Google Chrome is one of the most used browser having 36% marketshare in comparison of Firefox which has 36.6% of marketshare. I know the fact is that chrome sometimes gets to no responding mode and often hangs but if you’re a mac user like me, trust me, Chrome is the best which never hangs. I’ve not seen it getting into no responding mode ever since I am using it yet.
Just as much as I love chrome, I love the range of extensions it has to offer as well. There are huge number of chrome extensions available and here I’m building a list of those chrome extensions which I personally use, which I personally love and which I would personally recommend. So, here goes my list as per alphabetical order.
