Chrome Extensions

Welcome friend. This blog is all about mindset, remote work and self-development. Join other friends to get the eCoffee Letters every week. Nice to e-meet you 🙂

For the average joe, browsers are just browsers. They simply help you navigate the internet and sync your search history. But with extensions, they do so much more. If you were a PC before now, with some of the best chrome extensions I'll mention, you become a mac. Sorry PC fans. 🙂

Also, all extensions mentioned in this post work with firefox.

Why should you consider using chrome extensions?

The generic answer would be that they make your life a whole lot easier. Better put, they help you reduce distractions, save time and be on top of your tasks. If you're a student, freelancer, or entrepreneur, then you want to adopt these extensions in your day-to-day life.

1. News Feed Eradicator

Newsfeed Eradicator Chrome Extensions

Take it from me, this extension is a lifesaver. Well, it depends on what you regard as “life-saving”. In my own case, I'm able to block the endless distracting news feed on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. With this chrome extension, you can replace the newsfeed section with beautiful and sometimes cringy quotes. So, if you've got business to take care of on any of these platforms, you can be sure that other people are not shoving their pictures, achievements, and offers down your throat.

2. DF Tube (Distraction Free for YouTube™)

Youtube Distractor Chrome Extensions

Youtube is a platform that can make you smart and dumb at the same time. It depends on what you go there to watch. Whatever case it may be, I'm sure you want to enjoy a distraction-free video, even if it's just one time for God's sake. I share your pain. This extension can block almost anything on youtube. From recommendations to comments, video info, notifications, playlists, and many more.

3. Minimal Twitter

If you want to be all over the place and be about other people's opinions, then Twitter is the best place for you to be. Don't get me wrong, Twitter helps you get your information out there fast but it has an overwhelming user experience for the consumer.

When you visit Twitter, it looks something like this…

Ad block Plus Chrome Extension

If Michael Jackson was an extension, then Ad-block plus would be the king of ad blockers. Online ads, even in the most unobtrusive manner can be annoying. Let alone websites that are ridiculously infested with tricky ads. This is where Ad-block plus comes in. This bad boy blocks ads on all websites, except for some sites that protect themselves against ad blockers.

6. Grammarly

Grammarly Chrome Extension

Lo and behold the extension that sees an error in everything. Grammarly is known as the world's best proofreading tool.

Scratch that, even native speakers need help with punctuations, spellings, and common errors in the text.
