5 Chrome Extensions You Need Now

Google's lightning-fast Chrome browser is quickly moving up the food chain after recently being named the third most-used browser. And with so many people to please, developers everywhere have come up with some fantastic extensions to help make your browsing life a bit easier. One I'm already in love with is called View Thru, which lets you see the full URL of a shortened link. Want to discover a few more? Just keep reading!

  • Ibrii — Sharing stuff you find on the Internet is easy with this extension that allows you to select specific portions of a website (be it an article, video, audio file, etc.) and share via Facebook, Twitter, and Google Buzz with a link just to the content you want, not to the whole webpage.

See the rest after the break.

  • FeedSquares — A beautiful way to view your reader, FeedSquares (seen above) gives you attractive thumbnail images instead of a scrolling text feed, which essentially turns your news into sweet eye candy.
  • Google Voice — The Google Voice extension allows you to see missed calls in your Inbox via a handy toolbar button, gives you quick access to your recent messages, makes phone numbers on websites instantly callable just by clicking on them, and supports audio alerts when you have an incoming call or text.
  • Translation Bar — Super handy when surfing foreign blogs, this extension can translate entire webpages with a single click.
  • Amazon Wish List — Not just for Amazon anymore, this extension allows you to add items from any webpage to your Wish List to buy later, or to save for this holiday season.
