The world wide web has grown up. It has become the place where we do business, find entertainment, and communicate with others. It has also become more dangerous, cluttered, and harder to use. In this video, we’ll outline three browser extensions for both Chrome and Firefox to help improve your web browsing experience, coming up next.
If you find it difficult to keep track of all the passwords you use, struggle to capture and share important information you find online, and are tired of dealing with the growing amount of ad-based clutter on websites, here are three web browser extensions that will dramatically improve your browsing experience:
1) Password Managers – Given the number of hacking attempts made every day against businesses, government agencies, and individuals, password security is incredibly important. Unfortunately, creating and remembering unique, strong passwords for every site you visit is a serious challenge. That’s where password managers like Lastpass and Keepass enter the picture.
These extensions act as password safes, allowing you to create strong passwords and store them in a secure ‘vault’ that only you have access to, which greatly streamlines and simplifies your internet experience, while simultaneously making it more secure.
2) Nimbus – If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is probably worth ten times that. Either way, the Nimbus browser extension for Chrome and Firefox has you covered, allowing you to take screen shots or create screencast videos on the fly, and providing you with an impressive suite of editing tools.
3) UBlock Origin – If you spend any amount of time online at all, popups and other types of unwanted advertisements are probably the bane of your existence. They clutter up the websites you frequently view and greatly detract from the experience. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. UBlock Origin is a lightweight, highly efficient ad blocker that’s capable of enforcing thousands of filters without bogging your system down. Removing ads can also help speed up your web browsing, making pages load faster and using less memory.
The right browser extensions can completely redefine your online experience, making it safer, faster, and more enjoyable. If you are looking for ways to improve your computer and network efficiency, give our team a call.
