Useful Browser Extensions
by Paula J. Hane
Over the years, I've migrated from one web browser to another as needs and changing technology dictated. For me, that's included Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and my latest browser of choice, Google Chrome. Once I adopted Chrome—on both my PC and my Android phone—I began to encounter all manner of browser extensions that have offered me enhanced functionality. I'd like to share some of these treasures that have improved the browser experience for me. There are similar extensions for Firefox and other browsers, but I'll focus on those I use on Chrome.
