Google Chrome Extensions That Will Make Your Life Easier

If you’re like us and like to get tasks done in the most clever, efficient and productive way then you’ll understand why we love Google Chrome extensions.

Before we go ahead, let’s define Google Chrome extensions.

 

What are Google Chrome extensions?

“They are small software programs that customise the browsing experience. These extensions serve as features that enable users to tailor Chrome functionality and behaviour to individual needs or preferences.”

When it comes to producing work for our clients, it’s imperative that every element is on-brand and clean-cut. We double-check (even triple-check) that the colour is on point, the font is consistent and our work is polished.

For those of you who have not yet discovered the life-changing impact that Chrome extensions can have – get ready for our list of favourite, business-friendly extensions that will make your life easier.
