3 Chrome Extensions That Will Make You More Productive

Google is everywhere. It can see everything. But while conspiracy theorists can knock themselves up in creating apocalyptic ideas about this, we, sane people, on the other hand, can do something productive about it.

I personally like how I can just log in to my email, and I don’t have to log in to my other accounts anymore. I can go on YouTube and other websites with ease and synchronicity. I just need to remember to access my financial accounts in incognito from time to time, but other than that, I’m all set.

And that is not even the end of it. That’s just scraping the top of how Google can make our lives easier and more productive. This is exactly what we are going to talk about today. In this article, we are going to share with you three extensions that you add to your browser, Google Chrome, to make you even more productive!

AdBlock Plus

This is probably one of the most controversial free plugin that you can install. Controversial, in what way? Because it effectively blocks ads, malwares, and trackers – including even Youtube Ads! Of course, I’m not saying that it blocks ALL ads because, let’s face it, that will kill a lot of websites and put a lot of writers in unemployment, but it’s safe to say that only the safe ads remain.

Boomerang

Finding it hard to stay on track with your emails in Gmail? Then, install Boomerang, one of the handiest email-centered extensions. Boomerang helps you to schedule emails to send at a future time and date, postpone the receiving of incoming emails if you are not ready to deal with them yet, and even track the replies of important mail alerting you if you have not received a reply yet.

Noisli

Finally, this is by far, one of the most interesting productivity extension I’ve seen yet. Noisli provides you background sounds, which according to studies, helps to improve your focus and concentration. Aside from that, it also comes with a timer so you can track how much time you are spending per task.

There are obviously a lot more Chrome extensions out there aside from these three that can help you to become more productive everyday, but in the end, here is the real deal. What we really need is more discipline in doing things and managing our time. Internet will only distract us and waste valuable minutes of our lives if we only let it do so. Take charge of your life. Value every minute.
