Did You Know? Chrome Plugins

arrow showing Chrome settings locationE+DS is a proud supporter of Google Chrome. And sure, you can get by with the out-of-box version, but you can make it so, so much better by using Chrome Extensions.**

To add Extensions, click on the three horizontal bars at the upper right corner of your Chrome screen, select Settings, then click Extensions.

You’ll see all the Extensions listed you didn’t know you already had. Can you think of some capability you’d like right in your browser window? Scroll down to the bottom and click “Get more extensions”. Find one, add it, and play around…and if you don’t like it, come back to the Extensions screen and disable or delete it. Then find another that does what you want. (**Tip: Many of these are also available for Firefox, too.)
