Shareaholic Is A Must-Have Add-on For Social Media Addicts [Firefox]

You’ve probably signed up for a handful of different social networks over the years. Despite keeping these networks separate in your own head, the everyday browsing habits of internet users usually involve one main browser set-up, often with a bunch of extensions. But who wants to have a different extension for each social network you want to share to? Not me! Not when there’s a way of sharing to all your networks using the one extension, Shareaholic.

Make And Monitor Your Phone Text Messages With MightyText For Chrome

It’s a little more “instant” than e-mail but not as intrusive as a phone call. It’s convenient, but it’s not annoying if managed right. And most of all, it’s one of the most highly addictive forms of communication in the world. It’s for all of these reasons that I went out in search of a way to continue sending text messages with my phone even when my phone is nowhere near me, and that’s when I stumbled across the MightyText extension for Chrome.

Enhance Google Services with These 5 Add-Ons

Most of us use at least one Google service each day – usually much more than just one. Search, Gmail, Reader, Calendar, Drive, Play, YouTube…. this is just a partial list of the services we use every day. And for good reason, too. Google’s services are not popular just because they have the name “Google” next to them – they’re actually very good, and constantly provide their competitors with inspiration and ideas.

How To Filter & Download Multiple Files From A Webpage [Chrome]

After years of being a loyal Firefox user, I’ve finally made the switch to the same side of the river as many of my MakeUseOf colleagues and jumped to Google Chrome. Albeit late by most of your standards, I’m catching on quickly. The single thing that was keeping me with Firefox was their extensive library of add-ons. Being able to mass download within the browser is a big deal to me because I’m a bit of a hoarder.

Mega Button – Your All-In-One Solution For Google Chrome Settings In One Click [Chrome]

Chrome is, without a doubt, one of the best browsers available. However, one of its drawbacks is the lack of accessibility to its settings. If you’re curious about what I mean, go and find the Chrome Extensions page. Too easy? OK, go try and find the Chrome Memory page….perhaps you know where that is too, but how many steps did you have to go through to find it? If searching Google was one of them, stop counting – that’s too many steps already.

Unmissable Addons For Firefox On Your Android Device

Firefox for Android has a trick up its sleeve: Add-ons. Just as Firefox offers a more powerful extension system than Chrome on the desktop, it beats Chrome for Android by supporting extensions. You can install a variety of add-ons from the Mozilla Add-ons website. There are nowhere near as many as there are for the desktop version of Firefox – only about 80 at the moment – but there are some good ones.
