Just like the popular app, Evernote Web allows you to organize and save all your ideas and inspiration as you surf the Internet. For any project, you can save all your notes, research, and relevant webpage clippings in one easy-to-access “notebook.” You can also clip and save photos, audio, PDF, and all file types. Add tags to your notebook entries, and quickly search through your notes. You can also create lists for anything you need to remember. This is a great tool for everyone.
After you download this, you can easily find definitions to any word you’re interested in as you browse the web. Just select any word in any webpage, click the dictionary button, and a small bubble will appear above it with its definition. There will also be a toolbar version of the dictionary so you can view the complete, detailed definition if you prefer. This is a very useful reference extension to have on hand.
This extension will make viewing your favorite webpages even more pleasurable. If the ads on the sides of pages like Facebook and YouTube annoy you, AdBlock will remove them. Now you can view just content, no ads, on every website you visit.
Turn Off the Lights
If you watch a lot of videos online, this extension will make viewing them even more visually appealing. With one click, your computer screen will go dark everywhere except the playing video. You can even change settings so that your screen will go dark as soon as you hit the “play” button on any video. You can also customize colors and adjust the dimness level.
Add to Amazon Wish List
Have you ever come across something while searching the web and think, “I’ve got to have it?” This extension will make it easier for you to remember all the things you see that you want. Just click on the Add to Amazon Wish List button when viewing an item, and a popup will allow to you instantly add it to your Amazon Wish List. You can edit details before adding the item, too.
The most popular app for your smartphone is also available for your web browser. With this extension, you can enjoy the addicting thrill of Angry Birds anytime. There are even web-exclusive levels.
Google Mail Checker
This very simple extension will make it easy for you to know as soon as you have a new email in your Gmail account. While you’re browsing the web, a tiny red Gmail icon will be at the top of your browser. A number will display how many unread messages you have in your account. When you want to access it, just click the icon to open your mailbox at anytime.
This extension will allow you to read almost any book you want at anytime. There are more than three million free books available, and thousands more books available for purchase in the Google eBookstore. You can store unlimited books.
