01. LastPass: Free Password Manager

LastPass via the Chrome Web Store

Remembering your password for multiple websites can be a hassle. Plus, it can be difficult to brainstorm passwords that are both unique and easy to remember for each new online account you create. LastPass wants to make this process simpler by generating new secure passwords each time you log into a website. After installing the Chrome extension, you can enter account credentials for websites you’d like LastPass to remember. The service will also ask you if you’d like it to remember certain login information whenever you sign in to a website in Chrome.

 02.Tab Wrangler

Jacob Singh via the Chrome Web Store


Leaving too many tabs open in your browser can get disorienting and distracting, especially when you’re trying to get work done. Tab Wrangler takes care of that dilemma by automatically closing tabs after they’ve been inactive for a designated period of time. It only closes tabs that aren’t pinned, and you can choose to lock tabs that you want to keep open even when you’re not browsing in them. Closed tabs are easy to recover, too; just click the Tab Wrangler icon to see a list of closed sites.

03.StayFocusd

Transfusion Media via the Google Chrome Web App Store

When your job involves sitting in front of a computer screen all day, it can be easy to get distracted by Facebook, Twitter, and the countless news articles flooding the Web each day. StayFocusd is designed to help you avoid those distractions — or just enjoy them in moderation. The extension allows you to set a specific time restriction on certain websites, with 10 minutes being the default option.

04.Google Dictionary

Google via the Chrome Web Store

Heading over to Dictionary.com or Google to find the definition of an unfamiliar word only takes seconds, but it’s even quicker with the Google Dictionary extension. Instead of opening a new tab to find the definition, simply highlight the word and click on the dictionary icon that appears next to the browser’s URL field after installing the extension. You can also click that dictionary even when a word isn’t selected to perform a dictionary search.
