Every day, home office workers and freelancers are looking for products that help them to increase their productivity. This sometimes can be a book that gives tips about how to work more efficiently, or sometimes an app or software and sometimes it’s an extension. As you know, Chrome has hundreds of extensions that can be used with your browser. Even if you are not a freelancer, those Chrome extensions may help you with your daily life and make things easier for you.
Save to Pocket
This extension allows you to record articles, videos, and similar media you see on the Internet and use them on other devices. You can synchronize your account with other devices and read an article or watch a video whenever and wherever you want. If you have an e-book reader like Kobo, you can pair it with the extension. With this, you can read daily articles that stored on your Pocket account through your e-book reader without ads and other distracting materials.
Grammarly is an extension that checks your e-mails and other written materials on Chrome and corrects them if they have any grammar mistakes.
