Google Chrome has thousands of FREE extensions that can modify and enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser.
- Adblock removes all the ads from Youtube videos.
- Draftback allows you to watch a video playback of a Google Doc which helps educators catch plagiarism and watch the writing process in action.
- Wikiwand changes the Wikipedia interface making it easier to read and visually more appealing (see image on the left).
- The Similar Pages extension finds web pages that are similar to the one you are currently on….great for researching!
Keep in mind if you have too many extensions running, they will slow down your computer. So the Extension Manager allows you to quickly turn on/off extensions.
Stay tuned for more information on great Chrome extensions!
