Google Chrome Life Hacks That Are Worth Using

I’m a lifehacks fan! Through the years, I've learned quite a few Google Chrome Life Hacks worth telling others about. Chrome has many wonderful Google extensions that can help you make your online experience better. Plus, there are a few other neat tricks of the trade too.

I'm a fan of using add-ons that make my life simpler. I have already written about many ways for you to add more money in your pockets. It is filled with apps and extensions you can use to save or earn money back. As I find more goodies like that, I'll be sure to add them to that post!

Google Chrome Life Hacks Using Extensions

PicMonkey 

PicMonkey is certainly one of the two photo editing software I use to make my images look better. PicMonkey has an extension that allows me to take screenshots straight to their editing page.

LastPass

I don't know about you, but keeping track of the many passwords we have to remember for all of the wonderful programs we use is quite taxing. LastPass helps me to be able to quickly access my accounts without having to reset my passwords all the time. (I can do it while on the go too because it works on my cell phone too.) (Please note: Pen and paper do work too, but it's more time consuming to have to hunt down the page it's on than to use LastPass.) Plus, I can share my login information with my assistant WITHOUT giving them the right to know what I've set my password to be.

Colorzilla

Colorzilla comes in handy when you want to make changes to a color theme on a project. You can quickly choose colors on a page and also access prior colors used with a few clicks of the mouse. I use Colorzilla often when I'm making images for the blog and also for other clients.

Grammarly 

Grammarly Writing Support

Grammarly by far saves me so many times. Grammar is NOT a strong suit of mine. Grammarly helps me to look a bit more professional as a blogger.

OneTab

I am terrible about opening up MANY tabs on my computer with every intention of reading the material before I get up. However, I have ended up leaving the computer and not finishing them out. Until I found OneTab I ended up having to either bookmark a whole bunch of pages I didn't need/want or just closing out of them to only have to find them later. OneTab allows me to save all of those wonderful websites in a matter of seconds. I can do all kinds of other neat features with it too. Best of all, it's FREE to use.

Save to Google Drive 

Save to Google Drive is a handy extension that allows you to share parts or all of a website straight to your Google Drive. That comes in handy when you need something for research papers.

Google Similar Pages

While I may love doing research and having the chance to earn Swagbucks, I do like handy tools that save me time. The Google Similar Pages extension helps me to find similar pages without going back and doing another search.

Sideplayer™

How many times do you want to watch a YouTube video but yet do other things at the same time? Granted, you can open up two tabs, but that means you have to divide your screens accordingly. With Sideplayer™, it will automatically take your YouTube video and create a small screen on the side of your browser page and stay with you as you surf the web.

Netflix Party

I have friends and family members in other states that I want to watch certain shows with on Netflix. Now I can do that without being right there with them, with Netflix Party we can watch Netflix together in sync while being able to chat on the same screen together.

Netflix Categories

How many times have you been in the mood for a particular kind of movie/show and couldn't find it on Netflix? I've been there one to many times. That's why the Netflix Categories extension is so useful for me. I can easily find shows based on my mood with a few keyboard strokes.

Clean Fox 

Clean Fox is for those of us who use Gmail as our email system. Clean Fox allows us to easily see what emails we open from senders and how often they send us emails. We can quickly manage them with this Google extension.

More Tips and Tricks

As much as I love their apps and extensions, there are other neat Google Chrome Hacks that I find beneficial.

Changing Users

As you know, I do work from home as a professional blogger, so I have a lot of links and resources I use while I'm working that I don't need during my downtime. It's nice to be able to switch from a business Google account to a personal one. When I switch over to the personal account, it's filled with bookmarks that are for all pleasure and entertainment value. It's nice to not have the ‘work' resources staring me in the face.

Bookmark All Your Tabs at Once

If you've got a million tabs open and want to save them all, Command+Shift+D for a Mac or Ctrl+Shift+D for a PC will give you the ability to save them en masse to a new or existing folder.

“Pin” a Tab Instead of Bookmarking

For sites, you visit all the time, right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” in the menu to make it a permanent fixture on the left side of your browser.
