Best Google Chrome Extensions

Google Chrome extensions can make your life easier in every way. Sure, some of them are safer than others, and you always run the risk of your data being compromised, but if you get the right ones, you will be able to make the most of your work and activity online.

In today’s post, we’re looking at some of the best Google Chrome extensions out there, especially for the coming year. Give them a shot if you have never tried them out. 

Top Google Chrome Extensions

ContactOut

Everyone does outreach, and everyone knows how challenging it can be to find someone’s email address or telephone number. Well, fortunately for you, ContactOut is here to help. 

With this extension, you will be able to pull people’s social media profile links, email addresses, as well as telephone numbers right from their LinkedIn profiles. 

Grammarly Premium

Grammarly is one of the most popular tools for checking grammar, spelling, punctuation, and much more. The extension can merely point out the cross mistakes that you make while you’re on social media or while writing emails. 

But it can be a lifesaver in some cases, especially since nowadays, most people are in a hurry when they type. You can use the free version, but it will only point out the major spelling errors in your writing — not much else. The paid version costs around $140 a year. 

Followup.cc 

You can use this extension for anything from email tracking and drafts to scheduling. The best thing about it is that it automatically cancels an email sequence if the person replies. 

Friendfilter.io

If you tend to have a lot of Facebook friends, many of which you do not even interact with, you probably want to do some cleaning every once in a while. This is even truer if you have talked at conferences or organized meetups in real life or online — you might end up with hundreds of friend requests every month from people you’ve never met. 

Even though FriendFilter isn’t endorsed by Facebook, it’s fairly safe to use. It works by locating inactive profiles and removing them from your page or profile. 

vidIQ 

This one is by far one of the most useful Google Chrome extensions for Android, iOS, or any other operating system for that matter for YouTube creators. 

It tells you both how other videos are doing in terms of search and rankings, but it also gives you suggestions related to the keywords you can use or how you can improve your tags so that you get your videos ranked easier and faster. 

The pro version even lets you perform keyword research so that you can find the right terms for your future videos compared to what your competition is doing. 

Redirect Path

This extension basically flags up errors and redirects (301, 302, 404, and 500), but it also shows you the HTTP headers, as well as the server IP address — and all of this, with just one click. 

Mangools

This is one of the most versatile SEO tools you can get. It lets you check on anything from on-page SEO to the backlinks that a page or a website has acquired and the keywords it’s ranking for. 

Check My Links

This link checker can crawl through any page and look for broken links. But why would this be useful for you? Well, if you’ve ever used the Skyscraper Technique, you’ve probably had to look for broken links so that you can pitch to those site owners and ask them to replace the link with your own. 

Check My Links finds the broken links in a timely fashion so that you can use them to your advantage. 

Email Extractor

In some ways, this extension is similar to ContactOut, which we have mentioned at the beginning of this article, but it pulls people’s email addresses from websites, not from their LinkedIn accounts. 

It might not be able to pull all of the emails, but even with its success rate, it can be pretty useful for an outreach campaign. 

LastPass

If you’re looking for one of the best Google Chrome security extensions, this one might just be it. Not only does it keep your usernames and passwords neatly organized in one place (the LastPass vault), but it also suggests very powerful passwords for the new accounts you create. 

On top of that, LastPass lets you use it with a physical key, too, so it would be impossible for someone to break into your account.
