The Best Chrome Extensions

Are you confused by the thousands of different extensions in the Chrome Web Store? Do you find it difficult to distinguish the best apps from the time wasters? We’re here to help.
In this article, you’ll find our curated list of the best extensions for Google Chrome. They include suggestions from both our readers and our writers.
Make sure you leave your own tips and suggestions in the comments; we’ll consider them next time we update the page.

Privacy and Security

The first step to enjoying yourself online is making sure you’re safe. Install these privacy and security extensions to protect yourself 24/7.

Click & Clean


Do you share your computer with another user? Are you paranoid about sites tracking you and leaving cookies on your system?
Click&Clean lets you delete URLs, clear caches, remove cookies, and wipe your download and/or browsing the history, all through a single button.

GetHoneyBadger [No Longer Available]


Heartbleed. Yahoo hacks. Credit card theft. There are so many online dangers you need to be aware of.
GetHoneyBadger will check stats and information of any site you visit. It will give you an insight into whether a site is suspicious by revealing which technologies the site is using.

Web Of Trust
This is a crowd-sourced tool that rates websites based on a site’s trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy, and child safety — helping you browse safely. At its core, it lets you avoid sites that are known to be harmful, but like all crowd-sourced software, it should be used with discretion.

ScriptSafe


Also known as ScriptNo, ScriptSafe is for advanced users only. It works in a similar way to Ghostery, but it much less exclusive. It means you’ll be alerted to almost every script on a website, and disabling them all will make lots of sites fail to load.
On the flipside, it’s easy-to-use interface will guide you, making sure you only load the scripts that are needed for the content you want to see.

HTTPS Everywhere

This extension encrypts your web usage to HTTPS whenever possible to help keep your private information safe. It is part of a collaboration between the Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation – so you know it’s both trustworthy and safe.

The aptly named Weather extension will give you both the current and upcoming weather outlook for your location. You can customize it to show personalized locations and preferred units of measurement.
