Increase your productivity when working with large scores of online documents with the help of this nifty, little Chrome extension
For many of us, work involves using a computer, and unsurprisingly, the use of the Internet. A lot of the things we take for granted such as browsers or apps that boost our productivity have come a long, long way in the last decade. Be that as it may, whoever you are and whatever your line of work is, there’s always room for improvement in terms of productivity and workflow.
That said, if your work mainly revolves around the online world, and if Google Chrome is your browser of choice, then it might be worth checking out a little tool called eesel. eesel is a Google Chrome extension developed with one purpose in mind – that of bringing together all your online work and resources in one place. To be more precise, eesel’s mission is to make the process of switching between various websites, documents, and online tools a lot less time-consuming.
The beauty of eesel stems from the fact that it works with pretty much all types of Internet content. In short, it works with just about anything you open in your browser (these include documents, company platforms, websites, custom tools, and so forth).
If you’re wondering how eesel does this, well, it’s simple: eesel basically imports you work from your browser’s history. If this might make you think about security concerns, rest assured, everything runs locally, meaning that your history or your work basically never leaves your computer (browser).
The way eesel operates is so straightforward and so efficient that it actually allows you to declutter your workspace. For example, you don’t have to have lots of pinned tabs with all your important documents and online resources, as the extension is fully capable of organizing them for you. Better yet, you are also provided with the option of searching both in the title and in the content of your documents, therefore finding something you’ve worked on even last week should be quite easy.
It might sound a bit weird, especially if you haven’t worked with similar tools before. We won’t lie, eesel requires a fair bit of adjustment on your part until you can fully take advantage of what it has to offer, but once you do, we’re sure your productivity will improve.
As far as using eesel is concerned, all you have to do is install the extension from the Chrome Web Store, hit “CTRL+SHIFT+E” and open the doc or online resource you are looking for.
To conclude, eesel is without a doubt a very interesting proposition. It’s one of the few tools that are focused on centralizing the resources you work with and making them a lot more accessible. It’s very easy to use, it doesn’t burden your system as it does not use a lot of resources to work, it’s quite unobtrusive, and it all the data it uses does not leave your computer.

Save yourself a bit of hassle when it comes to choosing your next Netflix show with the help of this extension that automatically displays the IMDb and Rotten Rotten Tomatoes ratings
We all know Netflix, the streaming service that has made its way not only in our lives but is also very much an integral part of our generation’s meme and general culture. Netflix’s proposition is quite a compelling one: lots of shows, lots of movies, high-quality streaming, everything readily available with minimal effort on the viewer’s part.
Even though Netflix has its own internal rating system (and we’re not going to go into detail about that), there’s a big chance you rely on other review-aggregation platforms to help you decide which is going to be your next show. At the moment there are various good platforms of the sort, but arguably, none of them are better or more popular than IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes.
And, that’s exactly why you might find Trim, a nifty little Chrome extension, to be quite interesting. In just a few words, Trim brings the general IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings directly on Netflix’s GUI.
Once installed from the Chrome Web Store, it automatically ads both the platform’s ratings to most of Netflix’s shows preview thumbnails. We say “most of,” because the extension fades out what it considers to be “low-rated” shows (all shows rated with under 7 stars on IMDb).
This helps you get a better view of what shows are worthy of your attention or not at a simple glance, considering, of course, you’re the type of viewer that really holds the ratings of the said platforms in high regard.
To conclude, Trim is a minimalist Google Chrome extension that has the potential of slightly improving the overall experience on Netflix. It brings IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings directly on Netflix’s preview page, so you don’t have to manually look up the shows that you deem worthy of your attention.

Effortlessly access Ethereum-enabled DAPPS (distributed applications) within Google Chrome's window with the help of this interesting extension
Even though it came into being a lot later than the popular Bitcoin in 2014, Ethereum is arguably the second most successful cryptocurrency to date.
If you're thinking of getting into Ethereum trading then, of course, you're probably on the lookout for convenient and secure solutions that can help you perform transactions and possibly even develop, manage or run Ethereum dApps. If you're unfamiliar with the term, dApp stands from (blockchain) Decentralized Application, most of which are currently built on top of Ethereum.
Having said all that, there's a good chance you'll find MetaMask to be quite interesting as this extension basically transforms your favorite browsers into an Ethereum browser, all while allowing you to manage identities and perform crypto-transactions. It's available for Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and even Microsoft Edge.
If you're a Chrome user, then you can head over to the Chrome Web Store and install MetaMask with the least amount of hassle, just like any other extension. Once you start MetaMask for Chrome and you've undergone the simple process of creating (or restoring) one or multiple accounts, you'll surely notice that this extension looks and works like a typical Ethereum wallet application, meaning you can send and receive Ether with the utmost ease.
It's worth pointing out that MetaMask is quite thoughtful when it comes to security and, therefore, all your account vaults are locally encrypted and stored in your computer's Chrome browser.

To conclude, MetaMask for Chrome is a very useful tool that is bound to come in handy to every user looking to create or manage blockchain-enabled (more specifically, Ethereum-enabled) websites.

A web browser extension that allows you to keep track of your sent messages in Gmail, showing you marks which point out they have been sent and when the receiver viewed them
Back in the day, online chatting, messaging, and e-mail sending was somewhat of a pain. Most services worked well, that was not the problem. The issue was that you never knew when or if your messages were read by the other person.
Nowadays, apps such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp have this feature implemented. If you want the same feature when it comes to e-mails, then you can use Mailtrack.
You no longer have to wonder if people have opened your e-mails or not. With this web browser extension, you will be able to see if people actually viewed them.
The way it works is very simple. You just install the add-on and that's it. Then when you go to your Sent folder from your e-mail account, you will be able to see if they were read.
The program uses two check marks, similar to those from WhatsApp. The first one turns green when your e-mail is successfully sent and the second one does the same when the e-mail is viewed.
The whole concept of the extension is very useful, being something many people have dreamed of but thought wasn't going to happen.
However, it does have a downside to it, as the add-on only works with Gmail. If you are using Yahoo, Hotmail or any other e-mailing service, you will not be able to use Mailtrack.
I guess that if you've heard of this extension before you created an e-mail address and are interested in using it, it can help you decide which service you want to use. But creating another account just to be able to use this isn't something most people are willing to do.
Being able to see who read your e-mails and tell when people simply do not want to reply back can be very useful. As long as you are a Gmail user, Mailtrack can come in handy for you.
