instant blocking of intrusive advertisements;
automatic text translation from other languages;
downloading data, even if the page does not intend to do so;
creation of reports and uploading of statistics;
password management: saving, generating and much more.

Extensions for Business
What is an extension?
A Chrome extension is a plugin that enables integration with other services and adds specific features to your Google Chrome browser. This means that open web pages are changed depending on the extension type.
To add an extension to your Chrome browser, go to the Web Store, search for the add-on you want, click the "Add to Chrome" button and agree to data usage.
Chrome browser extensions for your business
Chrome extensions mainly include task and social media management, productivity at work, communication and entertainment in the office. Some examples of valuable add-ons for managers are:
This tool allows you to mark interesting parts of articles, blogs, videos and PDFs and collect them in one place. The extension also lets you bookmark entire articles.
A data safe and password manager stores passwords and essential data such as passport numbers, driving licence or credit cards. Keeper also generates complex passwords.
Social Meter allows you to assess your online presence by opening your website and then clicking on a social network icon – the tool shows how often users of different media interact with your website. For example, Facebook, Reddit, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ are available. In the same way, you can keep an eye on your competitors.
This Chrome extension is a feature-rich solution that takes screenshots of the entire web screen and the areas of the screen you select. Furthermore, you can easily edit captured screenshots with writing, cropping and painting tools to personalise them.
Add-on helps you choose better hashtags to increase the visibility of your business on social media. You type in terms and get an instant analysis that shows whether your hashtags are "good" or, on the other hand, "useless".
