If you could only pick one extension from this list, it should be one of these great ad blocking services. The main function of Adblock is, hence the name, an extension that blocks all those annoying popups that inundate your screen. Not only do these extensions get rid of screen clutter, but ultimately it will make your computer run at a faster speed. Adblock and Adblock Plus (the paid version) are the most popular, but uBlock is also a fantastic choice. Both are free to try and see which version the user prefers.
Both Wunderlist and Todoist are really helpful extensions for making to-do lists, categorizing and organizing tasks and setting up helpful reminders. Both programs are easy to use and do very similar things. Try both and see which is more conducive to your work needs.
The internet these days is becoming flooded with what are known as trackers. Embedded on various sites on the internet, these trackers will attempt to monitor a user’s browsing history. Ghostery makes sure that these trackers are blocked and your personal browsing history remains private.
This extension allows the user to access their Gmail account without the internet. All past emails can be read and responded to.

This is a great app for people who tend to lose focus a bit too easy. Stayfocusd allows you to pick websites that may be a bit distracting and limit the amount of time you can spend on those sites. For example, if at work I only want to spend 30 minutes on social media, Stayfocusd will block my access to those sites once the allotted 30 minutes have been used up. It’s a great way to keep your focus a bit more in check throughout the work day.
Unsurprisingly, Grammarly is an extension that helps correct grammar. What is great about this app is that once installed it checks grammar not only for emails, but for social media and a wide array of other websites.
OneTab is fantastic for people who like to keep open a number of tabs. This extension helps organize those clutters of tabs into neat little lists. These lists are much easier to manage and are aesthetically a lot more pleasing to look at.
Whether it’s for a computer at work or your computer at home, any of these apps can be beneficial. While the free versions are very helpful, almost all of these apps have an upgraded version for purchase. Any of these Chrome extensions will help any businessperson.
