Although Google Chrome is the most used browser in the world, it still has many limitations that its creators have not yet fixed. Fortunately, independent developers usually do something about it and create extensions so that users can access special functions that the original software does not yet have. Which ones are the best?
According to Xataka, a specialized technology portal, before installing a Google Chrome extension, you must verify that it is not a hoax, since many cybercriminals create false programs to infect computers. A good way to validate an ‘add-on’ is by looking at the rating (stars it receives), as well as the comments of other users.

What are the best Google Chrome extensions
1. Adblocker or Adblock Plus
If you are tired of excessive advertising on certain web pages, these extensions are the ones for you, as they hide all ads, even prevent annoying ‘pop-ups’ or pop-up windows from appearing. It also works for YouTube; that is, you will be able to watch your favorite videos and there will be no advertising to ruin your experience.
People who download from the Internet (series, movies, etc.) usually hate the famous shorteners like AdFly or Linkbucks, which ask us to see an advertisement (for 30 seconds) to see the links of Mega, Google Drive, Mediafire, etc. If you don’t have much time, this extension is ideal for you, since it automatically skips all advertising.
3. WA Web Plus for WhatsApp
This Google Chrome extension is recommended for people who use WhatsApp Web to chat with their friends through their computers, since it allows them to have access to additional functions such as hiding the ‘online’, recovering deleted messages, among other options that you can turn it on or off manually in the settings.
4. Google Docs Offline
Thanks to this extension, users can create, edit or view any document they have in Google Drive, even if they don’t have internet. This ‘add-on’ can be very useful, for example, in case you have to write an urgent document while traveling by plane. Everything you do will be saved even if you are offline.
5. Mail tracking for Gmail – Mailtrack
If you usually send emails through Gmail and you are tired of not getting any reply, then this extension was designed for you. Thanks to it, you will be able to know when the recipient opened your mail, something similar to what happens with the blue WhatsApp checks. In this way, you will know that they have lied to you or if they really did not see your e-mail.
