tech-tricksIf you use Google Chrome and don’t use extensions, then you should probably give them a try.


They’re useful or interesting programs you can add to your web browser that provide new features, or block parts of websites that annoy you. They allow you to customise your internet experience.


To add them, head to the “wrench” menu, then click “settings”, which will take you to the settings menu.


Once you’re in the settings menu, hit the “extensions” option on the left hand side. Finally, click on “get more extensions” and you can search for whatever extensions you need.

The browsers I use are chrome firefox and Avant browser,The extension I like most is AD block plus. It can be used for all my browsers. I use chrome mainly for its fast speed, not the extensions. same to the firefox browser. The basic features are enough for me.
