The Best Free Google Chrome Extensions

In January 2015, Chrome has 22.65% of the desktop browser market. According to Statista, it was 56.84% in December 2020—and higher if you consider mobile devices.

Chrome is popular. Then there are the extensions, much like Firefox. Its Chrome Web Store extras have rivaled Firefox’s for years and enable access to nearly every web program imaginable.

Realizing the popularity of Chrome, Microsoft redesigned its Edge browser as a Chromium-based version that supports all Chrome extensions natively while also supporting Edge extensions from the Microsoft Store Automatically, Windows 10 users get Chromium.

We’ve produced a list of several dozen Chrome extensions you should check out. Some are specific to Google and its services (like Gmail), but most extensions operate across platforms, so you may try them on any desktop (particularly Chromebooks) or mobile Chrome.

There’s no danger in trying these free extensions. To disable or remove an extension, simply type chrome:/extensions/ into the Chrome address bar, or right-click its icon in the toolbar. To remove an extension’s toolbar icon without uninstalling it, right-click and select Hide in Chrome Menu.

Here are our favorites; tell us if we missed one.
