11 Best Chrome Extensions for 2022

Let's talk about these Chrome extensions in detail. By the way, all the Chrome extensions mentioned in this article are free, but some extensions also come with paid plans.

1. Google Keep

Google Keep is a useful and simple extension for saving text, links, and images. You can also use this extension to take notes. All the links, pages, text, and notes you’ll save using Google Keep will be synced to all your devices.

2. Google Input Tools

Another useful and my favourite extension from Chrome Web Store. If English is not your native language, or you just want to write a document in any other language, then Google Input Tools can be really useful for you.

Currently, it supports 53 languages, including Hindi, Japanese, French, German, etc. You can go to this link to see all the languages.

3. HTTPS Everywhere

While surfing the internet, you might have seen a warning like “Your connection is not secure” on some web pages. HTTPS is the reason behind this because that particular web page is not using the HTTPS protocol.

In simple terms, HTTPS (Hypertext transfer protocol secure) is a protocol that secures the data transfer between the web browser and website. HTTPS Everywhere is a Chrome extension that changes the website’s HTTP version into HTTPS and secures your connection.

4. Paint Tool - Marker for Chrome

We can use the Paint Tool Chrome extension for drawing, adding shapes, and images on websites. You can also take a screenshot after adding the required text, shapes, etc. This extension could be useful when you have to explain something to your friend. This extension is very similar to MS Paint.

It includes the features like pencil tool, Bézier curve tool, bucket fill tool, screenshot tool, etc.

5. Touch VPN

VPN is a great way to hide your online activities on the internet, and it is also recommended to use a VPN whenever you visit an insecure web page. There are plenty of VPN extensions available on the Chrome Web Store, and it might confuse you about which one to use.

You can use Touch VPN because it is 100% free, secure, and offers unlimited VPN. It has more than 7,000,000+ users. Touch VPN has many servers, like Sweden, United Kingdom, Denmark, France, United States, Netherlands, and Canada.

6. Dark Reader

Another simple to use, yet useful Chrome extension. Dark Reader let you enable dark mode on any website. The dark mode is good for our eyes while using the computer at night, as it filters the blue light emitted from your monitor.

This extension is useful for the people who do their office work, study, or casually use their PC at night. This Chrome extension has 4,000,000+ users.

Grammarly is the most popular Chrome extension for checking and correcting grammatical and typographical errors. If you are the kind of person who does a lot of typing work, then this extension is very useful for you. Grammarly Chrome extension has more than 10,000,000+ users.

Although Grammarly is a free extension, it offers different plans like premium, and business to choose from. The free version of Grammarly offers basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation corrections.
