When someone brings up a ‘hot tools for marketing’ topic, we all have a great deal to share. The market is overcrowded with tools, platforms, and services of all kinds.
Premium, freemium, tools to get you started, tools to help you advance your business, and so on.
But sometimes, all we need is a tiny, yet handy tool to help us manage our everyday routine. And this is where Google Chrome apps and extensions come in.
As the most popular browser worldwide, Google Chrome expectedly offers a rich collection of paid and free apps and extensions.
You can browse the Chrome Store to check out everything that’s available. But make sure not to get over-enthusiastic. Too many of these will make your browser heavier and may conflict with each other or certain websites.
So, be reasonable.
