A few more Google Chrome extensions

Google Chrome extensions list keeps getting longer and more extensive with each passing day. I will list here some of the really cool add ons I have recently discovered.

1. Chromepad – This is a very useful extension which helps you take notes right from the comfort of your browser. So, if you find some interesting text on the web or maybe you just want to jot down a few words which came to your mind, Chromepad is the tool for you! The local storage box available from the Options menu of Chromepad lets you retrieve/view your older notes as well. Very useful.

2. Wikipedia – You may have probably guessed it. Wikipedia extension allows you to browse the mobile version of Wikipedia from its extension window. You dont need to visit the massive wikipedia page to access the articles anymore.

3. Aviary Screen Capture – This is more like a screenshot tool only with loads and loads of editing and uploading options. You can take screenshots of a particular webpage and edit it right from the comfort of your browser.

    Hi, I’m enjoying the Chrome browser too and I’m loving the extensions. I found one today that I like called Readability Redux and another one I like for blogging is Zemanta. Thanks for your list.

      Although I’m not really a fan of Readability Redux, I am definitely a regular user of Zemanta. For bloggers its an indispensable tool providing necessary image suggestions, tag suggestions etc. And the fact that it supports nearly all popular blogging platforms only adds to its appeal.
