8 must-have Chrome extensions in 2019

Our web browser is not just a simple way to “browse” the internet. Those days a long gone. Today’s web browser is an integral part of our daily lives and is typically the start of our connectivity, our research, and our entertainment.

According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, “As of February 2019, StatCounter estimates that Chrome has a 62% worldwide browser market share across all platforms.” It’s no wonder that Google allows developers to create “Extensions” which are essentially programs that work within the Chrome browser. For example, if your grammar and spelling are shocking, you might install Grammarly. A student might install a browser extension for a paper writing service. Looking for the best travel deals? install an extension that keeps a lookout for those deals for you.
