We live in an era, where we are more “connected” to the internet browsing. Or we could simply state it with browser. Yes, we are more inclined towards the mobile apps though, your browsing experience is much more enhanced that you think.
There are a lot of features which you can unlock by customizing your browser with extensions which cater to your needs – not only for the people, but for entrepreneurs too. It’s no surprise, Google Chrome has been undoubtedly the browser which is used by most of the people – and that number would probably come down to be around 71%. And therefore, many useful extensions have been built with that only.
But, be careful, stay away from installing TOO many of them. That might work in the opposite direction of what you have thought – and that is slowing down your browser. Install and keep only those which you would actually use on a daily basis.
So, you have been warned , now let’s come down to talk about some of those best Chrome extensions that will customize your experience. Here are the ones you should definitely check out :
“If you don’t know the difference between “Your” and You’re”, You are stupid.” That is legit true. Whether you are writing something or sending something to someone – Grammar and spelling mistakes can harm you quite a lot. You might even lose your authenticity and credibility. For letting that not happen – you could do two things. Hire a professional proofreader to check, or, install Grammarly Chrome extension.
With this, you’ll be able to easily spot misspelled words, grammar mistakes, and other issues in your writing at a glance. It also claims to be better than the traditional Microsoft Word spell checker and works through your browser right down to wherever you write online. It doesn’t just correct grammar, it teaches you about it too.
Buffer is mostly known as an auto-scheduling tool for posts on multiple social media channels.

This is definitely an Effin Amazing tool for you – for tracking your every effort and keeping a check on all the insights of your online website traffic. Proactively tracking your links might be time consuming and hard to commit to.

Time is money – as it’s been said over and over, this tool helps you with just that. Scheduling meetings with people around the world and jumping from one time-zone to another, till finding a time which suits both, takes a toll. Now, you can get over with that struggle by using Assistant.to – a scheduling plugin that lets you check your Google Calendar directly in your inbox and select the times that work best for you.
Your contact can then click the option that works best for them in the email and that’s it—the meeting is booked. Plus, you only have to ask once what time works for your contact and it even supports rescheduling.
Streak, is probably one of the best Chrome extensions out there out of all Gmail plugins. This has all important features which are totally free. Though it takes some time to get a hold of it, but once you know, it can prove to be the most powerful business development tool for entrepreneurs.
With Streak, you can track whether your emails get opened, make notes about specific contacts and categorize them according to your categories. It helps you to create pipelines for all your outreach efforts, whether you’re looking for a supplier or an influencer to feature your product.

This is certainly one of the best “email finder” solutions, trust me. Clearbit Connect won’t just help you find the email for a specific person or role at an organization, but also see background info about a contact directly in Gmail. However, like most free email finders, there’s a limit to how many emails you can find each month. You can try Anymail Finder as a backup.
It simplifies every detail by enabling you searching by company, role and by the name of that person. You can also view detailed contact information in the right sidebar of every email and which is more accurate and up-to-date than many others.
