Top 5 Chrome Extensions

One of the big benefits of using Google chrome is that you can customise the browser and make it your own adding extra extensions to it. Adding your extension is easy, simply download the extension using your Google Chrome browser, press continue button on the bottom left of the browser and then press install on the window that appears. That wasn’t hard was it. There are hundreds of extensions out there but here are my top 5:

1. Ibrii 

Ibrii easily allows text, audio and video to be extracted using a drag and drop method from a webpage and shared to your favourite socialising sites such as Facebook and twitter.

2. FlashBlock

This extension can automatically block Flash content on a website which can mean less of those annoying adverts. In addition to this, FlashBlock claims to free resources lowering memory usage and reducing cpu cycles which means you should see a small increase in your computers performance.

3. IE tab classic

Like Google Chrome but miss the Internet Explorer interface? Well now you can have the best of both worlds. IE tab classic lets you run Internet explorer in Google Chrome.

4. Mozbar

That’s right SEOmoz have now made their popular SEO tool available to Google Chrome as well as Firefox now. The Mozbar shows various details about a website such as the Page Authority, Domain Authority, mozRank, mozTrust, Domain mozRank, Domain mozTrust. For those who are not familiar with Search engine optimisation, this basically tells you how attractive this website is to search engines.

5. Weather underground

This nice little extension shows the weather in your area as well as some other information like humidity as well as when the sun will set or rise. Granted if I really wanted to know what the weather was like I would just look out of my window but it’s still a nice feature to have

Well these are my top 5, what are your favourite Chrome extensions?

GUEST POST: Who are Digital Gadgets World?

As many of you know when shopping online for consumer electronics and gadgets you are usually swamped for choice which for some can be very intimidating which in turn makes buying goods online a daunting task.

Here at Digital Gadgets World we aim to bring you simple easy to understand product reviews whilst still providing you with all the relevant specifications and information you need to make an informed purchase.

We get lots of people asking what sets you apart from all the other product review sites out on the internet. There are two main differences between us and standard product review sites the first being that we always write in simple easy to understand terms so as not to confuse those who are not familiar with technical expressions etc and the second is we hand pick only the best products using a set list of criteria meaning that all the products listed on our site are of top quality, high performance/top end specifications, durable, easy to use/set-up and most importantly of all at a price which is both affordable and reasonable for the product in question.

We only review products which are listed on and the reason for this is when one of our website users wishes to make a purchase they will be redirected to Amazon which is a well known, trusted and reputable site. Consumers feel safer buying via a website like Amazon compared to an unknown source.

We are always adding new products and even entirely new product ranges so as to keep up to date with the latest and greatest technology on offer, we currently cover a wide range of products including digital cameras, desktop PC’s, laptops, notebooks, iPods, MP3 players, MP4 player, Amazon Kindle eBook Reader, standard external hard drives and portable external hard drives.
We hope that one day our website will become of use to you and aide you in making an informed purchase perfectly suited to your personal needs.
