Google Chrome Extensions for Everyday Use
There are applications that we want to work without turning them on all the time, like a VPN or a cryptocurrency wallet that we use for a casino online. Today, we will show you the most useful Google Chrome extensions for everyday use, and you can check them out and see what wonders they can do for you.
1. Google Calendar
There are many types of Google Calendar buttons that you can choose from. All it takes is to install them to your Chrome, and you will have easy access to your Google Calendar. There is no need to launch a new browser just to get to the Google Calendar application.
With this extension, you can:
- See your Google Tasks
- Receive push notifications
- Get updates and reminders
- Add an event quickly
- Add a sound notification
- Show the current date and time
- Get offline notices.
The Google Calendar extension is useful for busy people. It helps you organize and plan your days accordingly. Some of these apps even work with other meeting apps like Google Meet, Zoom, and Skype.
Some apps or extensions also allow you to add meeting notes. This feature gives you the convenience of saving all your notes in one place. You can also merge separate events into one and then use different colours for each meeting or event in your calendar.
Second on our list is Grammarly, an app that checks grammar and other standards for written communication. It is an excellent tool for people who write for a living online or people who make correspondences on a daily basis.
Here are the benefits of the app:
- Checks your grammar
- Makes suggestions to improve your diction, tone, and voice
- The extension highlights words and phrases in red whether you are offline or online.
Take note that you must be a subscriber of the Grammarly Premium plan before you can get all the benefits. With the basic and free plan of Grammarly, you can only check basic grammar.
With premium, you can even choose what English standard you want to use, such as British, American, or Australian.
The Grammarly Chrome Extension is free to install. For as long as you are on a website where you wrote words, Grammarly will automatically detect errors and notify you through red and blue lines under the text that you typed.
You can also download the Grammarly app for Windows Microsoft Word. You no longer have to copy and paste the text to the Grammarly online site.
3. ZenMate VPN
ZenMate is a virtual private network that you can use for free. It also has a paid plan, and it gives you access to more features and benefits that will keep your browsing experience safe.
Here are the pros of using ZenMate:
- High levels of security and privacy
- Affordable compared to other VPNs
- You can stream Netflix and Amazon Prime, so you can watch films not available in your country
- More than 4,200 servers
- Over 80 countries to choose from.
After installing the Chrome browser extension, you will see its logo at the top right-hand section of the browser window. Just click that, and now you have the option to turn it on or off. You can also launch it from your browser to toggle other settings, like which country you want your VPN to use.
ZenMate has three plans. The first one is the Free VPN, then we have the PRO, and then the Ultimate. All three plans are safe to use on your browser.
Most people who use the VPN are those that worry about their security — people who go to different websites and they do not want these websites to track them. It is also highly popular among Netflix subscribers.
4. Last Pass
The last on our list is Last Pass, an app that stores your passwords and log-in credentials on websites. It is a free password manager, and you can download the Chrome extension for free also.
Here are some of its benefits:
- Fills out forms easily
- Can store usernames and passwords
- Can store and fill out credit card information safely
- The app also works on mobile devices; use it on all your devices as long as you are logged in to the device.
So, why do you need a Last Pass? Last Pass can help you protect yourself from security and data breaches. It also has features where you get alerted if your information is at risk. For example, if a website was compromised, Last Pass will know, and you will get a notification.
Then, Last Pass also offers a multi-factor authentication where you can use an extra layer of security to ensure that you do not get hacked. Last Pass also has a system where you would receive a warning if your password was weak. It will give suggestions on how you can make a better password.
Chrome extensions are helpful. However, you must know that some of these can cause problems, like slowing down your internet. Some also have malware, so we advise you to take caution. Do not download Chrome extensions from companies that you do not know.
