Lesser-Known Chrome Extensions


I had done research before I wrote this post. Every single extension here is handpicked by me. With that being said, let’s just dive into the list.

#1. Twinword Finder


Almost all of us have used Ctrl+ F on the Chrome, right? When you have to find out a specific word on the webpage, you can use the shortcut to trigger the search field.

What if you want to find the synonyms? Then, the shortcut doesn’t work well. It would be better if you search for image, it shows synonyms (like picture, photo) along with the actual word as well.

The extension highlights the paragraphs with desired word in yellow and presents the words on the right side of the screen.

#2. ShowPassword


We often type wrong characters as passwords and then empty the whole field because we don’t know exactly what character went wrong.

When we encounter such a problem, it would be better to see the password as the exact characters. That’s what ShowPassword does.

You can setup the trigger from options of ShowPassword. There are multiple ways including double click, ctrl and a few others.

So, you will never have typos in your password anymore.

#3. HoverCards


Hovercards get rid of unnecessary opening of tabs. Whenever you want to check out something like a YouTube video, Imgur image, Tweet, Reddit or an Instagram post, you can just hove the mouse pointer over the link.

Guess what? It will display the content of the webpage, to which the link points. In case you are interested, you can use Click For More option.

The best thing about this is you can even play a YouTube video inside the card. And, this one can reduce the browser tab clutter.
