Chrome extensions to boost your browser

Google Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers, and with its extension support, allows users to add greater functionality.

Rapportive, Page Snooze, Phonedeck, Google Dictionary, and URL Shortner, are sure to give more flexability within Google’s browser.

Page snooze

Page Snooze can help with those tab-overload moments by allowing users to put tabs to sleep for later viewing.

A time can be set on a page, with the tab then automatically opening at a later stage.

You can view and manage your snoozed tabs from the Page Snooze options page.

Phonedeck works as an Android smartphone app and a Chrome extension that work together.

If an SMS is received – it finds its way to the extension. If an SMS is written on the extension, it gets sent to the phone. Users can also see who’s calling without looking at their phone, as Phonedeck will pull up any information on the caller through the browser.
