficiency to your workflow. They also consume a lot less system resources than standalone apps. They are usually free and easy-to-install and help you automate some tasks that appear redundant or cliche.

Boomerang is an email productivity tool that allows you to schedule your email messages to be sent or returned at a later date or time. You can write a message now, send it whenever, even if you’re not online. So, if your coworker is on vacation or away from work, you schedule your email for after they’ve been back a few days so as not to interrupt their time off.

You can also track messages to make sure you hear back, and schedule reminders right inside Gmail™. Read receipts help you check whether or not your mail has been read.

OneTab helps with tab management in Chrome. You can convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once. When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome. Information about your tabs are kept safe and never transmitted or disclosed to OneTab. Tabs are never shared unless you specifically use the ‘share as a web page’ button.
