Google Chrome turned out to be one of the best browsers in short span of time. I’m not sure how many of you are a fan of chrome browser, but from a user perspective I love chrome. We have already shared some productive chrome extensions earlier to do more in less time and today we are going to extend our series by sharing more useful chrome extensions which you can consider installing.
Chrome extension store is full of useful extensions and here at SML, we have covered many such extensions in the past. In case, if you have missed it, I will hand-pick some of the post which any Google chrome lover like you and me would consider installing.
