There are so many amazing productivity tools that are now available on the internet that can make your workday easier, more productive, and enjoyable. And if you’re a Chrome user, you have access to an entire arsenal of extensions that are all about streamlining your internet usage. We’ve compiled a list of our top six favorite Chrome extensions that we believe will improve your computer-bound life.
The eyeCare extension is a super helpful tool if you have a desk job or spend a lot of time online. The extension is designed to help you follow the 20-20-20 rule to protect your vision, and also instructs you on ways you can improve your health by taking small breaks throughout the day.
If you create a lot of websites with us, this extension will make your life so much easier. Rembrandt allows you easily brand your website by automatically checking Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram to see if the handle you’re using in your web address is also available on those social channels.
If you’re guilty of spending way too much time cruising Facebook, Buzzfeed, or any other distracting site when you should be getting work done, this extension is just for you. Strict Workflow helps you stay productive by blocking the websites that are distracting you. It will block access to productivity-draining websites for 25-minute intervals and then reward you with a 5-minute break to internet surf to your heart’s content.
Momentum is an extension that populates a personal dashboard when you open a new tab in your Chrome browser. Rather than seeing a generic home screen, customize your dashboard with useful content. Set a daily focus that you’ll be reminded of every time you open a new window, get an inspirational photo and quote, or access useful information like weather updates or your to-do list.
LastPass is a complete lifesaver for those who share computer access with others or cannot for the life of them remember their passwords. Create a LastPass master password and you’ll be able to access saved usernames and passwords that will autofill login information. Without the need to memorize tons of passwords, you can create different, highly-secure passwords for every online account you have.
All you typography nerds out there are going to completely love this one. Once you install the WhatFont Chrome extension, you can find out what font is being used on a website simply by hovering your mouse over the text you’re interested in.
