The Best Chrome extensions


Yesterday, the extension directory of Google Chrome was made available to the public. Meanwhile, there are also many hundreds of extensions to the direct and free download. One quickly loses track of everything, because there are no categories. So here’s the top 10 extensions for the mini-browser from Google.
Forecastfox Weather


Forecastfox Weather uses the U.S. on-line weather service AccuWeather. The advantage of AccuWeather against other major services is the worldwide availability. One finds there actually villages of Germany, which have fewer than 10,000 inhabitants. However, there are problems with accented characters, so you must write without diacritics (Lübeck -> Lubeck).

But makes sense, because there is not just a few pages, which have better functionality when they are calling with IE. A very good example is Outlook Web Access, which looks really awful with all other browsers.

If you want to use an effective ad blocker and can reconcile this with his conscience, but rather should then install Chrome Plus . This web browser (based on a current version of Chromium) has a real advertising blocker. Disadvantage of the "homemade" versions of Chromium: These are a lot slower than Chromium or Google Chrome.
