Since its launch, one of the things that most catches the attention of its users is the versatility of applications that the Chrome Web Store offers for free to its users. It has everything, so much that confuses, and for that, we brought today the best names to optimize your work, increase your enjoyment, gain productivity, take care of safety, save headache, etc.



If you have trouble focusing on work and you end up distracting yourself from minute to minute with YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and want a radical measure, should try StayFocusd. With it you restrict the time you can access the distractions and that’s it. Example: Let’s say you only have 2 hours of access per day, after that deadline, the pages will be unavailable, returning only the next day.

Awesome Screenshot

Have you ever had to give a print to something you saw on a website and for that you had to press a Ctrl + PrintScreen, then open the paint or PhotoShop to paste the capture and then cut and finally save what you want?

Google Calendar

A must if you are too busy, or just forgotten, even. Organize dates, add reminders, set up “alarms,” share your calendar with other users (you can create a calendar for your company, for example), invite others to follow your routine, integrate with other applications : Microsoft Outlook, Apple iCal, Facebook events, etc.), work offline, and best of all: Take your calendar wherever you want with integration via Android.

It still has the voice feature that gives you the correct pronunciation in dozens of languages.

Social Downloader

And speaking of Instagram, only those who have tried to download a photo or video of Instagram to desktop knows the difficulty that is. Because the site does not offer the “Save” button after you right-click, the business is to capture the screen and crop the image (ie, not for video) or go to the element inspector and search the media in the page. A tremendous manpower.
