Product Description

(The book was going to be titled "The 101 Best Chrome Extensions", but there were just too many good ones!)

Due to its simplicity, speed, and flexibility, Google's Chrome browser is the browser of choice for the majority of the computer-savvy population. Its huge selection of extensions is a major part of its appeal and success.

Extensions are like miniature upgrades that you can add to Chrome, increasing its features and capabilities. Extensions can do anything from block all advertisements on websites and blogs to alert you when you get new emails.

Author Tristan Higbee downloaded, installed, and tested out hundreds of extensions and this ebook highlights the best and most useful. Reading this ebook will not only save you the effort of wading through the thousands of available Chrome extensions out there, it will also help you find those extensions that will make your online life easier and more enjoyable. Some of them will even save you money!

The 138 extensions are broken down into the following categories:

* Core Chrome Enhancements
* Searching
* Security and Privacy
* Productivity
* Reading and Browsing
* Education and Information
* Advanced/Technical Tools
* Email
* Social, Sharing, and Blogging
* Video and Audio
* Shopping

This ebook is 11,800+ words in length and contains dozens of screenshots of the extensions in action.

5Definitely worth the price--will make your online life better
By KBeal
I've used Chrome for years and I've used a few extensions. But WOW! I had no idea there were so many--and that there were so many I'd find really useful. I've never heard of most of these extensions and I'm downloading several of them them right away. If you read this e-book in the Kindle Cloud reader, the author has included links to the extension download sites and you can jump there immediately. Very handy. Also, the author includes lots of screenshot images in this book so you can see what the extennsions look like and how they function without having waste time on them yourself. That's a great time saving feature so you can weed through the options pretty quickly and determine what will work best for you.

I'm really happy I got this book. It's definitively worth the money I spent on the book in terms of time savings and making my on-line life easier.

5Big Time Chrome Lover...Now
By Sean Marshall
I was stuck using Firefox for way too long. I started using Chrome right about the same time I came across this book. Perfect timing!

The book basically lists out a bunch (138) of extensions that are all pretty handy. The extensions are broken down by topics such as Productivity and Email and Education & Information.

In some cases, Tristan provides screen shots to show what the particular extension does/looks like. Every extension has a brief but thorough explanation. Overall, it would be a faster read if I hadn't stopped after reading about each extension to go try them out!

Great resource to have if you're a Chrome fan (which now, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be).

5Surprisingly Usefull
By Sandwich
When I got this book, I thought I was in for a load of poorly formatted links to useless extensions, or perhaps ones I already had. However, this book is incredibly useful with screenshots of some extensions and shortened URLs so you can type it quick if you're reading from a Kindle and want to use a computer browser (which, in this case, you probably will). The book also has alternatives to most of the extensions, so you are likely to get a good fit for whatever you need the extension for. I'm going to keep this book around as a reference, particularly for my friends who use chrome since they ask me about it all the time. Totally worth the time!
