10 Free Best Chrome Extensions

Good use of a Chrome extension can take a product from interesting to essential. Here are 10 free Chrome extensions I use every day to get more work done.


Buffer lets you take content from the web and post it on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. Just right click on an image or article and click on Buffer from the menu. It also allows you to schedule it to be shared later and you’ll be able to track traffic around your content.

The default Google Talk app is relegated only to inside Gmail. The Hangouts Chrome extension docks Hangout chats at the bottom of your screen and can overlay all your other windows when you get a new chat from someone. It even keeps a record of chats so you can go back and see who you should catch up with.

Google Translate

Google Translate lets you translate the entire web page. If you’d like to translate a sentence or two, highlight the text and click the translate button. You can even hear how the words are pronounced in the specific language you’re translating from.
