Best Google Chrome extensions to speed up and improve browsing experience

There are several extensions that are not needed if you’re not interested in switching from Chrome. For example, Xmarks is not necessary since Chrome has a built-in bookmark synchronization feature. With this feature, users can access their bookmarks anywhere they use Chrome. Whether it be on the desktop or mobile, their bookmarks will follow them.

Let’s get down to business and talk about the best Google Chrome extensions to improve your life on the web:

1] better Browser – for Chrome: Users of Firefox will know this extension as FasterFirefox. This extension is all about enhancing your web searches. If a user wants to know the meaning of a word, just highlight it and watch as the definition pops up before your very eyes. It’s like magic, but more practical.

On Google Search, there’s an infinite scroll feature tacked in. No longer will users have to click next to visit second or third pages, just keep scrolling until what you’re looking for reveals itself.

2] Feedly: After the death of Google Reader, thousands of refugees took to the streets in search of a new home. Many stretched out their hands, but Feedly was the one that got most former Google Reader users interested.

This extension is all about having your feed under a single roof where they can be accessed quite easily.

We like the fact that the icon shows the number of unread stories in the feed, so users will always be kept updated.

Users can post whatever they want at the same time, and they can even set a timeframe.
