Our Top 5 Chrome Extensions

Chrome is now considered by many to be the best browser available and has over a billion active users worldwide (learn more about Chrome in our recent blog post). One of the advantages of using this browser is the vast array of extensions that can be used to customise Chrome help to meet your specific needs. Not to be confused with web apps (separate pieces of software that run on the browser such as Gmail and Xero), extensions are components that are downloaded which enhance your browsing experience. From productivity boosting to display modification, there are hundreds of options to choose from so it can be hard to know where to begin.

That’s why we thought we try to help with a run-down of five current favourites:

Save to Pocket

Save any web page to view later without leaving the page using a single click. You can also add tags to help categorise your saved pages.

Hubspot sales

This is a great business tool that provides information allowing you to improve your sales (or even credit control) process. Key features include: seeing when emails you send are opened, view information about a contact (company, social profiles, recent posts) and scheduling emails to send later.

LastPass

Only ever remember one master password again – LastPass will auto-generate and log you into to everything else.

Buffer

Enables the scheduling of social media posts from directly within a web page – just by clicking the Buffer icon. The extension integrates with several social media sites as well as allowing you to view detailed analytics of the performance of your posts.

Giphy

This fun extension lets you browse a huge collection of GIFs and send them via Gmail or social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
You can browse the full range of extensions available in the Chrome Web Store. If you’d like to learn more about how G Suite (Google Apps for Work) and Cobry’s services could benefit your business, please get in touch.
