One of the many reasons I love Chrome is a bunch of free plugins. I use a lot of them, and only those that are (to me) useful. In this article, I will introduce 5 Chrome plugins that help me increase my productivity every day.
I have recommended this service multiple times, and I will continue to recommend it because it is best for capturing notes. Keep Notes is an application, a web browser add-on, site… that helps you quickly and easily capture notes. You can bookmark, share with friends, paint, hand-write, add pictures, shopping lists… ALL! It's the ultimate note service, and in addition, it syncs in real-time on all your devices, and it's all free. I've tried all the popular similar services, and each one had at least some flaws, and that's why I always go back to Keep Notes. Literally every thought, reminder, shopping list, the idea for article… I type in there, sort, color, mark, and it helps me get organized a lot throughout the day.
Main Features: It's
- Free with a
- Nice and Minimal Design
- Has a bunch of options
If you have trouble focusing on the essentials, this add-on will be of great use to you. You can use it to determine how much time you can spend on a site. When that set time expires, ie. when you spend more time on a particular site than you set, that site will become inaccessible to you by the end of the day. For example, you can limit Facebook, Twitter, Reddit… to a few hours a day, and when you exceed that limit - no more. The plugin has many options, so you can set rules for the entire site, sub-domain, specific page, etc.
- Enough is adaptable
- not keep your personal data on the use of Sites
This amendment exists to make your life easier. What he does is periodically check websites for changes. For example, if a naked article appears in which the author wrote that it will be updated soon, I task this add-on and he waits for those changes and notifies me when they happen. So I can get to work while the plugin goes through sites and checks content for me. You can set changes to be monitored throughout the page, in an HTML div, or simply indicate which part of the page is to be tracked. You can create tasks in Chrome itself, or on their server. When the change happens, you get a notification and you can see a comparable old version of the page and a new one.
- Easy Task Setting
- It can monitor both visual and code changes
If you want to be productive, you need to read and reply to emails regularly - as everyone appreciates. If you do not use any Email Client for Gmail on your computer, then this plugin will be good for you. This plugin notifies you as soon as you get a new email in Gmail. It works, of course, even when Gmail is closed, which is a major feature of this plugin. However, that's not all, this plugin can check multiple accounts at once! Plus, you don't have to enter your login information anywhere, it's just enough that you're signed in to Gmail in Chrome. In translation: you install the plugin and that's it!
- Easy to use
- Track multiple accounts at once
- You don't have to enter personal information anywhere
I left this plugin at the end because it's a bit longer. Noisli is here to give you a more comfortable working atmosphere, which (hopefully) will also increase your productivity. In short: you can create background sounds to your liking. For example, you start with the sound of the forest, add a little rain, a little fire, a river murmur ... and you get a pleasant work environment.
- Minimalist design
- Ease of use
- Predefined sounds (work, sleep…)
