The 4 basic Chrome extensions

There are countless extensions, choosing which ones you must have will vary from user to user, but there are 4 that, no matter who you are, no matter what you browse, no matter what you do on your free time, you must have installed. There are also countless post showing which are the most important extensions out there, but those are for specific purposes, these ones are basic and all users must install.

Adblock Plus

The most important extension since the creation of extensions. This extension will hide intrusive ads, block some types of tracking, and even hide social buttons such as comment plugins, Like/+1/Tweet/Share buttons. Of course, this can all be changed in the options.

Adblock.

HTTPS Everywhere

Yes, HTTPS protocol is safer than HTTP. This extension will force a website to go into “Safe mode” or into HTTPS if possible.

HTTPS Everywhere.

Chromoji

Chrome doesn’t support emojis by default, so you need an extension to do it. Chromoji is what you need. (I already talked about it)

Chromoji.

Turn off the lights

Finally, the one that everyone loves but few people know about it. This awesome extension will darken all the exterior of YouTube videos to make it look like a cinema... or at least that’s the idea. Works in YouTube, Metacafe, Vimeo, TED, and more.

Turn off the lights.

Whether you like these or not, you need them, so, install them and you’re welcome.
