One thought on “TOP 50 Chrome Extensions (categorized listing)

  1. Hi, great list. Kurator will be a great addition. It’s a new chrome extension that combines the functionality of a few extensions here.

    You save your tabs, by curating the page and saving it in folders you create. When you curate a link, it scrapes information off the page, and you get to modify or add comments, publisher, author and content tags.

    Links are all accessible under OneTab, in your bookmark manager. The curation folders offer a preview pane for reading your comments. You can share the folder with other Kurators, or publish them to your website. Give it a try – https://optimalaccess.com/kurator
