112 Best Chrome Extensions of 2021

Chrome Extensions are an integral part of the Google Chrome browser. These software and tools can enhance your browser to the next level by ignoring the need for extra software that you would have to use if web extensions did not exist. 

In other words, you do not have to minimize Chrome and open other apps or software if you use chrome extensions. For example, you might sometimes have to capture a part or the whole desktop screen/tab. You can just hit the screenshot extension that you have installed on your browser to take a screenshot, rather than launching any third-party software for the same task.

Therefore, I have listed the best chrome extensions you should try this year. I have tried my best to describe each one as much in the limited wording. Putting extensions under the subsections is the most rational thing I could have supposed and done the same here. It will help you.
