There are a lot of productivity apps for smartphones and a lot of productivity tools for PCs, but did you know that you can use some amazing Google Chrome extensions that will improve your productivity and take it to the next level.
Here is a shortlist of 5 useful Chrome extensions you must start using to become more productive when you are spending time on the Internet.
Go Fucking Work is a Chrome extension that acts as a website blocker. Just configure the extension and tell it which websites you wish to block (like YouTube, Facebook, Netflix, Twitch, etc.). After a proper configuration, every time you try to visit your blocked sites, you will see a cool message. With the words of creators – Get some fucking work done. Redirect fucking unproductive sites to motivational messages.
StayFocusd extension has the same purpose as the Go Fucking Work, but it is a much more polite alternative. StayFocusd is a Chrome extension that works by limiting your access to websites you want to block. It allows you to limit access for a specified amount of time. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day. It’s highly configurable, allowing you to block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, games, images, forms, etc).
Having dozens of tabs opened at a time can be quite confusing and enlarge the memory used by your browser. OneTab is a smart extension helping you save memory while using the Google Chrome browser. OneTab sorts all opened tabs in a list, and get you the option to view each of the tabs when you want.
Adblock Plus is the most popular ad blocker ever (Used on over 100 million devices). Get rid of all types of ads and customize where ads should be allowed to be shown. However, we hope you realize that ads power the free internet we use and help content creators, so enable ads on websites you care about.
Strict Workflow uses the Pomodoro technique to keep you focused. It blocks all types of distracting content for 25min so you could focus on work and then give you 5min break where you can access the blocked content. In short – 25min/5min workflow: 25 minutes of distraction-free work, followed by 5 minutes of break.
