Top Chrome Extensions To Increase Your Productivity
It’s difficult to be organized and focused when you’re doing work online. You can easily get distracted and lose track of time. Thankfully, there are good Chrome Extensions that can help you be more focused and productive. Here are some recommendations that you can try for yourself.
The first Chrome extension we can recommend is the overrated Momentum, but it really deserves the hype. Momentum replaces your Chrome dashboard every time you open a new tab. You can also personalize your dashboard by setting goals and reminders for yourself. Aside from daily nature pictures and inspirational quotes this extension also gives you the ability to track your to-do list, check weather forecasts, and set links that work as bookmarks.
Next, we have Google Dictionary. If you encounter words that you’re unfamiliar with you can just simply highlight them and Google Dictionary will give you the meaning of the word. So instead of going or opening a new tab, this Chrome extension makes your life easier.
The third is Dualless. If you don’t have two monitors but you need something that can help you switch between pages or split your browsers, this extension can do that for you. In just two clicks it gives you several ratios to choose from. It’s really a great solution for those who work with a singlescreen.
Cite this for me is basically a website finder that is helpful for doing your research. This also allows you to cite the study and article, as well as what not to use. You can choose which format you are assigned to use in your research papers, so there’s APA, MLA, Harvard, and Chicago format. But to be sure, don’t forget to double-check and don’t rely too much on this extension. Instead, use this as a guide or to get ideas from.
If you’re someone who reads quickly and often skip some important lines of information then this extension is a good solution for you. Visor is a reading aid and screen dimmer that also gives you the ability to set how many lines you want to be able to read at once so you can focus more clearly.
Forest provides an interesting solution to save you from Internet addiction. You start by planting a seed in a digital forest, then in the next 30 minutes, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation and start to browse the websites on your Blacklist, your tree will wither away. This extension gives the user a different sense of achievement and responsibility to keep steer away from distracitons.
Since you’re spending more time online, you should also take care of your eyes by using dark themes for websites. This eye-care extension enables night mode that creates dark themes for websites by inverting bright colors, making them easy to read at night or in low-light. In addition, you can adjust the brightness, contrast, sepia filter, dark mode, font settings, and ignore-list.
Planyway is a team calendar and timeline inside Trello to visually manage your schedule, workload, and due dates across Trello boards. It lets you coordinate your project plans, share schedules with your team, and have an overview of who’s doing what and when. It also offers weekly, monthly, Gantt charts, timeline views, showing multiple boards in one place, as well as Google Calendar 2-way synchronization.
It’s the ultimate app for managing Tasks, Reminders, Lists, Calendar events, Grocery lists, checklist, helping you focus on work and study by tracking your working hours. It uses the Pomodoro Technique and To-Do List into one place, allowing you to capture and organize tasks into your to-do lists, start a focus timer, set reminders for important tasks and errands, and check the time spent at work.
You can now remove all distracting websites from your life by blocking them to help you stay in your productive zone. You can even set yourself a focus timer and make sure you keep on track throughout the day while at work or school.
