A few weeks ago, tragedy struck me on a Monday morning. My computer was on the fritz and I lost all the Google Chrome extensions I’d collected over the years. ‘Tragedy’ might seem dramatic, but I didn’t realize how much my workflow depended on my extensions until they were taken from me. For tasks as small as writing emails, providing feedback, and finding inspiration, I felt lost without them. From this experience, I’ve gained a newfound appreciation for my Google extensions and the developers behind them.
Whether you’re looking to improve your productivity or enhance your browsing experience, here are some of my favourite Google Chrome extensions I can’t live without.
The days of clicking ‘forgot password’ are behind you. With LastPass, you only need to keep track of one password! That’s right; with a single LastPass password, you can access any and all of your other applications. Designed to reduce the hassle of managing multiple user accounts and passwords, LastPass securely stores all your login data in one place. Complete with a secure password generator and identity verification feature, LastPass enables teams to safely share passwords with select team members and organizations.
Grammarly puts your mind at ease over unintended spelling mistakes and grammar errors. It’s like having your own personal editor looking over your shoulder while you write (minus the annoyance of someone actually looking over your shoulder while you work). With versions for desktop and browser, you’re covered on tasks ranging from large word documents to quick web posts. With Grammarly, you can feel confident in hitting send or submit on your messages, documents, and social media posts.
This tool is great for web developers and designers who are double-checking their work or looking for inspiration. With just two clicks, WhatFont displays things like size, weight, line height, colour, and other information on the fonts being used on a selected website. It even detects the typeface service being used, such as TypeKit or Google Font. Say goodbye to digging through dense code and CSS in your web inspector!
Image Capture makes it easy to take and share full page screenshots of your browser window. With just one click, the extension takes multiple pictures, stitches them together, and opens a full-page screenshot of your browser. From there, you can download the image in various file formats, making it an excellent tool for anyone looking to document or share what they’re seeing or experiencing on their personal device.
With all the different screen sizes and resolutions we have today, it’s essential to ensure your website translates well to various dimensions. Thanks to the developers of the Window Resizer extension, you can check your layouts right in your browser without needing to move to different devices. The extension comes with a variety of presets along with customizations for screen width, height, and position.
