The Google Chrome browser has literally thousands of extensions available, and they can do everything from blocking ads to improving your productivity. These are software programs that add new features or functionality to your Chrome browser. They’re usually free to use and readily available in the Chrome Web Store. Whether you’re a seasoned Chrome user or you’re just getting started, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best Chrome extensions currently available.

Best, in this context, is very subjective. The vast majority of extensions are specific to certain tasks, and most users would have no need for them, but some people would use that extension almost exclusively. It’s all about personal preference and need. For example, I have half a dozen extensions that relate specifically to my role at Android Authority, but they’re unlikely to enhance your life much. Similarly, the Google Translate extension is one of the most used ones, but mainly by people who need to translate between languages on a frequent basis.
