Today, Wednesday, Google announced the best Chrome browser extensions that were launched during the year 2022, in different categories, such as productivity, learning, and entertainment.
“Throughout 2022, we loved seeing the many ways developers designed Chrome extensions,” the American tech giant said in a post on its blog. “From a growing, hybrid global workforce to digital learning and virtual gaming, the transformation we’ve seen this year extends to add-ons,” she added.
“Whether you’re designing an email or designing content, extensions can help automate, share, and grow your work for a more productive experience on the web,” Google said.
Among the best additions in the productivity category are Tango, which automatically creates how-to guides as you work, SwiftRead, which allows users to read up to three times faster, and LINER as a custom search assistant.
Google added that the Compose AI tool helps users automate their writing using artificial intelligence, while the addition of Visbug allows designers to make adjustments to the texts and images of the website.
With regard to additions that help users focus while working, Google said that the addition of Workona Tab Manager works to organize the large number of tabs that open at the same time and to prepare workspaces for organizing projects and helping to follow up on what is important. CrXMouse Chrome Gestures add browsing productivity with custom mouse navigation shortcuts.
Google mentioned some of the Chrome additions that make playing and watching video better, including the RoPro add-on that enhances the experience of more than a million players in Roblox by adding dozens of unique features to the game. And with eJOY, it is possible to watch movies and videos with dual subtitles and learn a language while watching movies.
In the Education category, the company mentioned the addition of Equatio which makes math digitized, helping teachers and students at all levels create math phrases quickly and easily. And for any student writing a paper, the MyBib: Free Citation Generator plug-in automatically generates a bibliography and citations as you browse the web.
It is noteworthy that Google announced at the end of last November the best applications and games in the Google Play Store for the year 2022.
