Google Chrome Extension: Customize browse

Finally, I have decided to add on some extension on my Google Chrome to enrich my surfing experience and make it more variety. Basically, what I focus on is to find some auxiliary tools to save my surfing time. There are six extensions here which I have installed them in my Google Chrome today.

1. Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer
- Automatically previews pdfs, powerpoint presentations, and other documents in Google Docs Viewer.
Very user friendly since user can read the document file directly instead of download the document first.

2. Dictionary Lookup
- A small extension that allows you to quickly look up definitions of words and phrases in the Webster dictionary (through OneLook.com). Hold Ctrl and double-click or select any word to look it up - an inline box will open to the dictionary entry of that word.
First and user friendly. No need to type or copy a word to search its meaning.

3. Chrome TV
- free plug-in to watch online TV direct from your browser. With more than 3,000 TV channels from all over the world, this is best way to easily watch TV on your computer. All the channels you love – sports, music, news, movies, lifestyle, entertainment, movies and more – in one small icon on your browser. Simple, no registration needed and 100% safe.
This extension is also available for:

Internet Explorer @ http://www.tvtoolbar.org
Firefox Browsers @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/70436
For Mac user (Safari) @ http://safariaddons.com/en-US/safari/addon/64

4. html2pdf
- Generate PDF from any webpage instantly with a single single click.(note: current version doesn't support PDF conversion of https resources)
It takes time to convert from browse to PDF, but the extension of file is not .pdf. User can choose open option via relevant PDF reader

5. Ultimate Chrome Flag
This extension displays country or region name, Google PageRank, Alexa Rank and WOT information for the websites you're visiting.
The country name will only show the site provider's country. For example, all blogspot site is belong to United States, US.

6.Thunder,QQDownload,FlashGet Files Downloader
- This extension is basically intended for Chinese people as the download softwares it's aimed at are not popular outside China. Automatically change the Thunder, QQDownload, FlashGet Files to downloadable link.

To conclude, there are a lot of useful extension available at https://chrome.google.com/extensions. Feel free to find your favorite extension to enrich your online experience as well.

Good luck and have a nice day^^
