Although, there are many Chrome extensions which may add variety of experiences to Chrome users, I found these extensions really useful. The fact cannot be denied that if on one hand the browser extensions make your tasks easier, but on the other hand, some of the extensions may also slow down your browser. So, a thoughtful choice should be made before adding any extension to your browser.
