11 Must Have Chrome Browser Extensions For Your Business

Do you use the Google Chrome Browser?

Below you’ll find 11 must have extensions to add to your browser. Some are for productivity, some are for peace of mind, and a couple are for creativity and inspiration.

If you’ve never added an extension before click here for the Google Web Store to explore your options.

When you add an extension it will appear to the right of the URL address bar.
All of the extensions we’ve shared below are free, and appear in no particular order. Each of the Links go to the Extension in the Google Web Store.

Facebook Pixel Helper

If you are using Facebook Advertising and have the Facebook Pixel on your website, this Chrome Extension is a must have.

It allows you to check at a glance if your pixels are loading and firing correctly on your pages.

For us this means peace of mind. We use Facebook a lot and if the pixel stops firing for any reason we want to know so we can get it fixed ASAP.

Turbo Ad Finder

I love this extension. It’s the exact opposite of what many users on Facebook want. This extension hides everything except ads in your newsfeed. If you’re anything like me it’s too easy to get pulled into the timeline – something catches your eye and you’re off down the rabbits hole. This extension makes sure that doesn’t happen.

So if you’re looking for some inspiration for your Facebook Ads then this is great, you’re seeing current ads. Just because you see the ad doesn’t mean it’s great – check out the engagement on the ad to see if it’s getting likes, comments and shares.

Video Speed Controller

Time is our most prized community and when I use this extension I feel like I get time back – sort of 🙂 This extension allows you to speed up (or slow down if you need to) videos you’re watching. I’ve used it on video’s in websites, courses, YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo. It’s a must have for anyone that watches any video online.

Do you find your computer runs slowly some days?

It could be because you have a lot of tabs open in your browser. This extension allows you to save all open tabs in One Tab – your computer performs better and it’s so much easier to locate the tab you want.

Awesome Screenshot

How many times have you seen a page or something online you’d like to take a screenshot of, but it’s too small to see when you minimise your view so it all fits your screen?

This extension allows you to take a screenshot of the whole page. Check it out, there are so many applications for this extension.

Tag Assistant by Google

If you’re using Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager and Adwords on your website/s this is a great extension to check that things are working okay. Again it’s something that offers piece of mind at a glance on your pages.

Google Docs Offline

Momentum

This is more than an extension, it becomes your screensaver.

If you love images, want a daily inspiration, somewhere you can add you main focus of the day and a to-do list then this is a great option for you.

You can add links you use a lot, see the weather and customise it to suit your needs. A great option is you are visually stimulated.

If you have a business page on Facebook – or are someone that loves to share on your personal profile – this is a great extension for you.

When you find a page or video you really want to share all you need to do is click this extension and a Facebook Share box will pop-up, select where you want to share it, add some text and share away.
