That’s right, Google Chrome Extensions have arrived! As an avid supporter of the Google Chrome browser (ex-Firefox user), I was stoked to start trying out the new extensions. Previously, I had a ton of bookmarks that provided the same functionality and they’re all gone now thanks to extensions coming to Chrome. Think of your Firefox add-ons only with easier installation and without restarting your browser. Without further ado, here are over 20 of the most amazing Google Chrome extensions that every web worker should have!
