Extensions have long been stretching the functionality our browsers have to offer us. Branching past productivity, extensions add convenience and even customization as well as lending us a new way to interact with our favorite services. Chrome users have a very large web store to download apps and extensions from, provided you have the patience to go through the long list of them and the search feature finds something relevant for you. That said, here are the 39 best Chrome extensions we reviewed this past year.
