20 Chrome Extensions to Boost Your Laziness!

Being lazy means trying to save time by producing as quickly and with as little effort as possible. The following Chrome extensions will save you time and make your life a lot easier! However, it’s important to remember that the more extensions you use, the more resources your computer will use, potentially causing slowdowns (especially on low-performance computers).

I’ve purposely chosen not to go into too much detail about each expansion so that I can introduce as many of them as possible and pique your interest. Therefore, I recommend you to learn more on your own and according to your own needs.

1) Linkclump*

Despite the essential needs that have manifested themselves since ancient times and through humanity, I have never, ever, found an extension so simple and effective. But what does he do? Well, it’s very simple! Allows group opening of connections.

You can open all links, even image links, content in the selected frame, all with one click by pressing the button (for my part “CTRL”) and selecting with the mouse!

2) Stopwatch*

Complete, simple and effective, Chrono lets you manage all your downloads: pause, resume, cancel, restart, sort, filter, delete.

But that’s not all… the extension also offers a web page element manager. Called Chrono Sniffer, this option lists all elements on a page, whether images, videos, or documents, allowing you to read their descriptions and download them (very useful for web businesses!).

Table or Session Friendly : a tab manager that does everything OneTab does, but in more detail. Session Buddy likes Tablin nicer but with more steps.

Opinion: Better than OneTab, but slower to use

GraphiTabs : Like Tabli, but in graphical version.

Bottom line: if you want post-its, get One Tab, if you prefer a workbook, Tabli or Session Buddy, if you prefer police investigation tables in movies, get GraphiTabs, and if you hesitate, be stupid like me and get all three.
