These days, the world moves fast, and with constant connectivity shifting how and where we get things done, you might be feeling the pressure to stay on top of your personal and professional goals and deadlines. Luckily, technology can help you boost productivity with just a few simple tools. If you use Google Chrome to get stuff done – both personally and for work – we highly recommend that you try one of these 3 productivity-boosting browser extensions.
Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities, and for that reason, you might find it difficult to stay focused and motivated on the task-at-hand. Hey, we’re only human, and sometimes the siren song of our favorite YouTube videos is too hard to ignore! But, you can mitigate this problem with StayFocusd, a Chrome extension designed to help you get more done in less time. The extension works by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. Simply set a timer and tell the program which sites you’d like to block, and StayFocusd will temporarily prevent access to those sites while you get your work done.
If your job involves a lot of writing – or, if you’d simply like to level up your game when it comes to writing effective emails – Grammarly is a must-have for your Google Chrome browser. As you might have guessed by the name, the extension helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online. Further, Grammarly can automatically check for typos when you type a Tweet, publish a blog post, or send a Facebook message. It’s like having your own copyeditor, right there on your screen!
It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words – in which case, a Loom video is worth around a million. The loom is the video capture extension you never knew you needed for your Google Chrome browser. With Loom, you can capture, narrate, and share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand the issues you are facing and aid in communication. Plus, with a video, you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can also use the technology to create simple how-to videos. The opportunities are endless!
