Book Description

(The book was going to be titled "The 101 Best Chrome Extensions", but there were just too many good ones!)

Due to its simplicity, speed, and flexibility, Google's Chrome browser is the browser of choice for the majority of the computer-savvy population. Its huge selection of extensions is a major part of its appeal and success.

Extensions are like miniature upgrades that you can add to Chrome, increasing its features and capabilities. Extensions can do anything from block all advertisements on websites and blogs to alert you when you get new emails.

Author Tristan Higbee downloaded, installed, and tested out hundreds of extensions and this ebook highlights the best and most useful. Reading this ebook will not only save you the effort of wading through the thousands of available Chrome extensions out there, it will also help you find those extensions that will make your online life easier and more enjoyable. Some of them will even save you money!

The 138 extensions are broken down into the following categories:

* Core Chrome Enhancements
* Searching
* Security and Privacy
* Productivity
* Reading and Browsing
* Education and Information
* Advanced/Technical Tools
* Email
* Social, Sharing, and Blogging
* Video and Audio
* Shopping

This ebook is 11,800+ words in length and contains dozens of screenshots of the extensions in action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Usefull May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I got this book, I thought I was in for a load of poorly formatted links to useless extensions, or perhaps ones I already had. However, this book is incredibly useful with screenshots of some extensions and shortened URLs so you can type it quick if you're reading from a Kindle and want to use a computer browser (which, in this case, you probably will). The book also has alternatives to most of the extensions, so you are likely to get a good fit for whatever you need the extension for. I'm going to keep this book around as a reference, particularly for my friends who use chrome since they ask me about it all the time. Totally worth the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Much Goodness May 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This ebook is awesome! Tristan has put together a great resource of Chrome extensions.

These are nicely broken down into sections that make it easy for you to find the extensions right off the bat that might be most useful to you. Even then, I recommend you take the time to go all the way through the book because you'll find extensions you never knew you needed.

This has really helped my workflow. There are extensions for things I use every day but didn't know they had extensions, or had never thought to look for one. Pretty impressive in my opinion.

If you are an avid user of Google Chrome then YOU need to get this eBook. There are so many extensions available in Chrome that you will overlook so many of these highly useful chrome extensions.

This ebook was well written and offers an extensive list of Chrome extensions. Each extension is broken into their own little genre. I personally gravitated towards the productivity and the social extension list and proceeded to download a couple of the extensions.

For only $2.99 the extensions recommended in the ebook will save you time and money and more then make up for the minimal cost of the ebook.

Go get the ebook and stop wasting time doing things manually when Chrome can do things for you automatically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable May 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With Chrome having recently surpassed Internet Explorer in usage (if only briefly...for now), Tristan Higbee's book is the essential companion to optimizing your Chrome experience. Within the first 10 minutes I found two Must Have extensions that cut so much time out of how I did things before that, well, I can probably leave work earlier each day now...

Great addition to my tech library, Tristan, thanks for making the effort.

This is an excellent reference for me since I've moved from IE to Firefox and am slowly moving to Chrome. Now I have a place to go get the cool gadgets I had in Firefox! Thanks for putting it together for us!!!!

I've used Chrome for years and I've used a few extensions. But WOW! I had no idea there were so many--and that there were so many I'd find really useful. I've never heard of most of these extensions and I'm downloading several of them them right away. If you read this e-book in the Kindle Cloud reader, the author has included links to the extension download sites and you can jump there immediately. Very handy. Also, the author includes lots of screenshot images in this book so you can see what the extennsions look like and how they function without having waste time on them yourself. That's a great time saving feature so you can weed through the options pretty quickly and determine what will work best for you.

I'm really happy I got this book. It's definitively worth the money I spent on the book in terms of time savings and making my on-line life easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Time Chrome Lover...Now March 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was stuck using Firefox for way too long. I started using Chrome right about the same time I came across this book. Perfect timing!

The book basically lists out a bunch (138) of extensions that are all pretty handy. The extensions are broken down by topics such as Productivity and Email and Education & Information.

In some cases, Tristan provides screen shots to show what the particular extension does/looks like. Every extension has a brief but thorough explanation. Overall, it would be a faster read if I hadn't stopped after reading about each extension to go try them out!

Great resource to have if you're a Chrome fan (which now, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be).
